The beautiful and talented Elisabeth Sladen sadly passed away yesterday after a battle with Cancer. For many people my age, especially women, she'll be remembered as one of the first strong female television characters. She was a fantastic role model for me growing up as a child and now some 30 years later, she has been an inspiration for my daughter's generation.
The fact that I shared my tears with the Moomin is testimony to this wonderful womans ability to reach out to her audience. She had style and class and will be so sadly missed :(
