Elisabeth Sladen 1948 - 2011

Elisabeth Sladen has passed today at the age of 63.

For those of you not in the know she played the character Sarah Jane Smith, companion to two different Doctors in Doctor Who.


Sarah Jane was one of my favorite companions and I loved seeing her come back in the new Who series with David Tennent and then in the Sarah Jane Adventures.   There was a time in my life that I seriously thought that if I even had a daughter I'd name her Sarah Jane.  Mostly cause I didn't want anyone picking on Romanadvoratrelundar Brannan.

She will be missed.

Sorry to hear that. Whisk I have recently found Dr. Who and have been enjoying it. Whisk was just saying how pretty Sarah Jane is the other day. I couldn't agree more.

Four Doctors. Even though her association with them was only occasional, Ten and Eleven count, IMHO. Especially Ten, with whom she developed a real rapport.

She was always my favorite companion. I had the biggest crush on her as a kid.

I know, very sad news. I had not even know she was sick.
