Never to be Forgotten:
Sarah Marshall 1933-2014


Sarah Marshall, a British actress who worked in film, on TV and on the stage has died at the age of 80. She starred in the Twilight Zone episode "Little Girl Lost" as the mother of the title character and she played Dr. Janet Wallace on the Star Trek episode "The Deadly Years", where the entire away team catches some alien bug that makes them age rapidly. Yes, always a good idea to send the entire senior staff to an alien environment.

Regular readers will know that Star Trek and Twilight Zone are among the shows I consider seminal, so when any actor who had a lead role on either show dies, their work will be honored here.

Best wishes to the friends and family of Sarah Marshall, from a fan. She is never to be forgotten.

    Yes, all logical and good, but correcting that procedure sure made Riker into a nagging creep.

    1. You make an excellent point, Zombie, but each generation gets the Star Trek it deserves.

  2. DeForest Kelly did a great acting job in that episode as the doddering, palsied old man with fading memory.

    There's an entire film about her.

    Code 2, Lieutenant.
