As expected, her untimely death means that the BBC has no plans now to film further episodes of The Sarah Jane Adventures. But it has now confirmed that it will screen the episodes that were already shot. The BBC statement reads:
"Contrary to press reports today we can confirm that no new episodes of The Sarah Jane Adventures will be filmed following the tragic death of actress Elisabeth Sladen in April, 2011. As a tribute to Elisabeth the six episodes that were recorded with her last year will be broadcast on CBBC at a date to be confirmed."
Once we have that transmission date, we'll be sure to let you know. Our thoughts remain with Elisabeth Sladen's family.
