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.
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.
