In news that will warm the cockles of any Doctor Who fan’s heart, Tom Baker, Terrance Dicks and Lis Sladen’s daughter Sadie Miller will be appearing at a ticketed public event at the Doctor Who Experience to launch Elisabeth Sladen: The Autobiography on November 26th.
Starting at 2.30pm Aurum Press are proud to host a very special, one-off event at the Doctor Who Experience. Elisabeth’s daughter, Sadie Miller, the 4th Doctor: Tom Baker, and Doctor Who writer and producer Terrance Dicks will be in conversation with TV Choice magazine’s Ben Lawrence, discussing the life and their memories of Elisabeth Sladen in the screening room at the venue.
Earlier this year, the sad death of Elisabeth Sladen – the talented actress who played Sarah Jane Smith in Doctor Who and spin-off show The Sarah Jane Adventures – was met with national grief and affection. Consistently voted one of the Doctor’s favourite companions by fans, Elisabeth had almost finished her much anticipated autobiography when she passed away. After her death, the book was completed with the help and full support of her husband and daughter.
Entrance to the launch of Elisabeth Sladen: The Autobiography is free to Doctor Who Experience ticket holders. In order to attend you will need to book in advance via the www.doctorwhoexperience.com website. As there are limited slots these instructions should make it clear:
Visitors must select 12.30pm/ 1pm or 2pm time slot on Saturday 26th November. When they select their ticket type they will also have the option to select ‘Elisabeth Sladen book launch entry’. They will then be issued with a separate ticket for this.
Featuring a foreword by David Tennant, Elisabeth Sladen: The Autobiography is published by Aurum Press and has an RRP of £18.99, although if you can’t make the event you can pick it up for just £10.63 from Amazon.
