Those in the Dr.who universe are in a state of mourning. At age 63 after losing a battle with some type of cancer, our beloved 'Sarah Jane Smith' has passed away. She leaves behind a great legacy! This is so sureal for me at the moment, as I am currently just watching Tom Baker get his legs as the doctor, from the 70's. As you know then if you get that last bit, Elisabeth Sladen is at his side. As inquisitive and some might say more courages than other companions, Sarah Jane the journalist turned doctor's sidekick could hold her own.
Returning for the new series in 06 with David Tennant as the Doctor, was my first introduction to Sarah, and I loved it. The way her and Rose(Billie Piper) fought for the top companion spot, was brilliant. She got her own spin off show, now how many companions can we say about that in the whole history of the show (since the 1963 now!) just one other. HA I bet you thought I was gonna say no one. Just John Barrowmen and Torchwood, but he's great also! and FABULOUS! *wink wink.
So Sarah Jane, go get your story! You will be missed!
