In Memorium: Elisabeth Sladen

Elisabeth Sladen, best known for her role as "Sarah Jane Smith" in the classic British television series Doctor Who, passed away yesterday at the age of sixty-three from cancer. She originally appeared as a regular from 1973 to 1976, opposite both Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker, and ultimately reprised her fan-favorite role many times in subsequent decades, and she earned her own Doctor Who spin-off series, The Sarah Jane Adventures, beginning in 2007.

Sladen's familiar role, which cast her opposite seven of the official doctors, truly endeared her to generations of admirers. The Catacombs extends its condolences to her family, friends and fans.
