RIP Nicholas Courtney

We've lost the Brig.

I know his family's and his friends loss is the greatest and my heart goes out to them.

But we've lost the Brig and I can't stop crying.

I don't remember a time when there wasn't the Brig.

There was always supposed to be the Brig.

I'm glad we got to see him again in the SJAs but I wish he'd been with the new show as well.

I think this calls for The Daemons.

Chap with wings, five rounds, rapid.

::hug:: I thought of you after I heard the news because I knew he was a favorite of yours. Doesn't seem quite real yet, even after having to post the news on [ profile] who_daily.

Just this weekend, John Levene mentioned him being ill, but I don't think any of us realized he'd be taken from us so soon.

Its such sad news. I literally don't remember there not being a Brig, even if I was too young to consciously remember seeing his debut in The Invasion, I know I did and The Pertwee years are etched into my childhood.

It must have been really hard to do the newsletter:(

I've known Nick for many years now, and I still can't believe he's gone. :(

I've been worrying about you since I read the news. I grieve for your loss.
