Caroline John reads the captivating autobiography of Elisabeth Sladen, with a foreword by David Tennant and a postscript by Brian and Sadie Miller.

When Elisabeth Sladen first appeared as plucky journalist Sarah Jane Smith in the 1973 Doctor Who story The Time Warrior, little did she know her character would become one of the most enduring of the series' long history, and one of the all-time favourite companions. She left the TARDIS in 1976, but reprised the role of Sarah Jane many times, as well as touring the world of 'Doctor Who' fandom. So when Russell T. Davies approached her to star in The Sarah Jane Adventures, how could she refuse?

This warm, witty autobiography, completed only months before Elisabeth died in April 2011, tells her remarkable story, from humble beginnings in post-war Liverpool, through an acclaimed theatrical career, to Coronation Street, Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em and the furthest reaches of the Universe. A unique, insider's view of the world's longest-running sci-fi series, Elisabeth's memoir is funny, insightful and entertaining and a fitting tribute to a woman who will be sadly missed by millions.

Caroline John, actress and friend of Elisabeth Sladen, played companion Liz Shaw in Doctor Who. David Tennant was the Tenth Doctor in the hit BBC TV series. Brian and Sadie Miller are Elisabeth Sladen's husband and daughter.

    " In general I'm not one for biographies, but I was desperate to get my hands on this one, and I can happily say that it's not something I regret picking up. The little stories she had to tell were fascinating and amusing, and I liked that at the same time, she was respecting the privacy of some of the people who were mentioned, and didn't tell anything to embarrass anyone. Her great love and respect for Doctor Who and it's fans, despite not being a fan of sci-fi is beautiful, and the nearer I got to the inevitable end, the more it broke my heart to accept that she's no longer with us. "

    " Absolutely lovely. It's still hard to think that she's gone. I'll always miss my first companion, my namesake, my idol Sarah Jane Smith. A must-read for any Whovian, especially fans of Jon and Tom. "

    " I loved this book! It felt as though I was sitting down with Elisabeth Sladen and she was telling me personally about her experiences. That's the kind of actress that Elisabeth was, you just felt like you knew her, she was that genuine. She will be greatly missed and never forgotten. "

    " Amazing, so wonderful to read about Doctor who from her point of view, Funny and charming. She was such a wonderful actress and I am truly sad that she is no longer with us. "

    " A bittersweet read infused with such a delightful, engaging voice. I remember growing up worshiping Sarah Jane and was so excited when the Sarah Jane Adventures gave us fans just a tad more time with our favourite time lord assistant. This behind the scenes looks was most welcome. "

    " It was great. She's so funny and intelligent but at the same time rather humble. It's a great read for any Whovian or any one who wants to be an actor. "

    " I enjoyed the detailed info that were provided on Dr. Who. I would have also enjoyed some more about her personal life outside of Dr Who. But, I would still recommend this book. "
