Five Rounds Rapid!: Autobiography of Nicholas Courtney - Doctor Who's Brigadier
Author Nicholas Courtney
Nicholas Courtney was the only actor to play alongside every incarnation of Doctor Who. Courtney played the part of Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, the uncompromising, stiff-upper-lipped quintessentially British soldier who did battle with Daleks, Cybermen, Ice Warriors, Yeti and Autons. This book explores Courtney's life from youth to television stardom, looking at his setbacks and triumphs, his career, divorce and his new-found happiness, but focusing on his years in "Doctor Who". He discusses every "Doctor Who" story he has appeared in, narrating anecdotes from behind the scenes with Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker and the rest of the "Doctor Who" incarnations.
