This saddens me deeply, she was a great companion, and a wonderful actress.

She was a great companion. I wish she didn't have to go so suddenly

Wonderful tribute. <3

What a lovely tribute.

She was an amazing person, both in real life from everything I've heard and of course the character. In Moffat's tribute, he said something about how people talk about how you shouldn't meet your heroes, and those people were obviously not talking about Lis Sladen. That's the point I started crying.

She certainly was an inspiration to me.

I still can't get my head around the fact she's just gone... it seems so wrong that she's just dropped out of the world.

I hope that her family are - well, doing as well as they can. She's going to be missed.

May she rest in peace, too many people are dying at the moment and it is upsetting to know she too has passed.
I hope that wherever she is now she is happy and I hope that she knew what a positive effect she had on the world.
People don't realise it but TV characters have a substantial effect on your subconscious, and Sarah Jane Smith was a character beloved by all.
She had a great life. Good Luck Elisabeth Sladen.

Unbelievably sad news, she was a genuinely warm and caring person and a fellow scouser too...... rest in peace Lis.

She really was a great inspiration for young women, and a greater one for me as an artist. She was loved deeply and we'll never forget what an awesome force of nature she brought to Doctor Who in the form of Sarah Jane Smith. Rest in peace Lis.

Sad to hear that, for me I remember her on Dr. Who with Tom Baker (4th doctor) when they showed Dr. Who on PBS here (USA), they don't show it anymore and I've missed it for a long time

;_; So sad. Especially now that I'll be watching dr Who, I'll feel like I'm seeing a ghost and feel sad again... Just like when I watched Babylon 5...
