Radio Times has a feature interview with Katy Manning, in which she fondly reflects on the impact Doctor Who had – and continues to have – on her life.

The actress appeared as companion Jo Grant in the series between 1971-1973, and comments: “It was a real high for me. Three of the most inspiring, creative and loving years of my life. Jon and I were so close.” She goes on to describe her charater as “endearing”. “She was fiercely loyal,” she added. “She offered her life for the Doctor’s.”

In 2010 she reprised the role in The Sarah Jane Adventures. She guest starred in Death of the Doctor, in which she appeared on screen with Elisabeth Sladen and Matt Smith…

“It was the first time I’d actually worked with Lis, although we had already become close friends,” she said. “We had a lot of past with Jon that bonded us. And Matt’s a joy to work with. It’s an education to watch his beautifully realised physicality as the Doctor. I said to him once, ‘Jon Pertwee would be proud of what you’ve done with the character’.”.

Today, it is one year since Elisabeth Sladen passed away.

Although she is gone, she is certainly not forgotten, and she still lives on in our hearts as one of the Doctor’s most loved companions, Sarah Jane Smith. Joining the series in 1973, Elisabeth’s adventures through time and space went on to span decades, and they are are sure to continue on in our memories for decades to come. In 2007, she was introduced to a new generation in The Sarah Jane Adventures, proving life on Earth can be just as exciting.

Relive one of many classic Sarah Jane moments, and share your best memories, below.
