Eleanor, 14, Pershore

"I can't believe she has gone. She was one of the first companions I watched and I then decided she was the best companion. I loved watching her in the Sarah Jane adventures, and I never would have guessed she was 63. She didn't look ill and she always made me laugh. I hope they show the episodes they recorded with her in, so they can show how amazing she is. She will always be remembered, but I was so devastated when I had heard she had gone.
