I just heard today about Dr Who’s sidekick Elizabeth Sladen dying. I was quite shocked , as I was only watching her a couple of weeks ago for the first time in Genesis of the Daleks in the prime of her life and all that.
Three weeks ago I had never heard of her, but I am still quite sad about it. Had anybody here by chance ever met her ? Was she into scifi at all?
I grew up watching lizzy and tom and their weekly adventures through Time! I lov ed her! However, her best work is clearly "The Sarah Jane Adventures" Great stories and great characters. Definatly a kids show but i loved it all teh same. We Miss her!
LL, I met her once. It was in Blackpool, UK in the 1970’s I think, I was a kiddy and went to the opening of a Doctor Who exhibition. I gave her some flowers (I was part of a small school delegation) and whe was very sweet.
I still think she was one of the best Dr. Who assitants (from the heyday of Dr Who) besides Katy Manning of course.
