I haven't been online for a couple of days. I log on today and the first thing - the very first thing - I read is that Elisabeth Sladen is dead. Elisabeth Sladen.
I'm not gonna write a long winded attempt to eulogise her because others will be doing that and far better than I ever could. Besides, any attempt to explain the impact she had on me, or the depth of affection I had for her, and for her most famous character, would be doomed to cliche, and serve only to make me even more maudlin than I already am.
All I will say is, Elisabeth, you will be missed.
