EL TOPO. There could not possibly be any other answer.

I haven't told my son yet that she passed away. I think I'm going to wait until the weekend, because he has testing coming up tomorrow, and he's very sensitive and I don't want to add to his stress.

This is unexpected and very sad. I don't let my son watch New Who yet (too high of a body count, though I probably will soon). But he loved SJA. We went back and watched some Fourth Doctor, including the Ark in Space, and he was really impressed when I explained that she was the same person. She was a wonderful presence and fantastic actress. I feel like there should be some kind of narrative completion, a resolution where her character heads off into the sunset, an ending that provides us with something that real life can't. I don't know if we'll get that or not, and it's no one's obligation to to provide that for us (as in, the people that never knew the real Lis Sladen), but I can't stop ruefully wishing for it, and that's a testament to her work.
