Elisabeth Sladen, who played Sarah Jane Smith my all time favorite Doctor Who companion, has passed away of cancer. She was sixty three.

Back when we still had a VCR in the house, I had every one of her episodes with both Pertwee and Baker. I loved her portrayal of Sarah Jane as this put upon soul coping with the insanity that was the Doctor, while still able to stand up for herself and give as good as she got. Among my favorite scenes was when she was trying convince a giant robot that humanity was not hoplessly evil, The quite competence she displayed handling firearms in "The Giant Robot" and Pyramids of Mars" episodes, and the wonderful line: "There's no only in being female!"
