Things We Saw Today: That Elizabeth Sladen Died

Things We Saw Today

The BBC is reporting that Elisabeth Sladen, who became most famous for her role as Sarah Jane Smith, companion of the fourth and fifth Doctors of Doctor Who, died today at the age of sixty-three. She had been battling cancer for some time.
