It's been announced that actress Elisabeth Sladen has passed away.. The Dr Who Star was best known as 'Sarah Jane Smith' in the cult series, and spin off Sarah Jane Adventures. She appeared alongside Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker - and had reprised her role many times during the 80's and 90's, in 2006 she appeared opposite David Tennant in an episode called "School Reunion"..


RIP...

Shouldn't this be on the 'In Memorium' section?

I've never heard of her but there again I can't stand science fiction

She was a fine actress - many kids will recognise her immediately from the Sarah Jane Adventures in which she was just great.

By the way Ruddles, Doctor Who isn't Sci Fi - it's comedy!

Well Dr Who is certainly not my idea of comedy Colin

I always hated it ever since the 1960s

I just can't see what is remotely appealing about it

Escapism is just not my thing - I prefer reality - give me a good old political discussion and then we're cooking on gas Very Happy

I loved it in the 1960s - but as soon as the BBC moved BBC1 over to colour production in 1969 I lost interest.

Today it's just too sophisticated - but it does have a sense of humour. David Tennant was a fantastic Doctor who played the whole thing tongue-in-cheek, and I can see why it's such a massive money-spinner for the corporation.

Anyhow, back on topic, it's sad to see Elizabeth Sladen passing away at such a time in her life - she really was a good actress. Quite cute when she first appeared in Doctor Who back in 1973! Smile

Very sad to learn this, and have got quite emotional reading all the tributes. Such rotten timing - only just getting over the death of The Brigadier (Nicholas Courteney) and now Sarah Jane's gone just days before the new series.

Devastating. Her own series, Sarah Jane Adventures, was a cracker and I'm sure the next (final?) series will be very emotional.

Well, after all that, good to return to normality with the usual "I hate this" comment in a thread on this forum.

Ian, I was talking about the programme not the person - as I said I don't know her but obviously it's always sad when people die at a fairly young age

It doesn't make me like the programme any more though

I don't care for Dr Who and I've never even heard of the other one - until now

By the way just to make things clear I originally commented about the programme rather than the deceased because Mark put this item in the 'Television' category and not the 'In Memorium' one which is where it should have been if it was intended to elicit tributes to the deceased rather than general comments about the programme

I'm sorry if some people didn't like it but I would have thought that since John has gone to the trouble of creating a dedicated thread at the suggestion of lots of members here it's rather surprising if people don't use it and I assumed there must be a reason Confused
