Sarah Jane news...look who's back!!!
Work is underway on the forthcoming fourth series of the Dr Who children's spin-off (watched, Stuff suspects, by significantly more adults than kids!) 'The Sarah Jane Adventures' for screening this autumn. News is fairly scant at the moment apart from one rather stunning announcement today regarding one two-part story, written by Russell T Davies him self,creator of the show and former showrunner of Dr Who. The story will not only feature a guest appearance by new Doctor Matt Smith but also a return to the Who fold, after an absence of 38 years, of none other than Katy Manning, reprising her role as third Doctor companion Jo Grant. Blimey. The story sees the Doctor, Sarah, Jo and Sarah's gang travelling to Snowdon - and then out into space - to battle the Shansheeth, vulture aliens (voiced by David Bradley) who are operating out of a big old underground base. Colour me rather excited!!!
Coming soon : review of this week's Dr Who yarn 'Victory of the Daleks'.
