Elisabeth Sladen’s Autobiography Coming Soon

One of the sad things about Elisabeth Sladen’s cruelly premature death in April of this year, is that it denied her the  chance to tell the full, uninterrupted story of working on the longest  running science fiction TV show of all time.
She was one of very few people who had intimate working knowledge of Doctor Who in its ‘70s pomp, made guest appearances in the ‘80s, and got to bring  her role as Sarah Jane Smith back to glorious life in the Russell T Davies era. If anyone’s had tales to tell, it would’ve been her.
Well, if it’s any consolation, you might like to know that Elisabeth  had handed in the first draft of her autobiography, shortly before she  died.
The book covered her entire life, from the early days in Liverpool, to working in the theatre, and of course her time on Doctor Who, playing Sarah Jane Smith opposite first Jon Pertwee, then Tom Baker and then, after returning to the theatre and jobbing TV work, her eventual return to the show, and The Sarah Jane Adventures.
The good news is, with the help of her husband Brian Miller, and daughter Sadie,  the redrafting work that Elisabeth had been too poorly to complete has  been done. Aurum Publishing will release her memoirs, on November 7.
