Take notes

Dept. of four-plus (!) months of Doctor Who memeishness

Two Days In a Row - Goodness!
It's Day 28 of the 30 Day Doctor Who meme for me, and the subject it asks me to talk about - a Doctor Who episode idea I created myself - is one I actually find difficult to approach. That's odd, perhaps, given my forays into writing fan fiction, but it's true. Still, I'll take a stab at it.

Gone Too Bloody Soon:
Elisabeth Sladen, Feb. 1948-April 2011

     I am uncomfortably close to gutted after hearing that Elisabeth Sladen — once and forever Sarah Jane Smith of Doctor Who and The Sarah Jane Adventures, as well as a fantastic person in her own right — has died of cancer, at the age of 63. My condolences to her family and friends.

     Goodbye, Sarah Jane. You were brave and dauntless when you were young. You were that and more — a magnificent and level-headed journalist who didn't suffer fools, a woman unafraid of life as a glorious solo adventure, and still full of love for those around her — in your maturity. You'll never know how much I'll miss you.
