4.0 out of 5 stars Touching Autobiography, 23 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Elisabeth Sladen: The Autobiography (BBC Audiobooks) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Being in my mid-40s there are certain people and memories from my childhood in the 70s that will always stay with me. One such memory will be Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker and Elisabeth Sladen, AKA Sarah-Jayne Smith scaring the be-Jesus out of me every Saturday night during those cold dark winters of the mid 70s. I will always look back on affection at those programmes and have enjoyed them again on DVD with my Dr Who mad five-year-old son who is just as aware of Sarah-Jayne as he is with Amy Pond.

Obviously, Elisabeth passed away in April 2011 so her story has more poignancy due to that sad fact. Like the other recent reviewer I found it hard to listen to another actress -albeit one with a Dr Who connection - reading in the first person. It seemed a little odd and I would have enjoyed it better if they had changed the perspective of the reader. However, really that is nit-picking over what is a fascinating and touching autobiography.

She recounts her times with both Doctors and it is interesting to hear how she felt for them while in the Tardis and outside in the "real" world.

There is a nice intro from David Tennant and something written by her husband and daughter.

Not without its flaws but overall a superb audio book about a fine actress who sadly, is no longer around to enjoy the affection she has in the admirers of her work.
