Very, very sad day. Surprised to hear - I'm sure we were hoping for many more years with her around to entertain.

RIP

Re: Lis Sladen

Wow. Didn't see this coming at all. She seemed pretty young and vibrant still. Has anyone given a cause of death?

Re: Lis Sladen

Man, I'm kind of shocked.

I first came to know of 'Sarah Jane Smith' through watching School Reunion, but became a fan of the character rather quickly and have enjoyed the SJA series thus far.

Sad news, especially since no one seemed to have known publically that she was ill.

Rest in Peace, Elisabeth Sladen.

Yes, some reports mentioned she died of cancer. Sometimes, this disease can progress very quickly. But it's also possible she had been struggling with it for a while without the public knowing.

Certainly Frazer Hines battled cancer for years and never revealed this until a decade later. But there's also been cases of people feeling fine, then feeling a bit ill, getting diagnosed, and dying within a week. Unless her family explains what happened, it's all guesswork.

I just remembered she'd written an autobiography that was scheduled for publication this summer. I'll have to get that.

This is such sad and unexpected news to wake up to. I do wish her family and friens condolences and best wishes.

Woah, I had no idea she was ill! She was still making her show, wasn't she? Very sad, shocking news.

This sort of makes "Death of the Doctor" more poignant

This literally came out of the blue. No rumor or mumblings of cancer. Nothing.

At least we knew Nicholas Courtney was sick

Re: Lis Sladen

I can't begin to describe how deeply shocked and upset I am by this very tragic news. God, I almost feel like crying.


It's weird, I was only watching K-9 & Company and series 3 of SJA earlier today....

Re: Lis Sladen

This is awful. Elisabeth Sladen was a delightful actress, and she managed to bring real gravity to the role of Sarah Jane. It's awful for her, for her family and loved ones, and for the cast and crew of The Sarah Jane Adventures and her young fans.

Re: Lis Sladen

I have to say I'm absolutely gutted by this news... She was my first companion and I had a deep crush on her as a youngster...

Can't believe this is true. So, so sad...

I was fully expecting this to be another false tabloid rumor upon clicking on the thread. I have to say, I really wish it was. This is both shocking and sad.

May Lis Sladen's adventures continue on a grander plane.
