Elisabeth Sladen: The Autobiography

By Mark
It has recently been revealed that Elisabeth Sladen will be releasing her very own autobiography early next year. Elisabeth is currently sixty one years old and is well known for her role as Sarah Jane Smith in both Doctor Who and The Sarah Jane Adventures. Her autobiography, which has no official title at the moment, will be published by Aurum Press Ltd and it's official synopsis can be viewed below;

When Elisabeth Sladen first appeared as plucky journalist Sarah Jane Smith in 1973 "Doctor Who" story "The Time Warrior", little did she know the character would become one of the most enduring and fondly remembered in the series' history. The coming years would see her traverse time and space alongside classic Doctors Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker, whilst a generation of children crouched behind the sofa, terrified but transfixed as their tea time heroine found herself menaced by Daleks, dinosaurs, Cybermen, man-eating alien flora, Egyptian mummies, extras in bubble wrap and even the Loch Ness Monster. By the time she quit the TARDIS in 1976, making front page news, Elisabeth had become one of the most familiar faces of a TV golden age. But that wasn't the end of Sarah Jane. Since then Elisabeth has reprised the role many times appearing in anniversary specials; a 1981 spin-off with robotic sidekick K-9; radio plays; and for the BBC's "Children in Need". She's toured the weird, wide and wonderful world of "Doctor Who" fandom and regularly tops polls of fans' all time favourite companions. So when TV wunderkind Russell T. Davies approached her to come back again, this time to a Doctor Who backed by multi-million pound budgets and garlanded with critical plaudits, how could she possibly say no? Now Elisabeth Sladen tells the story of her remarkable career.

This book is expected for release in March next year and at the moment will go on sale at an RRP of £16.99. It will apparently contain over three hundred pages and plans have only been revealed to release it as a hardback. As with most autobiographies, a paperback edition may however be released a few months after the hardback edition is released. More information, including the cover and news of any possible book signings, will be posted as soon as it becomes available. Will you be buying Elisabeth Sladen's autobiography when it's released?
