Sarah Jane’s Comic Relief

Friday March 13th is Comic Relief Day – and the obligatory Doctor Who cross-over sees the cast of The Sarah Jane Adventures appearing in a charity short with British comedy actor Ronnie Corbett (The Two Ronnies, Sorry) on the BBC One evening of fundraising comedy mayhem.

Written by Gareth Roberts and former DWM editor Clayton Hickman, the skit will star Elisabeth Sladen, Tommy Knight, Daniel Anthony and Anjli Mohindra alongside Corbett and will be filmed in advance of a third series which begins production shortly.

Executive Producer Russell T Davies said, "It’s an honour to get involved with Red Nose Day, and with Ronnie Corbett, K-9 and an old enemy’s return, we can promise Sarah Jane Smith’s most extraordinary adventure yet!"

David Tennant will be on hand in the Comic Relief studio as a presenter on the night.
