Watching Pyramids of Mars now for some random SJS goodness (and the late Michael Sheard as well, who I knew better)
DWF loaned me a few DVDs of different Doctors recently.. and fortunately "Pyramids of Mars" was one of them. I think i will do the same as you on this tonight.


And speak of the Devil...

Sarah Jane was my favorite companion and it was because of how Liz played as being so human. She had been sick ofr while but she remained a beautiful woman.
Very well put!

Re: Lis Sladen

Three episodes of season five were shot and are in the can. The remaining three were scheduled for production to commence 'Spring 2011', so it's highly unlikely the series will be completed.

This is sad news, and I had no idea she was sick. Then again I had no idea Nicholas Courtney was sick either.

RIP.

My guess is that they will add the six episodes / three stories to the upcoming fourth season dvd release (which will come out, what, November?). But I think this is the end of the series.

I can only recall one other time when there was an active series running, named for the title character, that continued after the death of that character (Valerie, which eventually became "The Hogan Family") but even then, the actress was still with us. This is new territory.

Re: Lis Sladen

That is so so so sad. She was such a nice person. I imagine Saturday's episode will be dedicated to her. 63 is no age, bloody cancer...

Re: Lis Sladen

Three episodes? Well, SJA stories are always two-parters, so the last one was probably the first installment of a story that will now, sadly, go unfinished......

Damn, I'm upset.

The BBC isn't going to throw the money they spent on the SJA episodes down the drain like that, not in this time of austerity and budget cutbacks. The BBC broadcast the final season of Father Ted, even though Dermot Morgan died the day after filming the final episode, after all. I don't see anything insensitive about an autumn broadcast of the episodes.
Father Ted was Channel 4, not the BBC, and at least they'd filmed all the episodes - the final episode was always intended as the final one.

Re: Lis Sladen

I'm still in shock and completely gutted by the news. She was such a lovely lady.

Sarah Jane was part of my childhood, and I can't believe she has gone.

Goodbye Lis and thank you.

R.I.P.

I *think* it's three out of six stories, rather than three individual episodes. Not quite sure though.

Re: Lis Sladen

Oh my God. I just saw this on the BBC news, came right out of the blue because I haven't been online for hours.

Shit, I can't describe how shocking that was, as soon as they mentioned her name I knew but...aw crap, it was horrible, but Courtney made sense given his age, 63's no bloody age.

Like someone else said, Lis was one of my very first crushes as a child growing up and watching Doctor Who....I just can't believe it.

RIP Lis, thanks for playing a wonderful character who meant a lot to many, many people. You won't ever be forgotten

I am tempted to say, they should use the filmed footage, to create a new storyline, of her death, maybe have just 1, 1 hour episode with Luke narrating his mothers final months.

That assume there is the kind of footage for that.

Even if S5 was finished, its not likely to be the right knid of ending, which may well be impossible now.

On the upside, they may have re-introduced Liz Shaw just in time, even if they only need her to finish one episode.

I'm probably the only one that wants this, but I think a tribute episode with Tennant, Tom Baker and Smith would be needed

No, no, a thousand times no.
