Today is the first anniversary of Nicholas Courtney leaving us, which is still sort of hard to believe.
So raise a glass, and consider the effect of Mr Courtney, and of Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart and his people at UNIT, on life, the Whoniverse and everything.
Uses for UNIT in a game are plentiful, from PCs and whole PC groups, to steadfast allies. There are plentiful ways to get in trouble with them as well, but misunderstandings can generally be ironed out and alliances forged in the face of danger. So consider having them look in on your next modern adventure. The exasperated tutting of a UNIT leader, with a hint of a smile, is greater praise than the adulation of millions.
