With the huge lump in my throat at Sarah's departure from the TARDIS in Hand of Fear, the tears flow unashamedly today. Sad Sad Sad

Wow - I am shocked and dismayed after reading this. R.I.P. Elisabeth - you will/are definitely missed.

She always came across as so fit, as young beyond her years. Her poor family.

This is so sad. A couple of years ago I sent her a fan letter and she sent me back a signed postcard. Such a nice lady who will be missed. R.I.P.

I saw Planet of the Spiders when I was 5 years old and Sarah Jane became the first woman I ever had a crush on. I was heartbroken at the end of Hand of Fear when she left. No one ever came close to replacing her for me. She set the bar way too high for anyone else to reach.

Goodbye, my Sarah Jane.

So sad and so out of the blue. Watching the SJA she looks so fit and well and younger than her years that this has come as a total shock.

this really hurts. i've loved sarah jane/elizabeth sladen ever since i first got into who. when she first returned in 2006, i couldn't have been happier. the sarah jane adventures were the best thing since doctor who for me. this is such a loss to the acting community, the bbc, and whodom in general. she was the first lady of who. she will be missed by all.

“The universe has to move forward. Pain and loss, they define us as much as happiness or love. Whether it’s a world, or a relationship… Everything has its time. And everything ends.” - Sarah Jane Smith

Those words have new meaning today.

Just this morning I was looking at the Sarah Jane Smith Wardrobe Appreciation Society as a bit of a pick me up and then saw this news. I have always admired Elisabeth Sladen and am heartbroken by this news.

I thought this was a wind up when my wife told me about this. With Nick Courtney I'd heard that he hadn't been well for a while, it just doesn't seem real as she looked so healthy. It's so unfair.

Sorry everyone.

I am very sorry to hear this news. I was totally shocked.

I didn't change my avatar when Courtney passed, but I did try this time. I opted to use Sarah's final shot from "The Hand of Fear", her parting story. It just seems...fitting.

Sincerely,

Bill

I guess we should be happy. She's in a much better place now, along with Nick, Pertwee and Delgado and everyone else - she'll be much happier now and free of her cancer. Smile

I have never, ever cried about the passing of someone I only knew via a TV series until today. And I don't mean just a tear or two here and there. I was properly bawling. Sarah Jane was always my favorite companion growing up and I was so glad we got to know her again in her own show the last few years. And Elisabeth Sladen herself always carried herself with a huge amount of class, warmth and wit. On one hand I feel a bit silly for being so emotional about it. But I guess in a lot of ways she felt like a friend I've known most of my life. My thoughts with her family and friends and everyone that will miss her. Which will be a lot of us. The universe feels a little darker today but she's left behind so many wonderful memories for all of us to cherish and I guess that's what we should focus on.

Goodbye, Sarah Jane.

I checked my phone at work and saw a tweet from Being Human's Sinead Keenan, reading, "Shocking news about the wonderful Lis Sladen."

I had no idea what I'd read next as I scrolled down.

"Sleep well xxxx"

I was taken aback.

Feels like I got into Who pretty late, all these classic actors dying recently.

Now I'm curious as to what they'll do with The Sarah Jane Adventures and what Big Finish will do with the stories they intended to have Tom Baker and Lis perform together.

I am in utter shock...I swear it's like hearing someone I knew personally just died. This is so awful, My heart goes out to her family - I know she had a long time husband who had gotten to appear alongside her in SJA Series 3 (the man that ran the Amusement Park and cared for the alien girl Eve) and a daughter, Sadie I believe? And of course her countless fans around the world will be utterly heartbroken. I know I am. 
   I had heard she was ill as filming for SJA series 5 had been put hold. But I never dreamed it was something so serious. Being as beautiful and vibrant as she so consistently was, the thought that she might have any illness, much less cancer, was just inconceivable. 
She was a terrific actress and you could tell - you just knew she was a terrific person too.  I'm just in shock. I keep feeling like I should say something profound, almost like you would to eulogize a friend. I guess the very fact that I feel that way is a tribute to how well Lis Sladen portrayed Sarah Jane Smith and made her feel like a real person to us, made her feel like a friend. 
    The Universe is once again short a star - and one of the brightest and warmest that ever graced our hearts. You will be dearly missed Lis Sladen.

From: http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/dw/news/bulletin_110419_01/Elisabeth_Sladen

A tribute by Steven Moffat:

"'Never meet your heroes' wise people say. They weren't thinking of Lis Sladen.

"Sarah Jane Smith was everybody's hero when I was younger, and as brave and funny and brilliant as people only ever are in stories. But many years later, when I met the real Sarah Jane - Lis Sladen herself - she was exactly as any child ever have wanted her to be. Kind and gentle and clever; and a ferociously talented actress, of course, but in that perfectly English unassuming way.

"There are a blessed few who can carry a whole television show on their talent and charisma - but I can't think of one other who's done it quite so politely. I once showed my son Joshua an old episode of Doctor Who, in which Lis appeared. "But that's Sarah Jane," he said, confused "In old Doctor Who. From years ago. How come she always look exactly the same?" It's not a comfort today, of course, but children will still be saying that fifty years from now."

From Russell T Davies -

"I absolutely loved Lis. She was funny and cheeky and clever and just simply wonderful. The universe was lucky to have Sarah Jane Smith, the world was lucky to have Lis."

All I hear in my head is the echoing voice of K-9. "Mistress?"

I got into Who late in the game, but much like Nick before her, I feel a profound sense of loss at the passing of a wonderful woman. Rest Well, Sarah Jane. Rest Well.

I don't even know what to say about this right now. One of Jon's girls is gone. So soon after Nick as well. It is insane.
