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.
If Ian and Barbera can live long after the actors have passed than so can Sarah Jane.
William Russell is still alive.

She's not dead, she's merely fighting evil on a higher plane of existence.

And that's what I chose to believe.

Re: Lis Sladen

^^ I don't know, I do have to agree that its probably best to let the show go after these last episodes are shown.

Doesn't mean I wouldn't love seeing Rani, Clyde and the others again someday. If only there were some mysterious traveller who could wisk them off to new adventures...

read this elsewhere:

Elisabeth Sladen didn't die...she couldn't have. She's just traveling with The Doctor again. That's all.
It brought a tear to my eye.

Re: Lis Sladen

Very sad news. Elisabeth Sladen and Tom Baker were the first characters I watched on Dr. Who in the early 1980's on PBS. I was shocked when she left the show not knowing companions were always leaving the Doctor.
Then I was floored when Tom Baker's Doctor regenerated into Peter Davison's Doctor having never seen that. Then the happy surprise of Ms. Sladen returning for the Five Doctors and the rest is history.

R.I.P. Ms. Sladen, and thank you for the memories.

Re: Lis Sladen

The loss is twice as painful when some of the whimsy and charm of Doctor Who doesn't rub off on the real world and spare one of the dearest of the most optimistic franchise in entertainment.

I sure hope she had fun and knew how much she was loved for all the good things she brought to the show. Well done, Ms. Sladen!

Wow, so shocking. I left work sick today, and just logged on to the computer. Saw the Lis Sladen thread and wondered, hm... what's this? Then I opened it and was shocked at what I was reading. She seemed so young and vibrant last time I saw an episode of Sarah Jane. Truly, terribly sad news

They could always join K9 on a new, live action K9 Adventures. Or even the animated one.

Re: Lis Sladen

I just learned of Elisabeth’s death a few minutes ago, and like all of you I am in complete shock. As someone else already commented, I don’t think I’ve ever been hit quite as hard by the news of an actor’s death as I am right now…partially because of who it is and partially because the news was so out of the blue. Her character of Sarah Jane has for the past 30+ years been one of my all-time favorite Doctor Who characters. I was so pleased and excited when RTD brought her back for "School Reunion" and subsequently gave her her own spin-off series. Unlike some, I have enjoyed “The Sarah Jane Adventures” almost as much as “Doctor Who” itself, and way more then “Torchwood.” Elisabeth was a great actress and a charming and beautiful woman both inside and out, without whom neither Doctor Who nor indeed the world will ever be quite the same again.

I want to extend my condolences to her husband, children and all of her friends and coworkers at the BBC who have known and worked with her for so many years. Farewell, Elisabeth, you will be sorely missed!
