“I’m afraid Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart passed away a few months ago,” the nurse tells the Doctor. “It was very peaceful. Talked a lot about you, if that’s any comfort. Always made us pour an extra brandy in case you came round one of these days.”
Can we all just take a moment…
This was sweet. And it feels appropriate to pay tribute to the Brig in an episode which featured everyone wearing eyepatches.

Yeah, it is - they now have teeth, though. :(
Oh, okay, I figured this would be a thing that everyone knew already. :) Teeth, huh? Well, it’s not a huge change, so personally I’m not too worried about it.
Rewatching the trailer for Closing Time…is this a Cybermat? Oh, I do hope so. (Maybe this is a thing people already knew/spotted, but I had no idea.)
The 28-year-old actor - who plays the titular Time Lord - is very excited about the celebration of the show which will take place in November 2013 and insists he will definitely be a part of it.
And he thinks the sci-fi format of the series would be perfect for 3-D technology which could be used for a one-off special.
He told BANG Showbiz: “I love making ‘Doctor Who’ and I get to be part of that 50th year which they’ll do something mental for. You know it will be brilliant.
“I’m interested in all the 3-D stuff. If it could be filmed for 3-D TV that would be fun, especially with ‘Doctor Who’, but it’s very expensive. I don’t know how they’d do it.”
So…Dimensions in Time: The Sequel then?
Remember Adric, Doctor?
HE WAS 15 AND HE DIED AND YOU HAVEN’T THOUGHT ABOUT HIM SINCE THE 80S
remember turlough? you left him on his home planet where he was a criminal to likely be executed…
Wait, did the Doctor want to feel guilty? I thought he wanted to see someone that he liked and was annoyed that the TARDIS kept showing him people he felt guilty about.
I can understand why people are unhappy about the exclusion of the old companions - I feel the same way to some extent. I would have loved to see certain companions there. But looking at this from a Doylist point of view, it makes much more sense to have a select group of people that a) everyone in the audience will recognize and b) where there’s a good cut-off point, rather than randomly selecting a few from the old series along with the new.
And let’s face it - if everyone the Doctor feels guilty about had made an appearance, he would have been dead before the first half had finished showing up. Oh, Doctor.
(Maybe they could have flipped through them all really quickly, like in that Meanwhile in the TARDIS scene? IDK.)
