Sad. She was still so young.

Elisabeth Sladen, best known for her role as journalist Sarah Jane Smith on the BBC series Dr. Who, passed away yesterday. Elisabeth succumbed to her long battle with cancer. She was 63.

Heartbreaking. We're sure her family, friends and fans are all feeling this loss today.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to all who knew her at this most difficult time.

    Never heard of her

    she was an absolute legend. I wasn't born when The Sarah Jane Adventures first began but I did watch the more recent series, and I loved her so much in Doctor Who as well! It is an awful loss :(

    A great actress. Fantastic as Sarah-Jane Smith in 'Doctor Who', and later in the characters own series. So sad that she's been taken by cancer. She always seemed so energetic and full of life.

    A huge loss to the Doctor Who community. Rest in peace Elisabeth. xx

    Re: hoochpit – Then why bother posting such an unnecessary and disrecpectful comment. Rest in peace, such a brilliant sci-fi actress.

    She was awesome but I doubt very much that Perez had ever seen her in his life. She was on a British science-fiction show in the 70's… I doubt most of this site's readers would know her or have a clue what she was about.

    Such a tragic loss. I was shocked and heartbroken at the news, I can't even imagine what her family and friends are going through right now. She was far, far too young.

    Re: Deadwing – Well, Perez has always been quite the Anglophile so I wouldn't doubt he at least knows her name. She's also been in a few episodes of the rebooted Doctor Who which started in 2005 and she is the star of her own series that was spun off around her Sarah Jane character from Doctor Who, a children's program called "The Sarah Jane Adventures". That show had 6 episodes in the can but had gone on hiatus while she was battling cancer.

    Re: flubbzi – Sarah Jane Adventures began in 2007…you're like 4? good that you're on the web. I hope you mean you weren't born when Dr. Who first started…But you're right a loss. Her death for kids who watch her adventures will be like Mr. Hooper's was in the states.

    Rest in Peace Sarah Jane! The Sci Fi community has lost a great actress.
