Elisabeth Sladen 1946-2011

Doctor Who actress Elisabeth Sladen has died of cancer at the age of 63, the BBC has confirmed.

I just wanted to say how shocked and saddened the team are by this terrible news. Elisabeth Sladen was a unique individual who lit up Doctor Who and spanned generations.

Sarah Jane was without doubt one of the finest companions and will always hold a special place in my heart. There will never be another like her and Lis will be terribly missed.

Our thoughts are with Lis's friends and family at this difficult time.

  1. I was just setling down to go to bed last night and pulled up page 501 on Ceefax to see what was going on in the entertainment world.

    I was not prepared for the headline on page 502, Dr Who Star Elisabeth Sladen Dies.

    Coming weeks just after the death of Nicholas Courtney, I was really upset to see another Doctor Who legend sadly pass away.

    Sarah Jane was possibly one of the best loved companions of all time in Doctor Who, and I'm glad she had a chance to play the character agsin in The Sarah Jane Adventures, which sadly will probably be cancelled now.

    Farewell Lis, you played opposite two of the best Doctor's in the show and your legacy will never be forgotten.
