A Companion To The Doctor’s Companions: The Brigadier | Anglophenia
Learn more about Kate Stewart’s dad, the Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart:

The Brig is the only companion to have seen active service with the First Doctor (once he’d been brought back by the Time Lords) the Second Doctor, the Third Doctor, the Fourth Doctor, the Fifth Doctor, the Seventh Doctor and be mentioned fondly by the Tenth Doctor too.  AND he made an appearance in the Sarah Jane Adventures, and would have even met the Tenth Doctor in an episode called Sarah Jane’s Wedding, had Nicholas Courtney not been too poorly to take part.  Which is more than you can say for Turlough.
So what is it about the Brigadier which made him so special? Well it all started with the Second Doctor and some yetis in the London Underground. The Brigadier, with his brace of Scottish names – Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart indeed – is essentially a more authoritative, less boisterous Jamie. His job is to prevent the Doctor from gadding about, and focus on the job in hand. He is neither charmed nor moved by the Doctor’s eccentricities, and he absolutely insists on getting the job done….
