Elisabeth Sladen died last week on April 19, 2011.
If you are a Doctor Who fan, you know Elisabeth as Sarah Jane Smith, companion to doctor's three and four, a recurring character with the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant), and star of the Sarah Jane Adventures series.
I remember watching her with the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) when I was in college. It was such a treat to see her (and K-9) in the revival series with the Tenth Doctor in 2006.
I got my daughter so hooked on Doctor Who, that she watched many of the old episodes and found the Sarah Jane Adventures series online. When the Sarah Jane Adventures came to the SciFi channel, we TiVo'ed it.
Only the first series was broadcast in the US, but I understand that the second series is available on DVD. (To my family: Mother's Day is coming up … hint hint.)
Goodbye Sarah Jane …
