Watching the Sarah Jane Adventures ...

"Somebody just walked over my grave."
S1E7: 'Whatever Happened to Sarah Jane?' 

Elisabeth Sladen passed away April, 2011. I'm just now catching up on all the episodes of The Sarah Jane Adventures that I missed ... this brief scene was heartbreaking.

Y'know, I'm finding myself enjoying this much more than I thought I would, under the thin pretense of vetting it for my kids. (At 6-years-old, it's still probably a bit much for them, but soon I'll show it to them ... )

Anyways, this was as well-executed a kids' show as I've seen in ... forever? Ms. Sladen passed away far too soon, she finally had a vehicle that showcased her warmth and charm. More than that, it was a fine adventure show for youngsters and I don't think anything's come along to take its place. Which has me thinking how great it would be if R.T.D. would craft something similar for Nicola Bryant to bring Peri back to TV.
