Today, February 1st would have been her 70th Birthday had she not tragically died in 2011 on break from filming The Sarah Jane Adventures.
Still the best companion ever, even after 40 years of competition.
The warmth. The charm. The gravitas. The Class. The fun. The cheek.
She was and still is, the greatest, at least to this Who fan.
She was so good she got her own TV show and it was #1 on CBBC for the entire run of the show. Now that’s presence and star power when 30 years after she was WHO.
Generations of people mourned her loss.
I only ever saw her once at a convention in Chicago in 1983. I will always regret I missed her last appearance at Gallifrey One due to working two jobs at then time.
As I have previously relayed I returned from England for the very time that Sunday Night. Got up on Tuesday morning after all that Jet lag to find out she’d passed away.
Broke my heart. Still does.
Sarah Jane Smith: No. 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.
Rose Tyler: What do I do? Do I stay with him?
Sarah Jane Smith: Yes, some things are worth getting your heart broken for.
And Lis was worth getting your heart broken for.
