Is Sarah Jane over?The Sun is reporting the BBC is to continue showing The Sarah Jane Adventures, and complete the series, despite Elisabeth Sladen’s death.

BBC Bosses had been unsure about the shows future without Elisaberth Sladen – and how to explain Sarah Janes absence without upsetting young fans. But sources say they want it to continue as a tribute to Elisabeth.

Once the scripts have been rewritten, it is hoped the show will air this year. A source said “Writers will find a way to complete the series without Sarah.

Can anyone say the return of Liz Shaw?
