Starlog Archives: Dr. Who’s Unforgettable Companion

If you’re a long time Dr. Who fan, you probably already know that Sarah Jane Smith was one of the Doctor’s most popular human companions in the seventies and early eighties.  However, if you’re like me, you may need to brush up on your Dr. Who lore.  Like a lot of folks, my knowledge begins with the 2005 reboot.  The following season, actress Elisabeth Sladen reprised her role as Sarah Jane opposite the then-current Doctor, David Tennant.

Her appearance proved so popular that Sladen got her own spin-off show, The Sarah Jane Adventures, which ran from 2009-2011.  In the December 2006 issue of Starlog, Sladen talked about her return to the world of Dr. Who in the episode “School Reunion”.

  1. Nice article. I watched Doctor Who for a while in the late 1970s, and as I recall I caught a few episodes from the very end of the Sarah Jane era. Needless to say, Lis Sladen will not be forgotten when her birth date roles around.
