I apologise immediately, as I know this is designed for "Questions to Tom", and not letters/statements, as such.
However, I just wanted to express my deepest condolences to you - and all in the 'Dr. Who family' - on the loss of your dear friend, Nicholas Courtney.
You will know, sir, just how universally loved he was by the fans, and he will be greatly missed by all.
Thank you so much for the lovely message you posted today; your description of his stoical nature brought a lump to the throat and tears to the eyes.
My very best wishes to you, Tom, at this sad time. Know, please, that Nick and all his friends/family are in my thoughts today, and the thoughts of the entire 'Dr. Who' fan community.
All fondest regards.
