I'd rather see Liz Shaw.

Jo Grant could never replace Sarah Jane. Neither could any other ex-companion. Maybe in several years time, they could do something focusing on other companions from the classic series....but not now. Not like this.

maybe so, but it would be alot easier to write it with Jo and her grand son, as they have a pre exisiting relationship.

Funny if there was a proper funeral, and the Doctor was to show up, I could see him suggesting it to Jo.

As I said above, its very easy to do that, it just may not be the right thing to do.

Do not replace Sarah Jane with Jo, Liz, or anyone else.

for what its worth whilst I dont support the idea fully, dont forget the last series finale, had the theme of Sarah Jane stepping down when she was no longer able to do the job, and letting someone else take over.

True she wasnt in full control of her mind at the time, but the themes are there, and I do believe Sarah Jane would do that, when the day actually came.

Re: Lis Sladen

I was utterly shocked earlier today when I read that she died. I literally gasped.

Only 63.

Re: Lis Sladen

Damn. I know it's already been said, but this really was unexpected. I had not heard of her illness, and she still looked good as recently as last season of SJA. And at 63, she could have potentially lived quite a while longer. Really not expecting this at all.

Although I was first introduced to Sarah Jane through School Reunion, I have over the course of my viewings of classic Who seen many of her stories with Tom Baker and even a few with Pertwee. I've never really watched SJA aside from the episodes David Tennant and Matt Smith were in, but it did seem a decent enough show.

Sarah Jane is perhaps the closest thing we have to a companion to multiple Doctors. Proper companion of the Third and Fourth Doctors, guest appearance with the Fifth, recurring appearances with the Tenth, and an appearance with the Eleventh. I was hoping she'd have a few more appearances with the Eleventh, even if it was just something like another team-up with a bunch of former companions ala The Stolen Earth/Journey's End, but sadly that's out of the question now.

RIP

Re: Lis Sladen

Oh man, like probably most classic Who fans, she was always my favorite, so I really don't know what to say. The strangest thing was that shes always been so youthful and energetic for a woman her age. She did an amazing job hiding her illness. I guess she just didn't want to upset the fans.

I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but I'm wondering if the title of the final story last season was some sort of subtle hint from her or the showrunners? Wierd coincidence otherwise.

And yes, put me down for thinking they should show those final stories. I can't think of any actor who wouldn't want their work shown. But I don't want to see the character killed off. Liz may no longer be with us, but I'd like to hope Sarah will still be out there for a good long time, fighting the good fight.
