I just heard that she's died, aged 63, from cancer.
Can scarcely believe it.

I can't believe it, so sad to hear. it is such a shock, she was of the best Dr Who companions ever. she will be missed.

That's a shocker.

Oh god, what a loss; to her family, friends and the fan community. Too soon, far, far too soon.

Have just read about this on the BBC website - awful news.
A great actress, both in Doctor Who and the Sarah Jane Adventures.
Will be sadly missed by all.

Very sad news, she will be missed by both Doctor Who fans of all ages and Sarah Jane fans

A wonderful actress and excellent, modest, beautiful assistant to the Doctor.
R.I.P Elisabeth aka Sarah Jane Smith, she will be missed, but her beauty and talent will always be around to be enjoyed by all generations.

I for one was unaware that she was ill. I'm assuming that she must have known she had cancer for several months at least, but decided not to publicise the fact. Instead she dealt with the condition in a quiet, dignified and unassuming manner - very much in keeping with the type of woman she appeared be.
This should serve as an example to today's so-called celebrities, most of whom would have announced it on twitter and face book and doubtless seen it as an ideal opportunity to make a reality TV show.

Horribly sad news. I fell in love with her the first time I saw her in Doctor Who. She was a wonderful actress. Unfortunetly the only other work I have seen of Lis' was as Lady Flimnap in Gulliver In Lilliput. It was great to see her in a part so different from Sarah. Of course she was just as great. This lady will be missed.

Not sure if this is the right place for this, but Elisabeth Sladen passed away yesterday. She had been fighting cancer. The best companion of all. Will be missed by all the fans.

Along with Madeline Smith, Elizabeth was one of my first crushes. I always hoped she would return to Dr. Who, as I felt her parting scene all those years ago left her character open. I was right.
Well I guess she will be with Jon Pertwee, and the other doctors who have passed on.
God Rest Her Lovely and Beautiful Soul
And my heart felt sympathies to her husband of so many many years. It can be all to easy to forget the loved ones.

I heard the news with great sorrow, and I'll regret her. Goodbye Sarah Jane and be forever with our lost Doctors and the Brigadier !

Shocked to hear the news - taken from us far, far too young.
04-20-2011, 05:20 PM
As I have said on another thread, sad news - taken from us far, far too young.

Elisabeth was the Doctors assistant when I first tuned in as a kid. She was by far the most likeable companion unlike some of the more recent one's who have a heck of a lot to live up to. I shed a few tears yesterday I am not ashamed to admit it. Bless you Elisabeth. You will be very sorely missed. I have Planet of the Spiders waiting to be watched and just can't bring myself to put it on yet.
