Do you think they'll still screen what they managed to shoot of Series 5?

Probably; I hadn't seen Series 4 so I don't know if it ended on a cliffhanger, but SJA stories tend to be stand-alones so if they managed to complete a couple of storylines I can't see why they wouldn't air them.

All that said, I saw one blog suggest no Series 5 episodes were made because of her illness, but that's not what I recall reading in the filming reports. We'll hear fairly soon. If they didn't end up filming any Series 5 episodes after all, the title of the Series 4 finale will be even more poignant.

AIUI three episodes were shot, then filming pushed back until May...

Watching Pyramids of Mars now for some random SJS goodness (and the late Michael Sheard as well, who I knew better)

Re: Lis Sladen

I realise this might sound a bit cruel to some, but part of me hopes that if they had filmed any Series 5 episodes, they don't show them. It would just be too painful to watch, knowing she died so shortly after.

Sarah Jane was my favorite companion and it was because of how Liz played as being so human. She had been sick ofr while but she remained a beautiful woman.

I just don't know what to do now. This is terrible. And she was still doing so much in the Who-verse.

The BBC isn't going to throw the money they spent on the SJA episodes down the drain like that, not in this time of austerity and budget cutbacks. The BBC broadcast the final season of Father Ted, even though Dermot Morgan died the day after filming the final episode, after all. I don't see anything insensitive about an autumn broadcast of the episodes.
