List of UNIT personnel


List of UNIT personnel

UNIT stands for UNified Intelligence Taskforce, (formerly it stood for United Nations Intelligence Taskforce), a fictional entity in the Doctor Who universe.

UNIT first appeared in the Second Doctor serial The Invasion, (1968), although Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart had appeared earlier in The Web of Fear (1968), as a military Colonel. UNIT went on to feature in many Third Doctor stories, as the Doctor was exiled to Earth in Spearhead from Space (1970), and became UNIT's Scientific Advisor following the Auton attack. The Doctor would maintain this post in subsequent incarnations. UNIT is a large organisation and many personnel have featured in Doctor Who over the years. Some lead, supporting and recurring characters have worked for or have been affiliated with the organisation.

Portrayed by Angela Bruce

Brigadier Winifred Bambera, played by Angela Bruce, appeared in the Seventh Doctor serial Battlefield (1989) as UNIT's commanding officer. She worked alongside the Seventh Doctor, Ace (whom the Doctor had initially passed off as UNIT's former Scientific Advisor, Liz Shaw, with Liz's old security pass), and Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart (pulled out of retirement for the duration of the crisis), in defeating the extra-dimensional forces of Morgaine and Mordred in Carbury. She was in command during the mid-1990s and was tasked with transporting a nuclear missile across Britain. Bambera is shown able to fight with weapons and in hand-to-hand combat. She took a no-nonsense, by-the-book approach to command that warranted the respect of those under her. Major Husak and Sergeant Zbrigniev reported directly to her. She uses the word "shame" as an expletive.

Bambera appears several times in the Virgin New Adventures novels, notably in Head Games and The Dying Days. It is revealed that she marries Ancelyn, the Arthurian knight from Battlefield, and that the couple have twins. She is mentioned as having served as a Colonel under Brigadier Crichton in the noveliastion of Downtime. Her later life is seen in the Prelude to Transit (where she holds the rank of General) and the short story Excalibur of Mars in the Bernice Summerfield anthology Present Danger.

In the IDW comic The Forgotten, the Ninth Doctor used the name "Brigadier Bambera" as an alias when visiting World War I.

She was killed alongside her colleagues, fellow experts, by the Slitheen, electrocuted by devices planted on their name tags. Only the Doctor survives. Her name, 'Frost', is only given on her name tag and it has led to fan speculation that it is derived from character Muriel Frost, featured in the comic strip in Doctor Who Magazine. This argument is fuelled by earlier drafts of the episode's script that had the Doctor refer to her directly as "Muriel Frost". However, in this episode, she is dressed in US military uniform. According to the UNIT website set up by the BBC, she was commander of the Geneva EVA Team, although the canonicity of this is unclear.

Colonel Mace

Doctor Who character
Colonel A. Mace
Affiliated UNIT
Species Human
Home planet Earth
Home era 21st century
Appears in "The Sontaran Stratagem" / "The Poison Sky"
Portrayed by Rupert Holliday-Evans

Colonel Mace is the commanding officer of a large contingent of UNIT (the Unified Intelligence Taskforce) in 2009. Mace first appeared in "The Sontaran Stratagem" / "The Poison Sky" (2008). He originally seemed to view the Doctor as a superior officer, saluting him and taking his orders; however, the two clashed and Mace began to be irritated by the Doctor's manner and repeated casual dismissals of him and UNIT, while simultaneously irritating the Doctor through his overtly militaristic manner and insistence on a combat solution to the situation brought on by the Sontarans (Although both agreed that the presence of 'Sir Alistair' would be of great assistance at this time).

Despite repeatedly being told UNIT could not face the Sontarans, he organised the troops for an assault on a Sontaran position, telling the Doctor he wasn't listening any more, and rallied the troops with a speech about how they would show "every passing alien with an axe to grind" to not mock them and see "what the human race is capable of". He even manages to impress the Doctor by having the Valiant clear away the poison gas surrounding the factory. He then successfully leads the recapture of the area, managing to personally kill the Sontaran second-in-command, Commander Skorr.

Although Colonel Mace's first name was never mentioned on screen, the letter initial of A can be seen on the I.D. Card displayed on his uniform. On Page 129 of the reference book The Time Traveller's Almanac, it says that the A stands for Alan.

In the Torchwood serial Children of Earth, John Frobisher and Colonel Oduya discuss Mace's posting in Vancouver. However, as this conversation is a swift change of subject to avoid classified information being heard by Lois Habiba, it is not clear if there is any truth in it.

Magambo returned in the 2009 episode "Planet of the Dead", this time on non-parallel Earth, as a senior officer of a UNIT patrol. She was leading a team of UNIT soldiers and Doctor Malcolm Taylor who were investigating a wormhole which was, unbeknownst to them, created by the deadly Swarm. Taylor and Magambo aided the Doctor's attempt to return to planet Earth from the Earth side of the wormhole, however when the Doctor refused to give full details of the impending Swarm she considered shutting the wormhole down to save the planet. Malcolm refused to shut the wormhole without the Doctor coming back through and resisted even under the threat of Magambo shooting him. Yet the Doctor was able to come back through with the aid of the modified 200 Bus and Magambo led her troops in destroying the three Swarm aliens that came through the wormhole before its closure. After thanking the Doctor and bringing his TARDIS back to him (apparently it had been found in the gardens of Buckingham Palace), she commented on having to clear up the mess, to which the Doctor refused to help in the paperwork.
