When Elisabeth Sladen debuted as journalist Sarah Jane Smith in the 1973 Doctor Who story ' The Time Warrior' she had no idea the character would become one of the most popular in the series' history.

Three years later when she quit the TARDIS, having traversed space and time alongside Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker, the story was front page news.

But you don' t just walk away from the Doctor. Elisabeth reprised her role many times, and went on to tour the weird and wonderful world of Doctor Who fandom. So when TV wunderkind Russell T. Davies approached her to come back again, this time to a show backed by multi-million pound budgets and garlanded with critical plaudits, how could she refuse?

Completed only months before her death in April 2011, Elisabeth' s memoir is funny, ridiculous, insightful and entertaining - a fitting tribute to a woman who will be sadly missed by millions.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A fitting and fascinating memorial to the Doctor's one true assistant'


'The book is a marvellous read on many levels. It is a first rate insider's view of Doctor Who and classic Doctors Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker. Not to mention a perspective on the new show and the workings of the BBC. But it is far more than that. It is the life story of a wonderful, witty, warm, kind and amazing woman who fleshed out an endearing and enduring fictional character'


'Who fans will not feel shortchanged ... gives you a sense of her down-to-earth nature'

'It's a great read, and contains much that was not previously known about Lis and her life. It stands as one of the best of the Doctor Who autobiographies'
