YES! I knew this had been raised in SJA, I just couldn’t remember if it was actually called by the same name!
I’m just terribly impressed by how Moffat managed to include a nod to so many parts of the DW universe.
The big big problem with Russell T Davies’s Doctor Who
You’re a mother, aren’t you? There’s kindness in your eyes.
And sadness. But a ferocity too.
Don’t Forget Me, My Sarah Jane
Elisabeth Sladen died from cancer 2 years ago today. Knowing the 50th anniversary is coming up, it’s sad to think that she won’t be participating. I know she would have jumped at the chance to be on screen with David and Matt again.
I haven’t forgotten you, Sarah Jane. I don’t think anyone ever will.
Elisabeth Sladen died two years ago on 19 April. She was only 65 years old, a mother, a wife, and we will miss her always.
I loved their relationship so much, I like to think in some little corner of the universe Mickey and Martha’s kids called Sarah Jane “Auntie Sarah”.
Even sent back to a time when life was harder, particularly for women, Amy Pond didn’t let it deter her. She continued to be a journalist- she wrote travel articles under the name Amelia Williams, not wanting to take her name away from her younger self. Then, as time went by, she began writing more hard-hitting stuff, standing up for causes she believed in and even at times risking her life (along with her husband) for the truth.
When she reached her eighties, Amy met a little girl visiting New York on a school trip. It was the girl’s first time abroad, so Amy befriended her and talked to her and gave her some journalism tips. Even as the years- many years- passed, Sarah Jane Smith never forgot her.
The mothers of Doctor Who.
I know that, for awful reasons, it can’t happen. But I’d have loved to have seen Amy Pond and Sarah Jane Smith have a chat about writing and journalism.
Mother is the name for God…
