Ross Brimmicombe-Wood was a Scottish career soldier and strong British nationalist.
Years later, as a colonel, he was the commanding officer of the UK branch of UNIT, Brigadier Bambera having left sometime after 2001. (AUDIO: Animal) Subordinate Emily Chaudhry considered him a friend; he used to call her "the proper English rose" until she drank him under the table. (AUDIO: The Longest Night) He was believed to have been abducted while escorting alien cargo across the country in 2005. (AUDIO: Time Heals)
In reality, he was the commanding officer and a double agent for the ICIS. He had faked his own kidnapping to create chaos in UNIT. He was involved in attempts to bring down the British government for reasons of ultra-nationalism, and was imprisoned for his actions. (AUDIO: The Wasting)

Behind the scenes edit
"The Longest Night" implies a near future setting but due to the events of the revived TV series, Brimmicombe-Wood's appearances would have to take place roughly in 2005 (when they occured).
The character had originally appeared in Sympathy for the Devil, an alternate universe story from the Doctor Who Unbound series. That version of the character had been a loyal soldier, allowing the UNIT audio series to play off the fact the audience already knew him and wouldn't expect him to be an antagonist.
Both versions of Brimmicombe Wood are colonels, even though one is colonel is 1997 and the other in the 21st century.
