HEROES OF DOCTOR WHO SARAH JANE SMITH ELIZABETH SLADEN

THE MOST FAMOUS OF ALL COMPANIONS, SARAH JANE SMITH BRIDEGED MORE DOCTORS THAN ANYONE, SHE TRAVELLED WITHT HE 3RD AND 4TH, MET ALL FIVE INCARNATIONS IN THE 5 DOCTORS, BATTLED ALONGSIDE THE 10TH AND THE 11TH, AND MET THE 7TH IN THE NOVEL BULLET TIME. SHE IS THE FIRST AND ONLY TO GET HER OWN SPIN OFF SERIES K9 AND COMPANY BEFORE HER OWN FULLY FLEDGED SERIES THE SARAH JANE ADVENTURES WHICH HAS RAN FOR THE LAST 4 YEARS.

BUT ELIZABETH DIED A FEW WEEKS AGO FROM CANCER AND THE BBC HAS SAID THEY WILL AIR THE COMPLETED STORIES BUT AFTER THAT THE SERIES WILL BE NO MORE. IT WAS THE SHOCK OF LOSING ELIZABETH WHEN SHE SEEMED IN HER PRIME AND HAD THAT WONDERFUL AGELESS QUALITY ABOUT HER THAT HAS DEVASTATED PEOPLE. SHE ATTENDED CONVENTIONS WITH GRACE AND DIGNITY, MAKING TIME FOR EVERYONE

HER DELIGHT AT THE SUCCESS OF HER OWN SHOW WAS OBVIOUS AND AS SOMEONE SAID, SARAH JANE IS THE BAR TO BEAT WHEN BECOMING A DOCTOR WHO COMPANION. SHE AND TOM WERE GOLD, PERFECT TIMING AND A PERFECT MATCH AND THEIR ADVENTURES DEFINED THE SHOW AS HOW IT SHOULD BE DONE.

THEY ARE WATCHABLE OVER AND OVER AGAIN AND EVEN FOR A KID’S SHOW SARAH JANE TACKLES SOME VERY ADULT ISSUES.

HER FAREWELL SCENE RANKS AS THE MOST MEMORABLE AND HER RETURN IN SCHOOL EUNION, FOR ME, FOCUSED TENNANT’S DOCTOR AND HE BECAME THE DOCTOR FOR ME WHEN HE MET HER.

SHE MAY BE GONE BUT THE LEGACY ELIZABETH HS LEFT WILL LIVE FOREVER, AS CORNY AS IT SOUNDS BUT SHE WAS TRULY THE QUEEN OF DOCTOR WHO.
