Sarah Jane’s Awfully Big Adventure

Elisabeth Sladen, known to millions as Sarah Jane Smith, died today aged 63 following a battle with cancer.

She first appeared in Doctor Who in the 1973 episode The Time Warrior as Sarah Jane as the investigative journalist swept up into the Doctor’s work with UNIT, in this case dealing with the first appearance of a Sontaran. She travelled with both Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker for four series, returned in 2005 with David Tennant in School Reunion, and was given her own show, The Sarah Jane Adventures in 2007.

According to the BBC, a special tribute is planned for this Saturday’s Doctor Who season premier.
