Watch Colin Baker get "EnPrezzed"!

Colin has happily agreed that footage of his surprise appearance on Sunday can go on You Tube. The quality is not great (it was taken from the very back of the auditorium on a not particularly modern Canon Ixus), and the light tones of his jacket cause some flare, but the sound is good and it shows just what a great response he received on Sunday.

Ciao

As the final CT of my tenure as Editor is now dropping through letterboxes, I just wanted to say thanks and farewell - CTwise anyway!

I hope you enjoyed reading the 36 issues that I've had the pleasure of producing and, like you, I'm looking forward to seeing what Grant Bull is going to bring us. I have no doubt that it will be excellent.

With very best wishes,

Tony

It was 30 years ago today..........

.......that Tom Baker regenerated into Peter Davison. I find that extremely scary!

"Chap with Wings"

Martin Holmes has sent us this lovely poem.

CHAP WITH WINGS (FOR MR COURTNEY)

Not that I ever met you
But I hear you were a gent
A fine, upstanding gentle man,
And Honorary President.

A known face on the T.V.
With a life of many parts
Then a troubled space agent
Brought you closer to our hearts

But the one I most remember
Carved in my youthful mind

Nicholas Courtney - More of your thoughts

Ed Brady: It's very sad to have learned the news of Nicholas Courtney's passing. His character of the Brigadier was a good friend of the Doctor and, as an actor, he was a good friend of Doctor Who the programme and its many loyal followers.

Nicholas Courtney - Your thoughts & tributes

Alan Stevens: I first met Nick Courtney at a DWAS convention in 1983 called Interface 3, an event themed around the Jon Pertwee era of Doctor Who.
