    I’m getting it (rather late, but sure suits me !) tommorrow and look forward to reading it.

    They come out once a month so I don’t mind getting them rather late.

    Superb copy of a good magazine, her death still brings tears to my eyes

    Great read, and very moving…
    WHY DOES IT SAY SHE DIED AT 65? I’m sure she was 63 :/
    Also, it says her last adventure was THE MAN WHO WASN’T THERE, no it wasn’t- it was THE MAN WHO NEVER WAS…

      It’s complicated, she was born on the 1st of February 1946, however she claimed to be two years younger than she actually was (even though we all knew her actual date of birth).

      Out of respect Doctor WHo went with her “official” birthdate in her tribute at the start of The Impossible Astronaut, nobody wants to look old even in death so they knidly took two years off her age for her.

    I think that new figures would be great to see. with new and classic Doctor Who figures coming out every month it would be nice to see more Sarah Jane figures. I would like to see a 12 inch Sarah Jane

    • McGann is the Doctor.

      October 19th, 2011 - 11:20am

      Or a classic-Series figure release of Sarah, probably from The Planet of Spiders. 😉

    • Andrew Blakey

      October 20th, 2011 - 12:03am

      yeah that would be great Sarah Jane from Planet of the Spiders.

      there are so many versions of Sarah they could release. how about a figure of Sarah Jane as she appeared in The Five Doctors

      October 16th, 2011 - 5:30pm

      They should do as a tribute because Sarah Jane is part of the Who world and it deserves to be noticed .

    it has been ages since the magazine has come with anything now, you should at least get a poster with this one. Seeing as what the magazine is based upon.

    This is going to be like the Nic Courtney Special Issue – Something to Treasure – and Liz will always live on in fans new and old when we watch sarahs classic adventures again and again…

    Love the use of gold on the cover, reflecting that to many of us, she was a very special woman 🙂

    • McGann The Doctor.
