She’s Still Got It

Below is the cover image of the next issue of DOCTOR WHO Magazine, featuring Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane:

DAMN.

The woman is 58. Fifty-friggin-Eight.

She was my first TV crush, back when she was in her 20s, and damned if she doesn’t still make me flutter.

  1. No idea. If they do, it won’t be for another year, I bet.

    (That’s if they bother….the ratings of the US airings of the 2005 season with Christopher Eccelston, which are showing right now, have been awful. Only 1.3 million people tuned in for “Dalek”, for example, which is the lowest rating yet….they’ve been dropping every week.)

  2. The rating system remains and always will be suspect by me.

    We were a Nielson diary family a few years ago and got to see first hand how they tally things. If you record a show instead of watching it direct it only counts as half value.

    Since Friday Night is when much of the Sci Fi Network new stuff is shown on Friday Night, most folks record it to watch later. (and in the age of Tivo etc this happens to a lot of folks who watch stuff during the week as well). That means they are probably only counting HALF as many people that are watching.

    SF draws technologically oriented/intelligent people, who know how to use their technology appropriately to make their lives easier, but this means they make terrible folks to sell stuff to on commercials. Vicious cycle.

  3. Me, I love K9

    BTW, have you heard anything about Torchwood? I’m thrilled that Capt Jack is getting his own show, but rather annoyed by their categorical denial of show-crossover potential. Then again, Tennant is so damned pretty it might not be a good thing to bring him on the same screen as Barrowman. ;-)

  4. I wonder if the ratings are low because so many folks downloaded it last year. Considering the audience, this just goes to show that people want programming when they want it, not when some studio head decides that they can have it, and people will find a way that will cut out the middleman.

    The fact that Fox is now putting the older seasons on Alias online for free even with the DVDs out there is an interesting experiment, and one that I think is ultimatey going to reward them.
