SJA Book Covers Revealed

Penguin Character Books have tantalised fans by released the book covers for two new Sarah Jane Adventure books The Nightmare Man and more excitingly, Death of the Doctor.

The artwork for the latter features Matt Smith in his tweaked costume and gives fans a first glimpse of the big bad for episodes 5-6 of the fourth series, the vulture-like Shansheeth.

Former Doctor Who executive producer/head writer Russell T. Davies is the writer of these episodes which feature Third Doctor companion Jo Grant (Katy Manning.) The novelisation was written by Torchwood script editor Gary Russell.

The Sarah Jane Adventures novelisations

The cover for The Nightmare Man features the character himself who bares a resemblance to the late Heath Ledger’s Joker. The episodes themselves were written by Joseph Lidster who also writes the novelisation.

Since 2010 The Sarah Jane Adventures have followed in the legendary footsteps of Target and entered into the novelisation business with the whole of the first series, two episodes from the second and a further two from the third all receiving adaptations.

The novelisation of The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith marked the first time the Doctor had appeared in the format since the adaptation of the TV Movie in 1996.

Both Death of the Doctor and The Nightmare Man will be released on the 4th November.

The fourth series of The Sarah Jane Adventures will air in the Autumn.

About the Author

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.
