ELIZABETH SLADEN ONE YEAR ON

IT’S NEARLY A YEAR SINCE THE PASSING OF THE ACTRESS ELIZABETH SLADEN  WHO PLAYED SARAH JANE SMITH BOTH IN DOCTOR WHO AND THE SARAH JANE ADVENTURES. THERE WILL BE A LOT OF ARTICLES SHOWCASING HER OVER THE NEXT WEEK BUT FOR ME, ELIZABETH SECURED THE ROLE OF A LIFETIME IN SARAH JANE BECAUSE OF ONE SIMPLE FACT. SHE WAS ONE OF THOSE RARE PEOPLE THAT STRADDLED THE GENERATIONS. NOT ONLY DID SHE SECURE OUR LOVE AND SUPPORT WHEN DEFENDING THE UNIVERSE WITH THE FOURTH DOCTOR BUT SHE DID IT AGAIN WITH OUR KIDS WHO JOINED HER ON BANNERMAN ROAD. WHEN THE DOCTOR APPEARED ON HER SHOW HE WAS THE COMPANION, NOT HER.SHE WAS THE ONLY ONE THAT COULD BRODGE THE GAP BETWEEN OLD DOCTOR WHO AND NEW DOCTOR WHO.

AND IT WASN’T UNTIL SHE RETURNED IN DAVID TENNANT EPISODE SCHOOL REUNION THAT WE REALIZED SHE WAS AN OLD FRIEND THAT WE ALWAYS HAD IN THE BACK OF OUR MINDS AND FORGOTTEN HOW MUCH WE MISSED HER.

SIMPLY PUT, ELIZABETH SLADEN, WHEREVER YOU ARE, YOU ARE STILL AN ICON FROM A MAGICAL ERA AND YOU SIMPLY WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. SEE YOU OUT THERE!
