So today so the passing of Elizabeth Sladen, an English actress best known for portraying Sarah Jane Smith on Doctor Who (with the Third and Fourth Doctors). Â She had apparently been battling cancer for sometime (while continuing work on her Doctor Who spin-off The Sarah Jane Chronicles). Â Sladen was notable for introducing a new kind of companion to the show. Â A sort of emancipated woman type that shied away from the typical ‘damsel in distress’ character. Â And she was really hot.
