SJA Series 4 Titles

Episode titles for the fourth season of The Sarah Jane Adventures have been revealed by Doctor Who Magazine.

The following six two-part episodes will air this autumn on BBC One and the CBBC channel.

The Sarah Jane Advenures* S04E01/E02: The Nightmare Man by Joseph Lidster
* S04E03/E04: The Vault of Secrets by Phil Ford
* S04E05/E06: Death of the Doctor by Russell T Davies
* S04E07/E08: The Empty Planet by Gareth Roberts
* S04E09/E10: Lost in Time by Rupert Laight
* S04E11/E12: Goodbye, Sarah Jane Smith by Gareth Roberts and Clayton Hickman

In April it was announced that Russell T. Davies would return to the Whoniverse with Death of the Doctor. Details have been sketchy although what has been confirmed is that joining Matt Smith’s Doctor will be Third Doctor companion Jo Grant (Katy Manning) in an episode which features a secret base beneath Snowdon and a new alien race called the Shansheeth, who are described as ‘vulture undertakers’.

For the first time in the series the group of Sarah, Luke, Clyde and Rani, will travel to an alien world – breaking the Judoons confinement of Rani and Clyde to Earth.

The final episodes will also see the return of The Trickster last seen in The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith which featured the Tenth Doctor.

Anyone concern at the title of ‘Goodbye, Sarah Jane Smith’ need not panic as a fifth series has already been commissioned.

It is also rumoured that series four will see Luke leave the fold, to be replaced by a younger girl though being as he is Sarah’s son, it probably won’t be for long. His disappearance maybe at the hands of the Nightmare Man who is played by the one-time Davros, Julian Bleach.

Other guest stars include: Cheryl Campbell (Pennies from Heaven, Spooks, Peep Show) will play Ocean Waters in the Vault of Secrets, Cyril Nri (This Life, Survivor) plays a shopkeeper in Lost in Time and Julie Graham (Survivors and At Home with the Braithwaite’s with Fifth Doctor Peter Davison) will play Ruby White in the finale Goodbye, Sarah Jane Smith.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.

    All sounds good. Didn’t know Julie Graham was guesting. I like her in most things.

    Looking forward to seeing Matt interact with Liz but in particular Katy Manning. Both have a habit of camping things up a bit so it should be interesting.

    Great that the Trickster is turning up again-would love to see him in the main series sometime.
