I like posting to this forum because I can be open and honest with you all and you...understand.

Everyone knows about my Tegan fetish. I won't dwell on that here.

This is about Elizabeth Sladen. I thought she was cool during the Baker years. She was a very likeable character to me. Fast forward to now, with the Sarah Jane Adventures. I watch the show and I like it very much.

How do I say this? I'm just going to blurt it out...

Elizabeth Sladen looks and acts better at 61 then she did when she was younger.

There, I said it. I am so glad I was able to get that off my chest. Please don't think I have a thing for "older" women, it's just that she looks darn good for being 61!

Well she still has her figure she did back then.Back then she was in style for the early 70's so some one in there 40's might of thought she was hot back then too.

She was cuter back then (though she's certainly kept her figure), but she's a much better actress now.

sarah is my favorite human companion (k9 is # 1).
I'm going to be the polar opposite and say I liked her more in Pertwee's and Baker's era. Why? Well, in school reunion she was quite wonderful- but in Journey's End she was a
weepy wendy...come on sarah was brave- not scared 24/7....grrr.

The Sarah Jane adventures gets her character back on track and from the few episodes I have seen, i have enjoyed.

Hmm...that's interesting. I didn't think of Sarah Jane as fearful in Journey's End. I thought of her as a mother suddenly confronted with the idea that her son might die, and she was unused to the sensation. I guess we took away different things from the performance.

very true mysterylad- everyone does get different interpretations.. that is why she is one of the greats in the long run of the program.

i thought she's always been pretty consistent. wether it's the original run, the 5 doctors, school reunion, or the sarah jane adventures. she is a beautifull actress, who can carry a range of emotions from a friend, to an in love girl, to a mother, to a bitter companion.

As much as I love Jamie, Jo, Liz, Ace, and the Brig, Sarah Jane is probably the best classic companion. Mostly due to her performance as an actress. She was marvelous with both Pertwee and Tom and even fit in seamlessly with Tennant. Its as if time stood still. I got chills when she first discovered the TARDIS in School Reunion and again when she came face to face with Davros in Journey's End. All because Elizabeth Sladen is fantastic!

PostSubject: Lis Sladen.   Tue Dec 29, 2009 5:22 am

I do love Lis Sladen all around. I liked her best when she was with Pertwee, and she was brilliant with Tom Baker. She seemed very off in 'Five Doctors', almost too mellow and shy, and hiding behind the Doctor (and her lovely tumble down the two foot hill). K-9 and Co was just trying wayyy too hard; just split her up into too many roles. I loved School Reunion. That moment where she first sees the TARDIS gave me chills as well. And then how she said how she waiting for the Doctor, I wanted to smack him for not coming back for her!!! lol! But then, you see her move on, and she just shines. Invasion of the Bane was a rough pilot, but at the end when she's naming Luke, you know she's going to be ok and almost starting over, or starting a new stage in her life. Some things is SJA make me pause and go 'Huh. I wonder why she chose to do that?', but it just reminds me that this is a character who's still growing and learning more and more from moving foward everyday. One thing that's odd to me is why she accepted the proposal so easily. It's like her wanting of trying to fill the void from the Doctor overtook her journalist senses, like maybe she'd slow down and investigate the guy more. And why would she keep it so secret from the gang from the start?

She was one of the first older babes I had a thing for. farao

Tight jeans, knee boots, and her make for an excellent combination. afro

If I look half as good as she does at her age, I'll be happy

I love the Sarah Jane Adventures. Even though I'm an adult!

Take care of yourself, and you can. I'm 31, but people think I'm like 19-22. afro


I would not say it's a kiddie show per say, I mean look at Doctor Who.

Thought I'd give this one a bump, so folks can express their appreciation again for Lis and Sarah Jane.
