RIP Elisabeth Sladen

Sad news today, actress Elisabeth Sladen, best known for her role in Doctor Who has died. Elisabeth Sladen played the fans most favorite Companion, Miss Sarah Jane Smith. She appeared in 81 episodes of the classic "Doctor Who" series (working with both Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker).

I grew up with her as Tom Baker's Companion and fell in love with her then. When she returned for a short time on the new version of Doctor Who with David Tennant  I was ecstatic. She is so well loved and popular that they did a spin off series called The Sarah Jane Adventures, which was a lot of fun. It was great seeing that after 30+ years she could pick that character back up and have people fall in love with her all over again.

She was only 63 years old.. far to young to have left us. I'm just a fan and I'm heart broken at the loss of this beautiful woman. My heartfelt sympathies go out to those who knew her best.. her friends and loved one. May she rest in piece. Elisabeth Sladen and her iconic character Miss Sarah Jane Smith will live forever in our hearts.

  1. That is the only Dr Who timeframe that kept my interest. 63 is way to young to go!
