Elisabeth Sladen created one of Doctor Who’s best loved and most enduring

This 15 minute programme is both a tribute and a celebration of Elisabeth
Sladen. It brings together stories from friends and colleagues and draws on a
rich archive of material to remind us of Sarah Jane’s journey, from companion to
the Third Doctor to the central character in CBBC’s award-winning The Sarah Jane
Produced by Gillane Seaborne and Brian Minchin, My Sarah Jane: A Tribute to
Elisabeth Sladen is on CBBC on Saturday, at 6.45pm, straight after the end of
