Sarah Jane Adventures Official Press Release. The Rumours Stop Here.

The BBC released this on the Doctor Who Website earlier today.

 

"Contrary to press reports today we can confirm that no new episodes of The Sarah Jane Adventures will be filmed following the tragic death of actress Elisabeth Sladen in April, 2011. As a tribute to Elisabeth the six episodes that were recorded with her last year will be broadcast on CBBC at a date to be confirmed."

The Impossible Astronaut BARB viewing figures.

So after all the big newspaper ranting that Doctor Who is unpopular in the UK, the official Viewing figures have been released by BARB. 

8.86 Million people watched the episode with an Audience appreciation Index of 88 and it was the 6th most watched programme in the week. Now as far as fans are concerned the last bit is the one that counts. The competition are Soap Opera's and reality shows who in all fairness have multiple episodes in a week. It's going to be another week wefore we know what the final figures for "Day of the Moon" are.

Tom Baker Reflects Back on Lis Sladen and Sarah Jane

Today marks one week since the unbelievable news broke that we lost Elisabeth Sladen (Sarah Jane Smith) to cancer. The BBC had dedicated this past Saturday's transmission of Doctor Who: The Impossible Astronaut (the premiere episode of the new 2011 series) to her and afterwards there was a 12 minute piece on CBBC titled, My Sarah Jane: A Tribute to Elisabeth Sladen which if you saw it, I'm sure it didn't leave you with a dry eye. In it, many of her co-stars spoke about their time working with her including David Tennant and Matt Smith. The day after she passed, another Doctor actor had his say as well.

Tom Baker, the 4th Doctor in Doctor Who shares some of his memories and feelings after the passing of co-star, Elisabeth Sladen last week.

Elisabeth Sladen Has Passed Away. I'm Devastated and Stunned.

Elisabeth Sladen (Sarah Jane Smith of Doctor Who and The Sarah Jane Adventures) has died at the age of 63 I am so sad to report…

446lis_sladen.jpg

I was stunned and dismayed when read the news of passing of Elisabeth Sladen today from a tweet from Gallifrey One. I am at a lost for words. This news came to me very unexpected as I am sure it does for all Doctor Who and Sarah Jane Adventures fans. I don't know what to say at this point. Writer Paul Cornell and actress Nicola Bryant have also confirmed the news by tweeting their sentiments as well. BBC News has also confirmed it in a short statement (now a full obituary).
