Elisabeth Sladen 1948-2011

This makes me incredibly sad.

OH NOOOOO!!!!!!!

A world without Sarah Jane Smith scarcely bears thinking about.

I was listening to the commentary track on the Special Edition of The 5 Doctors just three days ago. We had this exchange of dialogue:

Elizabeth Sladen: "But you changed. You became..."

Jon Pertwee: "All teeth and curls?"

Then, on the commentary track, Terrence Dicks who wrote the episode started squawking: "I gave that line TO HER! I know just what happened. Jon thought "That's a good line. I'd like it." so he asked the line to be shifted to her, and sweet little Liz just let him, the big, egotistical ham!"

She's only known for one role,but she played that role for over 30 years. Who'll recarge K-9 now?
