Re: Lis Sladen

I'm not so sure. The other characters of SJA simply aren't the same without Sarah Jane herself.

Obviously there is no way to go forward with the remaining episodes of series 5.
Unless another companion of old steps up for the final three, slightly re-written, to give the series some closure.

Real-world though, I'd say just let it go.

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.
sorry but im not sure that would work, I dont think the new actress would ever be accpeted, if the TARDIS was to regenerate her, it would have to be into ES again, dont think a 2nd actress could play the role.

The best bet for the show to continue would seem to be Jo Grant.

That said the TARDIS could merge their two minds, so that that Sarah Jane will be part of Jo Grant.

I am sure the TARDIS can take us on a tour of Sarah Janes life, very well however.

I *think* it's three out of six stories, rather than three individual episodes. Not quite sure though.
Apparently they'd filmed 1-4,11,12 so Tommy could take part. So the series does have an ending.

Re: Lis Sladen

This post over at Blogtor Who had me in tears all over again, especially with that picture, and her final line to the Fourth Doctor when he left her behind quoted at the end.

way I see it, she is an actress, and who deeply loved the character she was playing, and knew how important that character was too so many, it seems logical she would want any completed episodes to be shown.

Rarewolf that pattern of episodes could work, but without knowing the plots, its possible something in episodes 5-10, will appear in the finale, thats tricky.

She could bring her grandson along, too. And its Jones now.

Just finished watchin' SJA 'Death of the Doctor' for the first time, and I agree, if the series continues, Jo would be the best way to keep it goin', since the teenages know her already and they'd have a peer for her to bring along on adventures.

Re: Lis Sladen

I'm sorry, but I think it's best if what they got of Series 5 is shelved, seeing as how the lead actress died before they could finish it. Perhaps they can find a way to splice the remaining footage into a future episode of DW where the Doctor finds out about her death.

I understand how you feel, but seriously: Let's just let it go, eh?

Re: Lis Sladen

^

When John Spencer died, the cast of The West Wing filmed an intro for the first episode to air after his death, to honor his memory. And then killed off his character on the show in a way similiar to how Spencer himself had died.

Not sayin' that the same thing has to be done here, of course, since the show wasn't titled "The Leo McGarry Hour" or anything.

And I'm really not that big a fan of SJA, its aimed too much at kids for my tastes. But for fans who would like to see the idea of the series - a former companion workin' with teens to keep the world safe, Jo would be the best bet.

Put it this way, if you were filming Sarah Jane Adventures, and you knew Elisabeth Sladen wasnt going to be avabile for a few episodes, you would probaly think to write an episode where Cylde & Rani, meet up with Jo & her grandson, somewhere outside of London.

Its certainly an option, but obviously the BBC, RTDs and everybody involved needs to think long and hard about if they should do it, because in some respects it would be a very easy thing to do, but maybe not the right thing.

To even have that option to consider, is very unlikely.

Re: Lis Sladen

Just noticed this on Count Zero's sig in another thread. Wikipedia and the SyFy.com forum agree.

First the Brig, now Sarah Jane . I had no idea that she was ill.
