    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.

    I am shocked. It does look like confirmation is coming in now from various sites. This is sad indeed.

    DWM and Nicola Bryant are both confirming it.

    RIP, Sarah Jane. Unbelievable.

    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.

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

    It's just been reported on BBC news so you would think they would check it was definite.

    Very sad news - a massive shock as well.

    It's not (yet) on the BBC website, IMDB or wikipedia. I do hope it turns out to be one of those nasty false rumours.

    Other than this thread, and a six pager on the Galifrey boards I can't find anything. Just checked the BBC site and did a Google news search and still nothing yet.
