Sad News in the "WHO-niverse"
I was just saddened to learn that one of my favorite actresses in the "Doctor Who" universe passed away yesterday following a long bout with cancer. Elisabeth Sladen(63) joined the Doctor in 1973 playing Sarah Jane Smith. When she joined the Doctor (in his 3rd incarnation) was played by Jon Pertwee. After 3 1/2 years with Jon, she played alongside his 4th incarnation (long-time fan favorite) Tom Baker. She continued to play Sarah Jane in a couple of shows. The very short-lived "K-9 and Company" and more recently "The Sarah Jane Adventures".
