    I miss the Brig immensely! I was crushed when the show implied that the doctor tried to call him only to discover he’d died. They just really seem to want to shut him out of the show and i don’t understand why!

      I took that as a tribute to Nick Courtney, who died in 2011, rather than an attempt to write the character out – given he’s passed away, and he’s not Galifreyan, he’s unlikely to come back as another actor (and he played the character for something like 4 decades, it’d seem weird to recast him).
