Writer of the current Sarah Jane Adventure The Last Sontaran Phil Ford has praised his guest star, actor Anthony O’Donnell.
The series returned on Monday to a good reception in a series that will also feature a new companion.
"Commander Kaagh is the last survivor of the task force that attacked Earth in ‘The Sontaran Stratagem’… [and] we haven’t seen a Sontaran like this before," he told Doctor Who Magazine. "He’s got a few tricks up his sleeve and he was just fantastic to write for."
"Personally I think he’s the best Sontaran that we’ve ever seen in the Doctor Who world," Ford added, before describing Kaagh actor Anthony O’Donnell’s performance as "fantastic… he is an amazing Sontaran".
Let’s hope that he isn’t genuinely The Last Sontaran. Sarah Jane Adventures airs at 4.35pm on a Monday evening on BBC One – the following installment comes either by flicking channels to CBBC if you have digital, or waiting a week.
The Last Sontaran concludes on terrestrial TV on Monday 6th October.
