Speaking in the most recent issue of Doctor Who, Sarah Jane Smith actress Lis Sladen has revealed that she doesn’t expect to return to the show.
The star of CBBC’s The Sarah Jane Adventures – currently shooting a second series – revealed that she feels the time has come to leave Doctor Who behind.
"This time, actually, I said to David [Tennant], ‘I’ve never thought this before, but I think this is the last time I’ll be here’. It felt like it was my last time on Doctor Who."
"I’m happy with that," she continued. "You have to stop somewhere. And then I thought, well, I’d better enjoy these episodes. And I did. I had the most amazing time. It’s been fun."
The Stolen Earth/Journey’s End is Elisabeth Sladen’s 3rd return to Doctor Who since her original stint from 1973-1976; she initially returned for 1983′s The Five Doctors before anchoring the modern series with the original run with her memorable appearance in School Reunion in 2006.
