The Lost Boy Preview
The Sarah Jane Adventures enters it’s final story this week… and it seems that thing are never, ever what they seem in Sarah Jane’s world…
The Lost Boy is written by Phil Ford and broadcast this evening, Monday 19 November at 5pm on BBC One.
Sarah Jane and the gang face some old alien enemies again, along with an altogether unexpected foe, in the final two-part adventure of the series.
A news report on a couple looking for their missing son, Ashley, brings a surprise for Sarah Jane when she discovers that the missing boy looks exactly like Luke. And when Mr Smith, Sarah Jane’s super-computer, confirms that Luke is a genetic match with Ashley, Sarah Jane sends him back to live with his “parents”.
But, with no knowledge of his former life, Luke finds it hard to fit in and, when he tries to escape, he makes a startling discovery about who his parents really are.
Sarah Jane, meanwhile, makes some investigations into the Pharos Para-Science Institute â€“ a research unit that has been conducting experiments using alien technology.
Floella Benjamin guest stars as Professor Rivers in this episode. Sarah Jane Smith is played by Elisabeth Sladen, Ashley/Luke Smith by Thomas Knight, Maria Jackson by Yasmin Paige and Clyde by Daniel Anthony.
