Elisabeth Sladen

Elisabeth Sladen has died

She portrayed my favorite Doctor Who companion when I was a kid — yes, I know, I’m dating myself — and she returned to reprise her role in the new series of “Doctor Who,” as well as having her own spin-off, “The Sarah Jane Adventures,” aimed at kids but still a good show in its own right — as all good children’s programming should be. And now Elisabeth Sladen is dead at the age of 63.

I appreciated the Sarah Jane character when I was a kid — she was more than just plucky, and she had a more “modern” spirit and feel than some of the other female companions of the time.

I was very sorry to hear of her death. Rest in peace, Lis Sladen, and R.I.P., Sarah Jane.
