RIP Elisabeth Sladen

Post by HStorm » Wed Apr 20, 2011 6:36 am

The sad news of the death of Elisabeth Sladen, AKA Sarah-Jane Smith of course, was released last night on the BBC website. :'(

One of the most loved regulars of Dr Who in the 1970's, she will be deeply missed by modern fans of the series as much as by long-time aficionados.

Although I was sad she died - and too young to die, or seemed so anyway - I'm not sure there was much more they could do with the character. I know some people won't agree with me, and admittedly I've only ever seen one episode of The Sarah Jane Adventures so I can't give a fair judgement really. But I wasn't partiuclarly expecting to see her back in Doctor Who.

Nevertheless, very sad to see her go, and she left a terrific legacy with the Doctors she accompanied. One of the best. Farewell, Elisabeth.
