First of all: Trevor Baxter, aka Professor George Litefoot of Jago & Litefoot, passed away today.

I fell in love with the character when I was a kid.

My mother held him up as an example of truly good manners. There's a great moment in Talons of Weng-Chiang when he's sharing his table with Leela, and she picks up a joint of meat with her hands and bites into it like a barbarian. There's a split second of horror in his face, but he blinks, hides it, and instead of shaming his guest resolutely puts down his knife and fork and follows suit, picking up his own meat with his hands. Because the polite thing is to make guests feel welcome.

I don't know if that was in the script or Trevor Baxter improvving, but Litefoot was clearly very close to his heart, and he's had a ball the last nine years recording thirteen series!!! of Jago and Litefoot in his old age. Big Finish has a nice bio and tributes to him from fellow actors here.

Also, if you haven't heard it, the March Short Trip was the Tenth Doctor stopping by to visit Prof. Litefoot, and the trailer contains a truly moving clip that captures the essence of both Litefoot and the Doctor. It's quick; give a listen. It's probably the last thing Baxter ever recorded.

I drew a portrait of him (above) for my daily practice. I've been posting 1 hour sketches for about a week now, mostly Doctor Who companions.

As for the big news...
