Elizabeth Sladen (AKA Sarah Jane Smith) Passed Away.

Actress Elizabeth Sladen
It is with great sadness that I heard of Elizabeth Sladen's death at the age of just 63 from cancer. The news took me completely by surprise. I watched a DVD of her playing Doctor Who's companion (Sarah Jane Smith) in The Brain Of Morbius, a few days ago.
First appearance with Jon Pertwee
On this sight of Retro Brit, I like to touch things of nostalgia, especially British things and Actress, Elizabeth Sladen was part of that Retro British world in the 70s, when she came into Doctor Who alongside Jon Pertwee. She continued the role with Tom Baker and was in some of the fine Gothic Sci/fi stories of that Sci/fi show.

Nicholas Courtney &
Elizabeth Sladen 

Alongside the late Nicholas Courtney (Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart;) that is two of the show's Retro actors to leave us. They had a unique signature of their own within the show's history.

Later when the Doctor Who TV series was resurrected, she came back as an older Sarah Jane Smith in 2006 and even done spin off shows (The Sarah Jane Adventures) She was extremely popular among Doctor Who fans and will be greatly missed.

Condolences to her family and friends.
