Kicking off at 4.35 on BBC One this Thursday, October 29th and concluding the same time on the following day, The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith sees the beginning of the countdown towards the end of David Tennant’s time in Doctor Who.

Elisabeth Sladen is joined not only by her regular excellent co-stars but also Nigel Havers as the super-suave Peter Dalton – a great setup for introducing the Doctor into proceedings that appear to be some sort of elaborate trap…

Lis Sladen and David Tennant as Sarah Jane Smith and the Doctor

Part 1 Synopsis:

Sarah Jane has met Peter Dalton and wants him to become part of her life, as the adventure series continues; perhaps he could become a father to Luke. But Clyde suspects that Peter is hiding a secret or two, especially when he and Rani find an empty house where Peter says his home should be.

The Doctor makes a spectacular return on the happiest day of Sarah Jane’s life but a deadly trap is awaiting them all.

As the strands of a clever and careful plan come together, can even a Time Lord save Sarah Jane on the day of her arch-enemy’s greatest triumph?

Part 2 Synopsis:

The Doctor joins the battle, as the power of the Pantheon Of Discord grows in strength, in the second and concluding part of this week’s story, but a deadly trap is waiting for them all.

The Doctor makes a spectacular return on the happiest day of Sarah Jane’s life, but is he too late to save both his old companion and Earth itself? As the strands of a clever and careful plan draw together, the two friends are separated across different time zones and must fight to save each other. For one, there’s a terrible price to pay.
