On Saturday 7 January 2012, a funeral held for Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart was held in Bledoe. (PROSE: Lucy Wilson and the Bledoe Cadets) It was attended by all incarnations of the Doctor. Most of them behaved themselves, while others argued amongst themselves (PROSE: The Gift)

In the churchyard, the Bledoe Cadets stood with Alistair's family. (PROSE: Lucy Wilson and the Bledoe Cadets) During the burial, John Benton saluted the coffin and ordered UNIT soldiers to shoot "five rounds rapid" into the air. The Seventh Doctor watched the bullets disappear, while Liz Shaw buried her face in the Third Doctor's cape; Mike Yates exchanged glances with the Second Doctor; the Sixth Doctor wrapped his arm around Jo Grant, and the Ninth Doctor lowered his head as he sunk his hands into the pockets of his jacket. Then the coffin was lowered into the ground. (PROSE: Shroud of Sorrow)

Kate Stewart and Doris Lethbridge-Stewart greeted every attendee as they entered the community hall afterwards. There the Thirteenth Doctor spoke with Conall Lethbridge-Stewart. After seeing her, Bill Bishop turned to Alistair's grave and told him that the Doctor had made it, and that he'd shout her a brandy. (PROSE: Lucy Wilson and the Bledoe Cadets) From a safe distance, Lucy Wilson (the Brigadier's granddaughter) and Hobo Kostinen (having travelled back from 2018) also attended the funeral. They talked to Dame Anne Bishop. (PROSE: The Brigadier & the Bledoe Cadets)
