Plenty of stories I didn't know about making Doctor Who even though I thought I knew that well Plus reading about the rest of her career was fascinating It is surprising and a little sad that she was so self critical of her own performances but I can understand that attitude suffering from it myself She concentrates on her professional life and so the epilogue by her daughter about her mum is especially poignant

A uniue insider's view of the world's longest running science fiction series from one of the fans' favorite companions David Tennant's foreword caps this warm witty memoir a fitting tribute to a woman who will be sadly missed by legions of fans When Elisabeth Sladen first appeared as plucky journalist Sarah Jane Smith in Doctor Who story The Time Warrior little did she know the character would become one of the most enduring and fondly remembered in the series' history Here she shares the story of her years as Sarah Jane traver. Review from BadelyngeNinety nine out of every hundred people reading this book are going to be dyed in the wool Doctor Who fans Lis knew this uite well Which is probably one of the reasons the bulk of the book is taken up documenting the short period of her life working on the show She's giving the target audience what they want I'm a hardcore Doctor Who fan myself I love all her insights and observations about the show But I would also have liked to read about the real Elisabeth Sladen behind the Sarah Jane Smith parade There are glimpses of it of course but not enough Her parent's history is just a short prelude and her childhood rushes by in a confusingly unchronological blur of Elvis posters and tomboy hi jinx Her early career on stage and tv bring structure to the book as the various productions provide a set of hooks to pin her years on There are some fascinating insights into the many famous faces she worked with or encountered names like Michael Crawford Robert Morley and Alan Ayckbourn Here she also meets her soon to be husband and apparent soul mate Brian Miller There is a sort of embarrassed reluctance though to let the reader get under the surface of their relationship whether in defence of their privacy or insecurity about how much personal detail a fan of a tv show would want I don't know There is an opinion probably accurate expressed by her daughter that Lis didn't really fully realise just how much she was loved by the fans of the showIt's no use denying that most fans of the classic show are pretty hard core nostalgia junkies I am one of them so I lapped up all the stories about her time on the show All the stuff about her love hate relationship with Jon Pertwee are priceless the utter Doctor Who legend that was Barry Letts Tom Baker the lovely but tragic Ian Marter There are also names that she was less impressed with allowing her grumpier aspects to have a bit of page space Her time on the show comes to an and the book almost fast forwards to the finish stopping briefly to describe some of her later involvements on specials and spin offs conventions missed career opportunities the birth of her daughter and the eventual resurgence of the show that would lead to The Sarah Jane AdventuresWe live in a media age where it seems that not a day can go by without someone familiar passing away but I can honestly say I have never been shocked so badly as the night I found out we'd lost Lis Sladen This book was completed only at the last and it has been a sad pleasure to hear her voice in my head again
