The Death Of Elisabeth Sladen

on Thursday, April 21, 2011

On Tuesday, April 19th 2011, news was announced that "Doctor Who" star, Elisabeth Sladen had died of cancer. She played The Third and Fourth Doctors Companion, Sarah Jane Smith, from 1973-1976. She also appeared in various other things in the "WHO Universe" through the 1980's.
She then returned in 2006, alongside David Tennant's Tenth Doctor. After that, she got her own spin-off show, "The Sarah Jane Adventures" for CBBC. She recently got a chance to star alongside Matt Smith's Eleventh Doctor, when he guest-starred in her show.
She will be sadly missed. She was one of my favourite companions, definitely in my top five favourite. It was such a shocker when I found out about her death. She was battling cancer for a while now, but no one really knew about it, especially the fans.

Elisabeth Sladen (1948-2011).
