    Nice to see the US TV community & UK's Doctor Who, who came together in tribute, in the form of #SlatesforSarah (see below)

    US born, 27-year-old Sarah Jones, a 2nd Assistant Camera (AC), who had worked on shows like CW's The Vampire Diaries & The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot, was tragically killed last week on set after being struck by a freight train whilst working on the movie Midnight Rider (The life story of musician Gregg Allman). Several other crew also suffered injuries and were taken to the hospital.

    A petition to add late camera assistant Sarah Jones to the “In Memoriam” tribute at Sunday’s Academy Awards surpassed more than 23,000 signatures Wednesday morning.

    I read the story on teletext of an unnamed person having being killed on this production. I have to confess I didn't know the name but I loved The Five(ish) Doctors.

    RIP Sarah

    I'm going to be a bit unpopular and point that no-one was supposed to be on the track - so who was in charge?
    Too many chances are taken with other like her.
    RIP Sarah.
