This photoshoot took place in 2009 for the Doctor Who Magazine Special Edition: Sarah Jane Smith and, as you can see, Lis proudly sports her DWM Mighty 200 Award she won for her role as the "Favourite Companion" ever!
Sarah Jane first appeared in the Third Doctor adventure, The Time Warrior, in 1973 and left in the Fourth Doctor story, The Hand of Fear. But that wasn't the end for our plucky journalist, not by any means. Sladen returned for the very first Doctor Who spin-off, K9 & Company, and then again for the 20th Anniversary epic, The Five Doctors.
In 2006, she teamed up with the Tenth Doctor and Rose Tyler for School Reunion which led to her very own hugely successful series, The Sarah Jane Adventures, and another two appearances in Doctor Who - 2008's The Stolen Earth / Journey's End and 2010's The End Of Time Part Two.
