Brigadier Sir Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, generally referred to simply as the Brigadier, is one of the founders of UNIT (United Nations Intelligence Taskforce), an international organization that defends Earth from alien threats, and serves as commander of the British contingent.
Early life and military career Edit
Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart was born in 1930 of Scottish descent. An only child, he was raised in Simla, India. He was sent to an English prep school. He was pressurised strongly by his namesake grandfather Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart to join the military.
He began his military career around 1953 and attended Sandhurst Military Academy with Major General Rutlidge.
He later joined the Scots Guards and was stationed for a time at Aldgate.
He first encountered the Second Doctor, as a colonel commanding a British Army detachment sent to investigate the Yeti in the London Underground. By 1968, he had been promoted to Brigadier and was working with UNIT. When the Doctor was forcibly regenerated and exiled to Earth, Lethbridge-Stewart gave him a position as UNIT's scientific advisor after he helped defeat the Auton invasion. Other military members of UNIT included Captain Mike Yates, Sergeant Benton and Royal Navy Lieutenant Harry Sullivan.
