To non geeks it is just another birth announcement. Actor David Tennant and his girlfriend Georgia Moffett (daughter of actor Peter Davison) are parents of their first child together.

However if you are a Doctor Who Geek you could put it this way…

The Daughter of the 5th Doctor who played the Daughter of the 10th doctor started dating the 10th doctor and has given birth to her first child, who is also the child of the Tenth Doctor.

That makes this kid, the Grandchild of the 5th doctor, the child of the 10th doctor the son of the daughter of the 10th doctor who played the daughter of the 10th doctor making kid the grandchild of the 10th doctor as well as the child of the 10th doctor who is of course the same person as the 5th doctor. And of course since the Doctor kid’s mother is the doctor’s daughter that makes the kid the sister of the doctor’s daughter since he is the doctor’s kid who is also his mother. And of course since she the 5th doctors daughter went to school with the 6th doctor’s daughter we could make it sound even more complicated than this if we wanted to.

Yeah I know it doesn’t mean anything but all I could think of when I heard about it was that old song, I’m my own Grandpa.

…the new season of Doctor Who will still be premiering in only one month!

One of the most important figures in the history of the Dr. Who series was the Character of the Brigadier. Nicholas Courtney played the character since 1968 both on TV and in the Big Finish audios the last 60’s and had previously appeared in the series with the first Doctor as a different character.

Late last year he shot a piece for the DVD version of the Doctor who movie.

Last Week Nicholas Courtney died at the age of 81. Despite decades of acting before being cast in Doctor for millions around the world, he will always be the Brigadier, the ultimate stoic Brit, courageous in the face of danger, unwavering in his loyalty and devoted to his duty. As Tom Baker said:

‘Of all the characters in Doctor Who there is no doubt he was the most loved by the fans for his wonderful portrayal of the rather pompous Brigadier,’

and he continued having visited him just before his death:

‘The lady in charge said he was very stoical. And indeed he was. It was so distressing to see him so weak and yet so strong in resignation. My jokes were received with a generous effort from Nick to smile.’

Stoical , weak yet strong in resignation. That sounds just like the Brig.

Nicholas Courtney will be missed, but in video audio and fiction Brigadier Alister Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart will live forever.
