A buddy of mine from our local Doctor Who club put it very well:
"I'm in a bit of shock right now. Most geek guys my age rhapsodize about Carrie Fisher in her Jabba's palace bikini. My childhood sci-fi crush was Sarah Jane Smith, though. First the Brigadier, now Sarah Jane. Sad times for Doctor Who fans."

I think they should postpone the first episode of Series 6 of DW for another week, and show School Reunion this Saturday as a tribute to Ms. Sladen. I don't think it'll happen though.

I realise this might sound a bit cruel to some, but part of me hopes that if they had filmed any Series 5 episodes, they don't show them. It would just be too painful to watch, knowing she died so shortly after.
I want to see them. If she knew she was sick and continued to film her show, she was as brave as her fictional character and obviously wanted us to see those shows.
Funny, on Saturday, out of the blue, I was thinking how silly it was that I never noticed how beautiful she was when I was first watching the show in the mid 70s. Of course, I was only 8 at the time, but I still felt foolish now. Very strange to be thinking that random thought on Saturday and be confronted with this tragedy today.

I think they should show the episodes they've filmed, I think that's one of the best tributes she could have. Don't tie anything up, don't say anything's happened to Sarah Jane, let her continue in fiction at least.

I just feel like my heart's been torn right out of me. It's terrible.

Sorry to keep posting these messages, but I'm just so upset.

Such sad, sad news. Met her a few years ago at a convention, she was the most lovely lady. RIP.

This sucks. I met her and Pertwee back in 1983. They were both wonderful.
RIP Elizebeth.

I'm envious. I sooo would have loved to meet Pertwee but he was long dead before I even learned of the existence of the show.

Re: Lis Sladen

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.

Still can't believe it. I was reading a few of the Who news pages and every single person is in shock and are just as devastated as all of us. I don't think I've ever felt sadder about the death of someone I never met, and certainly never shed a tear, until today.

Very hard to believe. A lovely, talented woman. I very much enjoyed her work. 63 is far, far too young.

Re: Lis Sladen

While no one can replace Elizabeth, I'd really like SJA to continue somehow. I know it's a kids show, but I really enjoy it, and like those kids in those roles, and hate to see it end. I also would prefer to think that Sarah Jane herself lives on in the Whoverse, even though Elisabeth is no longer with us.

So perhaps upon learning of Sarah Jane's passing, the Doctor's heart(s) break. And so too does the Heart of the TARDIS. After all, Sarah Jane was its companion too. And for a longer time than most.

From what I know of the Heart of the TARDIS, it is alive in a sense, and telepathic, and can essentially grant people's innermost wishes for them. And no one, not even The Doctor, knows for certain how it works, or how far its power extends.

And perhaps the breaking of hearts leads could lead to the breaking of rules. And... I know its just a stupid fanboy fantasy borne of my sorrow for Elizabeth Sladen's untimely passing, but maybe, just maybe, the Heart of the TARDIS could intervene and grant an old friend the gift of regeneration.
