RIP to Elisabeth Sladen (1948-2011) who played Sarah Jane Smith. Sarah Jane was a journalist and a Companion to the Third Doctor (Jon Pertwee) and the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker). She was the star of the "Sarah Jane Adventures", a DW spinoff and a popular show on the CBBC.
Sarah Jane was the first Companion I saw and identified with. I wanted to be a journalist like Sarah Jane (and have a robot dog like K-9). She proved that a Companion can be smart and sexy, and she didn't let much get in her way in her quest for the truth.
Good-bye, our Sarah Jane. May you rest in peace.
