Hamlet Without the Prince?

Elisabeth Sladen

The Sarah Jane Adventures (the Doctor Who spinoff whose star, Elisabeth Sladen, recently died) is reportedly going to continue without the title character. I’m not sure how they’re going to do that or how I feel about it.

    It’s probably just to close out the season.

    BBC now announces (apparently) the opposite:

    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.

    But this makes no sense, because there are no “six episodes that were recorded with her last year.” There were six episodes written for the new unaired season, but she filmed only three before her death. Or so all previous announcements have said.

      Okay, I think I just figured it out. As I should have remembered, each episode of SJA is a 2-parter. So the three whole episodes filmed = the six individual installments filmed (leaving an additional three whole episodes, or six installments, scripted but never-to-be-filmed).
