Don’t read too much into this – but note the SPOILER warning above. That means, spoilerphobes, that you really, REALLY shouldn’t come any further for risk of spoiling a very pleasant surprise in a future episode…
So, although reports have yet to be confirmed by the BBC, it would appear that (right-click and drag) Nicholas Courtney has returned to the Doctor Who universe at last!
On-set photographs from the second production run of The Sarah Jane Adventures show our heroine alongside (right-click and drag) UNIT’s greatest leader, Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart.
Not only that, but he’s also rumoured to be on hand to defeat a particularly squat and often visually identical alien race, while Invasion of the Bane villainess Miss Wormwood is also on the cards for a return.
Sadly though, it seems that the entertaining characters of Maria Jackson, her dad and hilariously selfish estranged mother are set to leave.
