Re: Lis Sladen

I saw this on Twitter earlier today. I saw her name and all I could think was "I hope there is more than one Elisabeth Sladen" I clicked on her name thinking the worst but hoping the best. Unfortunately my worst fears were confirmed. It was an utter shock because none of us knew about her illness. Her life and her work will always be remembered.

I saw the news in the paper on the train this morning and got really choked up, very sad for her family.

Do not replace Sarah Jane with Jo, Liz, or anyone else.
TBH, Clyde could carry the show easily - they should carry on in some form, but not replace her. A bit like how Taggart continued with the sidekicks taking centre stage after Mark McManus died.

Obviously there is no way to go forward with the remaining episodes of series 5. It would be nice if RTD gave fans a synopsis, or even posted the scripts of the remaining episodes so fans get to see in some what what they would have otherwise missed completely..
If it was up to me, I'd show the three completed stories and have novelisations of the other three - with scripts appended as PDFs on the DVD release.

Re: Lis Sladen

I can't believe this.

I'm genuinely shocked and upset. Sarah Jane was always my favourite companion, and Elisabeth Sladen's wonderful portrayal was a huge part of the character's appeal.

What dreadful news. RIP.

Re: Lis Sladen

I'm not one to be obsessed with celebrity culture so I was surprised how upset I was when I heard the news. I don't often cry during news bulletins! Sarah Jane was a great character, voted most favourite assistant consistently for decades (she's always been my number one) and I was so pleased that somebody had the common sense to bring her character back. My thoughts go out to her friends and family.

Re: Lis Sladen

I think everybody knows she was my favourite. And it's more of a shock than Nick Courtney because he was a lot older and had a few near misses over the last couple of years...

My wife grew up wanting to *be* SJS - she's a role-model, you see, and we just cremated her dad last week, so it's even worse for her...

Talk about a double whammy

I agree by the way that Clyde and Rani could carry the show, if the BBC wanted to go that route. I'm torn--on the one hand it'll seem so odd without her, but it'd be a shame if along with losing Sarah Jane we never saw Clyde, Rani or Luke again.

Re: Lis Sladen

Anyone have a link to the BBC report featuring the comments by RTD?

I'm trying to find out more about what is actually being said by people who knew her not commentaries by people writing about her death.

Thanks.

Edit: Found one already (less than a minute after I posted this) but I think there's another one people are referring too.

Here's a nice gallery of pictures, many I haven't seen before, from throughout her Who career.

Re: Lis Sladen

Maybe Luke, Clyde, and Rani could turn up on Doctor Who sometime. As good as they are, I'm not sure they could carry the show by themselves. I really hope they don't try and continue the show with Jo Grant; it's not that I don't like the character, but it just wouldn't be the same.

Re: Lis Sladen

Yeah I wouldn't want Jo back if I'm honest. I actually don't think you'd need to introduce anyone new, heck have Rani's dad become aware of the alien threat malarky and become the adult member of the team, that would introduce an interesting new dynamic between him and Clyde and I'm sure the idea of a kid bossing the headmaster around would please much of the show's viewership.

This is all academic though, what'll be will be, I think at the moment we should just be mourning Lis.

Re: Lis Sladen

I think that they should just let it end. No other ex-companions turning up, no sidekicks taking centre stage. Lis is gone, and she was the show.
