Doctor Who and Sarah Jane Adventures actress Elisabeth Sladen drew the crowds last weekend when she made an appearance at Oxford Street’s Borders bookstore to sign copies of the new Sarah Jane Adventures tie-in audiobooks.
More than 200 fans of all ages visited the store to meet the actress. BBC Audiobooks insiders describe the event as “a great success”.
The Glittering Storm and The Thirteenth Stone are read by Sladen and mark the first time that BBC Audiobooks have commissioned new content for exclusive release on audio.
Sladen first played the role of Sarah Jane Smith, investigative journalist from 1973 � 1976 during which time she was companion to both Jon Pertwee as the third Doctor and Tom Baker as the Fourth. In 2006 she appeared opposite David Tennant and Billie Piper in the second series of Doctor Who’s hit revival.
