For those of you who don't already know, Elisabeth Sladen (Sarah Jane Smith in Dr Who) has passed away. It appears that she had been fighting cancer for some time.

The BBC has a brief report: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-13137674

Go to http://cakewrecks.blogspot.com/ and scroll about half-way down. The Tardis that you can look inside is particularly spectacular.

"Before video and DVD, Dr Who fans who wanted a fix of the time lord in between the TV shows relied on a series of official novels. Writing for the Magazine, Mark Gatiss recalls his love of Dr Who's adventures in print."

Today's Times has a picture of a costume from a Dr Who story of 1978, which will be auctioned next week. (I don't see it online, but I can send you one person a clipping.)

Did anyone see Mastermind last Friday? It had a round on Dr Who in the 1970s. Sadly, we missed it; I must remember to download it before this Friday.
