Today, it was confirmed that our very own Sarah Jane Smith (“Doctor Who” and “The Sarah Jane Adventures”) has passed away. I am devastated upon hearing this as Sarah Jane has been one of my personal heroes.
Sarah Jane Smith became a character I wanted to identify with. She was a strong woman who, more often than not, saved the world. How could you not look up to that? And she did it without pretense and even without the help of the Doctor, becoming something that little girls could strive to be.
You will always be loved, Sarah Jane. Tonight, we look up to the heavens and think of you traveling above us, the brightest star, keeping an eye on the planet and making sure that we’re safe. After all, that’s what you always did.
Rest in Peace, Elisabeth Sladen.
