I know it will not be the same without Elisabeth Sladen but a story with the kids dealing with her passing could do a lot of good for the fans. My 8 years old has asked a lot of questions and I feel it would do her good. I know Katy Manning does not have the same feeling toward Docotr Who as Ms. Sladen did but she has been in the show and would be a good person to pick up the show. Other options Susan could come back. My kids really like this show and there is so little sci-fi these days and even less that kids and adults can watch and enjoy.
