Sad news, Elizabeth Sladen dies

Sad news today, Doctor Who actress Elizabeth Sladen who played Sarah Jane Smith has died aged just 63. Sarah Jane Smith was the Doctor’s companion in the 1970s playing opposite both Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker; however she came back more recently to play opposite David Tennant and in new spin off series, the Sarah Jane Adventures she also got to meet Matt Smith’s Doctor.

My own memories of Sarah Jane Smith are from the Genesis of the Daleks where she meets Davros and encounters the Daleks.

Sad news indeed today and my sympathies go out to her family.
