Start new topic to post your question. One question allowed per member per month. Ask one concise question per post, and please refrain from including information and comments irrelevant to your question.
These questions are for Tom to answer, so please do not be tempted to post a reply to someone else’s question. If you want to make a comment, post it in the Fan Community → About Tom’s Newsletters and Answers to Questions subforum.
Please do your research before asking a question and try not to ask questions which Tom has answered before – either here or in interviews such as the Doctor Who Magazine articles available on this website in the Doctor Who section. If your question is factual, please try googling it first to see if you can find the answer.
Questions about whether Tom will appear at a convention or in a particular programme or film are wasted questions as he cannot talk about any offers in advance, and the moment agreement is reached, he announces the news on his website.

Regarding the Brig

My question to you is simple enough. Do you wish, in retrospect, that you had filmed more Who stories with the late Nicholas Courtney as the Brigadier, than the two you did together before he was written out of the series?

Thanks Tom!

But I often met Nick after the series and we remained good pals and often had unrecorded adventures in The Salisbury and The George and The **** and the BBC club in Gildea Street. And sometimes we would have a drink in those places.

His memorial service was a wonderful occasion, not a seat to be had and not a bad word heard. When he was dying he mistook me for his grandmother. It did not surprise me, people are often reminded of their grandmothers when they meet me.

And at the St Michael's Hospice event a couple of weeks ago several people remarked that I looked rather like their great aunts.

Darling Nick Courtney. It would have been lovely to to have done more work with him.

Work? Fun rather.

Best wishes

from Tom.
