Re: Lis Sladen

I...just...wow. Only 63. I don't think I can say anything which hasn't already been said.

Goodbye, Sarah Jane. One last time.

On second thought, I'd rather remember Sarah Jane with this (starting at 2:00).

^^ 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...
There are several ways the should could continue. Clyde and Rani have the charisma to carry a show on their own, carrying on from Sarah Jane. In retrospect, as it's apparently now known that Sladen's illness had been known by the powers that be for quite some time (listen to RTD's comments on the BBC report), that casts an entirely different light on the somewhat random - when you think about it - appearance by Katy Manning in Series 4.

Incidentally, aside from the six episodes of SJA to come, I just remembered there's also supposed to be a remastered/extended version of Downtime, the independent spin-off Lis appeared in back in 1995, coming out eventually. That's the one Sylvester McCoy reportedly filmed new scenes as the Doctor for a few months back. And I would imagine Big Finish will probably do something with their several seasons' worth of Sarah Jane audio dramas.

Re: Lis Sladen

Fucking hell, I want to throw up.

I was less shocked about Pete Postlethwaite dying after seeing him not looking too good in The Town, eighty somethings such as Leslie Nielsen and Nicholas Courtney passing away is sad but more expected, but a late middle aged Elizabeth Sladen who still seemed quite sprightly and not so old playing Sarah Jane Smith in recent years just passing away feels like it's in the same random, left-field WTF territory as Heath Ledger dying.

Re: Lis Sladen

I watched "School Reunion" today, just for her. Not that it means much ... but it was nice to see that glint in Lis' eye......

I watched "The Death of the Doctor" in tribute to her to see Lis one last time with the Doctor.

Re: Lis Sladen

If it's true that 1-4 and 11-12 of the new series were already filmed, I wonder if they possibly knew this might happen and so were preparing for it?

No one expected her to die so suddenly. Only a few people probably knew she had cancer.


The best possible scenario would have been that she completed the season while privately battling cancer.

Re: Lis Sladen

As if we needed any proof of how much she was loved, both "Elisabeth Sladen" and "Sarah Jane Smith" have been trending on twitter for some time.

Woke up to the news over here. Utterly shocked and saddened by this terrible news. Can't believe it. She was a wonderful lady, too young to go now. I don't think I am overstating it when I say she was one of Science Fiction's greatest characters.

Re: Lis Sladen

....

shit....


i would think, if anything the S4 and 5 episode will be shown and that's your lot. i doubt the BBC would be so crass as to try casting a new actress as SJS or try replacing her with another ex companion.
