    "Chap With The Wings: Five Rounds, Rapid!"

    Cubicle 7's Defending the Earth: The UNIT Sourcebook for Doctor Who is available to preorder now. PDFs will go out to pre-orderers within the week.

    Front and centre, soldier! You're part of UNIT now, the Unified Intelligence Taskforce. We are the Earth's best defence against the myriad alien forces who would try to subjugate and conquer our planet.



    It's not an easy job, and even those recruited for their scientific knowledge can find themselves on the front lines of combat against almost unstoppable foes. We will protect humanity from extraterrestrial terrors or die trying.

    Defending the Earth is a 160 page full colour sourcebook for the Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space roleplaying game. Within, you’ll will find:


    • The history of UNIT
    • Rules for creating UNIT characters, including new Traits and Areas of Expertise
    • Expanded firearms and combat rules, including mass combat and skirmish rules
    • Details on major UNIT personnel, including the legendary Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart
    • Two new adventures

    and more…

    The Brigadier's UNIT was the United Nations Intelligence Taskforce. Get off my lawn, you young whipersnappers!
    Scrag 'em all and let the gods sort 'em out!

    The actual United Nations requested that the show stop using its name, so the change to "Unified" was made.

    You would think the U.N. would have reacted the way the U.S. Air Force did to the Stargate franchise -- "You want to portray us as the brave defenders of the planet against threats from the stars? How can we help?" -- but that does not seem to be the way it happened.

    UNIT is still allowed to operate under 'UN authority', they just can't use the name.

    That was confirmed in the recent 'Kate Stewart' episode

    PCs: "Umm, what?"
    Otyugh: "Do you have poop?"

    Yeah, I thought that was pretty dumb of them. Oh well...

    (And, of course, he did actually appear in some of the newer episodes. With Sarah Jane Smith, no less! Miss them both.)

    That was the Sarah Jane Adventures, not Doctor Who.
