arduinna: a tarot-card version of Linus from Peanuts, carrying a lamp as The Hermit (Default)
It's been confirmed by BBC News that Elisabeth Sladen, who played Sarah Jane Smith in Doctor Who and her own spinoff show, died today.

Sarah Jane was my hands-down favorite companion for decades, until Donna came along, and then I loved them both about the same. But Sarah Jane was and is my soft spot. Watching her come back in School Days made me ridiculously happy; watching her spinoff makes me even happier. She is just so cool. She's smart, and strong, and funny, and doesn't take any guff from anyone.

Part of that is down to the writers, of course, but most of it is down to Elisabeth Sladen's performance. She was amazing, and she made you believe that Sarah Jane could do absolutely anything.



She was about 61 years old in this picture. And she could kick your ass from here to Sunday if she wanted.
