One of the reasons that people are so vocal and upset is because of the internet, but the other reason is that Elisabeth Sladen was a class act. From what I have read, people are almost more focused on her decency and kindness than on her part on Doctor Who. And not only was she a class act, but she portrayed Sarah Jane that way.

Humans can be base and vile creatures, but when it comes to the passing of someone so willing to be the best humanity has to offer, we too show the best of humanity in our response.
AGREED! It not only hurts to know we will never see her again as such a good companion, but to know that one of the GOOD ONES...some of the best that humanity has to offer is no longer with us. We are left to inhabit this planet with all of its vile hate that humanity possess. How's about this?? For those of us that are suffering and hurting because Liz is no longer with us....why don't we all agree to honor her by making changes in our lives that make us better people?

By the way Maestro...I like your personal signature quote.

Why?
Maybe because he's sad that the actor who portrayed a beloved character is dead and watching that character will only drive home the realization that there will be no more new adventures with that character? Must personal expressions of grief be challenged?
I was curious as to know why, I was not challenging him, how you got that from a one word reply is rather impressive.

I have experienced loved ones dying, people I actually knew and interacted with on a regular basis, to discontinue doing things that would remind me of them is beyond my understanding, to do so for an actress I had no personal contact with, although sad in itself for her family and friends, is even further beyond my understanding.
Ah, I see now. Sorry, I completely misread your intent behind that post.

How you got any intent beyond a simple why was pretty impressive. The best way to find things out is to ask a question, I did, I should not be attacked for that by someone for a one word question.

Yes ... and that is why I said, "Sorry".

And calling my response to you an "attack" is a little over-the-top.

The talented Babelcolour posted his first new video in awhile this morning - a wonderful tribute to Sarah Jane:

Re: Lis Sladen

And the tears return again.

Thank you for posting this. I checked last week to see if he had made one yet but it looks like he took his time to make it right. I'm just surprised he didn't do one for Nicholas Courtney, too.

Man, my memory is failing me. Not only did I know he did do one for him, I've already seen it.

Re: Lis Sladen

I hope it's okay to bump this thread. It's two years todaydf since we lost Elisabeth Sladen. I watched "The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith" tonight. There is so much to watch and enjoy of what she did on Doctor Who, but I personally find her performance in that two parter amazing. Her final scene with DT in the TARDIS was up there with the "Don't forget me" scene from "Hand of Fear".

I miss you Lis... and I know I'm not alone.

Two years already?

I'm in the midst of watching Pyramids of Mars and she really was wonderful.
