Re: Lis Sladen

In reading this thread and the various tributes, I actually teared up tonight. I'm not sure why as I only knew Sarah Jane Smith a short time (School Reunion and the Season 4 finale), haven't seen her in the Tom Baker Years, and haven't seen an episode of the Sarah Jane Adventures. Still, I got emotional reading these tributes, and I think the reason why is because they've been extremely powerful and extremely classy. There's been no disagreements, no arguments, just an undying love to someone who touched so many lives.

I think that's how I see someone like Elizabeth Sladen. Everyone has a favorite doctor, favorite companion, favorite whatever, but this woman has touched the lives of so many people from producers to actors to fans (especially children fans) that it feels like a major loss in the world. She was a classy person, full of life and spirit, and personally, I saw that in School Reunion.

I guess looking at it from my perspective, casting a former companion could be something like stunt casting but I didn't see it in that episode. I saw someone who fit right in with the chemistry of Rose and the Doctor and someone who I wish I got to know more of some more. Maybe one day, I might go back and watch the Sarah Jane Adventures or the Tom Baker years, but now I only have what others say and what others are saying are sentiments that are powerful and emotional.

A hole was left by this shocking news this week. I only found out about it tonight, and my heart goes out to the family, friends, and fans who she has touched over the years.

RIP Sarah Jane.

A nice pictorial tribute at the Radio Times website, and some shots folks might not have seen before.

Yeah, but that particular spreadsheet doesn't include Series 4 or SJA, or at least it didn't the last time I saw it. If I'm recalling the numbers correctly, "The Stolen Earth/Journey's End", "The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith" and "Death of the Doctor" put Sarah Jane over Jamie. Maybe.

Well, my spreadsheet focused only on Doctor Who and not any of the spin-offs. But...

If you go by number of episodes and/or number of hours, Jamie beats Sarah Jane (I know because I made a spreadsheet on this a few years ago and posted in this forum). Sorry, minor nitpick.
Hmmm, it might be time to recalculate to take her later appearances with Ten and Eleven into account. And I assume you counted The Two Doctors?
I don't think I have her subsequent appearances on Doctor Who after "School Reunion." Unfortunately, the original file has been lost (although I'm still holding out a small hope that it, amongst many other files, will be retrieved from the damaged hard drive...) but I think I still have the screen capture of the spreadsheet somewhere. Retyping and recalculating will be a pain in the ass.

And, yes, I included The Two Doctors in Jamie's count (and The Five Doctors for Sarah Jane, but not Jamie because his appearance was a mere cameo).

Oh and speaking of dvde's, anyone know if she recorded any commentaries that have yet to be released? No doubt there'll be a lovely memorial on the next episode from her era thats released.
There are four episodes from her era which haven't been released: Invasion of the Dinosaurs, Death to the Daleks, Terror of the Zygons, and The Android Invasion. Zygons and Daleks have both been confirmed as being in production, but I have no idea if that means she was able to record a commentary.
I asked Philip Hinchcliffe if he'd done Android Invasion's shortly after we lost Barry, he said he hadn't. AFIAK the other three weren't done before she stopped doing them either, but don't know that for certain.

I wouldn't rule out a Brigadier boxset of Dinosaurs and Zygons, or Sarah Jane set of Daleks and Androids. From what Nick Briggs was saying, they were in the process of doing a SJ documentary anyway.

I did some searching and I found the old screencap. Unfortunately it's four years out of date.

Aw crikey, I just watched School Reunion and damn if it didn't send chills up my spine

Never mind "My Sarah Jane." I think she should be rebadged as Our Sarah Jane.

Re: Lis Sladen

I relistened to Big Finish's Zagreus yesterday and it was a double whammy. Lis Sladen's brief cameo and Nicholas Courtney's substantial role (AND *spoiler for those who haven't listened to it, but those who have, know who I'm talking about*).

I can't wait for those BBC Radio audios to arrive...

I just found out about this. This is very sad. I'm going to have to watch "Pyramids of Mars" again soon.

My condolences to her family and friends.

RIP Lis Sladen/Sarah Jane.

she had stopped doing commentaries so the just released Planet Of The Spiders may be the last one.

Re: Lis Sladen

The CBBC's 15-minute tribute to Lis Sladen, with reminiscences from Davies, Tennant, Smith, Katy Manning, and the Sarah Jane cast.

On an unrelated note, what the heck is going on with Matt Smith's hair? That has to drive Who's continuity person insane.

Yes it was.

I watched it on CBBC earlier and given she died, what on Tuesday, having that all done for this evening was, although not massively impressive (I knew they could do it) it was nice neither-less and proved a poster here wrong which was brilliant.

It was very touching though and that was the main thing.
