HEROES OF DOCTOR WHO SARA KINGDOM JEAN MARSH

SARA KINGDOM LASTED ONE STORY, THE DALEKS MASTERPLAN, THE 13 PART EPIC, A FIRST IN THE SHOW’S HISTORY. SHE PACKED A LOT IN, KILLING HER OWN BROTHER(WHO WOULD LATER BECOME THE BRIGADIER), FOUND HER BOSS WAS PART OF A HUGE CONSPIRACY TO DESTROY EARTH AND DOMINATE THE UNIVERSE, THREW HER LOT IN WITH THE DOCTOR AND STEVEN AND SACRIFICED HERSELF WHEN SHE AGED TO DEATH BY TAKING THE TIME DESTRUCTOR.

EVEN IN HER SHORT TIME, THE DEATH OF A COMPANION WAS UNHEARD OF AND YET HERE WE HAVE 2 GO IN 13 EPISODES SO THE EFFECT WAS DRAMATIC. JEAN HAD APPEARED IN A PREVIOUS STORY, THE CRUSADERS AND WOULD RETURN YEARS LATER TO BATTLE THE 7TH DOCTOR IN BATTLEFIELD AS WITCH MORGAINE AND AS A GREAT INJOKE MET THE BROTHER SHE HAD MURDERED IN THE DALEKS MASTERPLAN AND LET HIM LIVE. THIS WAS OF COURSE, NICHOLAS COURTNEY WHO PLAYED BOTH BRETT AND THE BRIGADIER.

HOWEVER DEATH IS NOT THE END BECAUSE SARA HAS RETURNED IN SEVERAL BIG FINISH COMPANION CHRONICLES, IN A CLEVER TWIST THAT ALLOWED HER TO COME BACK FROM THE DEAD.
