My Sarah Jane: A Tribute to Elisabeth Sladen

My Sarah Jane: A Tribute to Elisabeth Sladen

Saturday 23 April
6:45pm – 7:00pm

Airing immediately after Doctor Who on BBC1, here’s a celebration of the Time Lord’s greatest companion played by actor Elisabeth Sladen, who passed away this week. Contributors include David Tennant and Matt Smith. Producers Gillane Seaborne and Brian Minchin.

Elisabeth Sladen created one of Doctor Who’s best loved and most enduring characters, Sarah Jane Smith. For over 35 years she brought the feisty, compassionate journalist to life, creating a figure that was adored by audiences of all ages – truly a heroine whose appeal had no boundaries.

    Sara Jane was part of my life – Lis was beautiful and vibrant in her performance. I think I fell in love with her maybe I still am.
    Everytime I see her now I know she is gone – God bless you Lis I miss you

    I had the privilage of seeing her preform in one of the pantomimes in Windsor live. You would have never had expected her to have passed away from such an illness that can take its hold so quick, so fast and so violently.

    Goodbye – Our Sarah Jane Smith.

    I’ve been a fan of Elisabeth since the 1970s. She was my first crush as a child being introduced to the 3rd and 4th Doctors. RIP Sarah Jane. Will never ever forget you. Much love to you.

    It’s hard to belive that such a wonderful lady like Elizabeth Sladen has passed away. She touched our hearts and made us believe that maybe, just maybe there really is, life in other planets and galaxies.

    There can only be one ‘Sarah Jane Smith’ in this world and that’s Elizabeth Sladen. She will and forever been known as ‘Sarah Jane Smith’ no matter where. She will be sadly missed by one and by all, for those who have become a massive fan of her work.

    Thank you so much for allowing us to join you on what is a wonderful, fantasic journey and allowing us to share your highs and lows. May you rest in peace and that the power of Doctor Who & ‘Sarah Jane Smith’ live on for many years to come.

    Elizabeth can never be replaced. Everyone liked her, and she was a great actor. She cared so much about everyone she saw and didn’t see. She will be sorely missed.
