Lis Sladen

According to multiple sources, Lis Sladen passed away earlier today from cancer.

She was my first Doctor Who companion, and my first Doctor Who crush, and I think I'll go home tonight and watch "School Reunion."

Sleep well, Ms. Sladen.

This is very sad. More so that it comes as a complete surprise. I don't ever recall hearing even a hint of her being ill.

Re: Lis Sladen

Is Lis Sladen gone? I see a lot of tweeting, but no original report - is this confirmed? A bloody shock if true.
