The Brig is back! Actor Nicholas Courtney, who first appeared in Doctor Who in 1968, is returning as Brigadier Sir Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart in The Sarah Jane Adventures. DWM caught up with Nick and asked him about his latest call to action

So, how does Lethbridge-Stewart pop up in Sarah Jane's world again? "Well, Sarah Jane needs some help, yes. She comes to see me and when she tells me where she wants to go, my face falls. But we manage!" Nick laughs heartily. "We have a lovely moment. According to the producer, it works very well when Sarah comes into the room, and we're meeting again. Lis has a line, `I'm going to see an old friend about this,` and the next shot is her coming into my house..."
