Nicholas Courtney died Tuesday after a battle with cancer. He was 81.

If you don't know the name, perhaps Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart of UNIT will ring a bell.

If there is still no "Oh!" there, all I can say is you missed out. I will say that in the clip, he's the one one's not Jon Pertwee - and if that's no help it's because you don't deserve any.

"Chap with the wings. Five rounds rapid."

Footnote: As further proof as if it were needed that there is nothing rightwingers can't turn into an opportunity to take a slap at the left, the editor of blogs at the rightwing paper The Telegraph (UK) had to say in the course of noting Courtney's death that he, the editor, had recently watched some episodes of the show from the 1970s and expressed his irritation at the "Left-liberal subtext of many of the storylines." Y'know, "cringe-making" stuff like peace and understanding and environmentalism and internationalism and crap like that.
