Re: Lis Sladen

It's just been reported on BBC news so you would think they would check it was definite.

Very sad news - a massive shock as well.

It's not (yet) on the BBC website, IMDB or wikipedia. I do hope it turns out to be one of those nasty false rumours.

Other than this thread, and a six pager on the Galifrey boards I can't find anything. Just checked the BBC site and did a Google news search and still nothing yet.

It's the lead story on BBC news right now - it has happened sadly.

^ Yes, I see it now on BBC news 24 and it's coming up as breaking news on the website. Crap.

RIP Sarah Jane.

Re: Lis Sladen

seeing the ticker along the BBC News channel now.

Well, that sucks. Probably worse for the kids who watch SJA (which will be buggered now, with season 5 not yet finished filming)

Re: Lis Sladen

Doctor Who Magazine has confirmed it to the Doctor Who News Page.

http://www.doctorwhonews.net/2011/04...aden-1948.html

They don't report this kind of rumor.

Incredibly sad. I wonder if illness was the reason part of Season 5 was filmed at the end of Season 4 last year?

The final episode of Season 4, and the last episode to air in her lifetime, was titled "Goodbye, Sarah Jane Smith", too.

I will be very surprised if they don't do a dedication on Doctor Who, though it's probably too late for them to add anything to this weekend's episode, but you never know.

RIP

Alex

Omigod...first the Brig, and now Sarah Jane? That just really hit me close to home as they were the first Doctor Who companions I really ever knew.

Oh, man...

Yeah, I'm waiting for the DVD of Planet of the Spiders. It will be a different viewing experience now. Definetely a hit close to home.
This is so sudden, I expected to see a new season of SJA soon and not hear of Lis Sladen's death.

Re: Lis Sladen

Absolutely shocked and saddened by this news! Loved her since I was a kid. My 6 year old nephew just rang me up as he saw it on the news (he broke the news to me), and told me that she was going to heaven. He thought that the Doctor might be able to go and get her back though... he didn't understand and thought it was part of the series

There will be at least a partial 5th season, as several episodes were filmed at the end of the 4th last year. How the BBC handles it is anyone's guess.
