Elisabeth Sladen and the Sarah Jane Adventures.

Elisabeth Sladen’s professional acting career began in the early 1970s
with minor roles in Coronation Street, Z Cars and Some Mothers Do ‘Ave’ Em.
Although she worked throughout her life in other productions, she was known most for her time-travelling journalist role as Sarah Jane Smith, in Doctor Who.

She joined Dr Who in 1973, acting initially as a companion to Jon Pertwee, the third Doctor, and continuing by the side of Tom Baker, the fourth Doctor, until 1976.

In the 1980s and 1990s, Sladen reprised the role on several occasions for special episodes and spin-offs of Doctor Who, before winning the hearts of a whole new generation of fans in the Children’s BBC series The Sarah Jane Adventures from 2007.

Sadly on the 19th of April 2011, she died of cancer with only some of the last series of The
Sarah Jane Adventures filmed.

The last series of the Sarah Jane Adventures will start on cBBC on Monday 3/10/2011 at 4:45pm
