He's supposed to be recording his first one with Louise this Friday.

I'm not sure he's a man for regrets, but I'm sure if he enjoys it the thought will occur to him, if only he'd said yes a year earlier...

Tom Baker's website is very slow, I'd imagine it's being swamped. I still can't get over the truly amazing reaction. It's STILL trending on twitter.

Thank you for sharing this. A lovely tribute to Lis Sladen and I'm thrilled that he included those photos, especially the one of him, Lis and Ian Marter singing.

Re: Lis Sladen

It was a shocker for me.

I was eating my breakfast at 5:30 and it came on the news, i actually stopped and didnt eat anymore i was that shocked.

She must have kept her illness so quiet. Its so sad, but then everyone has their day i suppose.

I always remember her return episode in School Reunion, it was fantastically done, so touching but not ott like it couldve ended up.

Ill go and watch that tonight at some point , its just that scene in the stair well when she see's the police box for the first time in almost 30 years, then the Doctor is just standing there and its just such a touching scene. they have never matched that since. And everytime she appeared, her grace, profesionalism and presence was amazing. Even next to all of the guest cast in Tennants last full season, she stood out, but then she would.



Ironic that her last episode was titled Goodbye Sarah Jane Smith

We'll miss you, Lis.

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.
Yes, we know your opinion on this by now. Please take a break from this thread so we can pay tribute to Elisabeth Sladen.

Re: Lis Sladen

oh boy, I managed to not cry through all the tribute pictures and videos, but these words from the Doctor got my tears rolling. Probably because I just spent the last few hours watching season 4 of SJA. Hearing SJS say "With a team like this, think I can go on... forever" at the end of the last episode just pulled my heart.

As K-9 would say, "Goodbye Mistress."

Beat me to it.
It's a stupid tin dog. But that's the one that got me. I held up pretty well through the rest, but that little drawing just took the dagger and went right for the heart.

Re: Lis Sladen

Digital Spy has "broken" the news that the BBC is planning to run a tribute of some sort with the Series 6 premiere of Doctor Who this weekend:

http://www.digitalspy.ca/british-tv/...n-tribute.html

As some have pointed out, it'll be interesting to see if Nicholas Courtney and Barry Letts will also be included.
