The Crossroads of the Aether
Indeed I was very upset to hear of this. Her own special spin-off "The Sarah Jane Adventures" was fantastic which introduced her to the new generation, also making my little brother extremely sad to see her go.
But we shouldn't just be sad for her loss, we should remember all that she's done too.
I thought that the tribute to her was quite fitting. Smiling, waving and running off to another new adventure. Since Tom Baker was my first Dr., she was also my first companion. I so adored the spin-off show she had these past few years.
Lady Bess, you are quite right, I'll always remember what she has done and the part she played in my life. I only wish she had done conventions when I was younger, or ever that I would have known of. I would have loved to sit and hear her speak, let alone have a chance to meet her.
I wonder if there is a way to make a version of K-9 in her honour. It was the in last time that she appeared in Doctor Who, The Doctor left K-9 for her.
My children recently got hooked on Sarah Jane Adventures...really sorry to hear this news.
I am a huge Doctor fan, but Sarah Jane wasn't my time. I did see her a few times in episodes of Doctor Who.
But still, damn. My condolences to her family. Death is always a sad thing.
