RIP Elizabeth Sladen aka Sarah Jane Smith
She was married and had one daughter. She met her husband while they were both acting in Liverpool in the mid 1960s, and they married in 1968.
The actress initially played the role of Dr Who's journalist companion in 1973, with Jon Pertwee as the Doctor, but her travels continued under Tom Baker, with guest appearances in the later revivals. From 2007 she starred in a spin-off series, The Sarah Jane adventures (the fourth season started airing in the UK last October).
May she rest in peace.
