Next month the former Doctor Who executive producer and good friend of the late Lis Sladen, Edward Russell, will be doing a 160 mile walk from Cardiff to London. He will be setting off from the studios where The Sarah Jane Adventures was filmed in Cardiff and stopping at the BBC Televison Centre where Lis first filmed scenes for Doctor Who many years ago in London. The walk is to raise money for Meadow House Hospice, a facility which cared for Elisabeth earlier this year.
Like many of her fans and friends, I was deeply saddened by Lis' death in April 2011 and I hope to raise as much money as possible for this wonderful cause. Starting on Saturday 3 September, I will walk from the BBC's Upper Boat studios in Cardiff (where SJA was filmed), aiming to arrive at the BBC Television Centre (where Lis first filmed Doctor Who) in London the following Friday. I will largely be following the National Cycling Route No. 4 - walking the equivellent of a marathan every day!
