Charles Crichton was a career officer in the British Army and UNIT.

In his early days as an officer, he was friends with the fathers of Robert Dalton and Ross Brimmicombe-Wood, Will and Archie. Coincidentally, ther sons would also become colonels in charge of UNIT. (PROSE: Project Valhalla)

As Colonel Crichton, he took over operations of UNIT in the United Kingdom following Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart's retirement. (TV: The Five Doctors) Crichton became a Brigadier between UNIT's 1983 reunion and 1995, when he was called to assist in the defeat of the Great Intelligence. (PROSE: Downtime) He had a wife and two sons, but by 2002 they had been separated for a while; he kept their photo despite this. (PROSE: Project: Valhalla)

After he departed from UNIT, he transferred to the Forge - which had a competing remit with his old employers - and was Deputy Director sometime before 2002. In 2004, Crichton retired and was assassinated by his successor, Nimrod. (PROSE: Project: Valhalla)
