October Start for Sarah Jane?

Series 4 of The Sarah Jane Adventures is due to air in the Autumn, and rumours online suggest that Monday, October 11th will be the day to mark in your diaries!

The first of two simultaneously-commissioned series (with another, likely final, run of 12 episodes in 2011), the fourth run of the show looks feature packed, with a return of several villains from the series as well as yet another appearance from the Doctor himself – only this time around, it’s the Eleventh Doctor in Death of the Doctor!

Also worth looking out for will be Katy Manning, reprising the role of Third Doctor companion Jo Grant on screen for the first time since 1973, in the same episode!

So with Sarah Jane, Luke, Clyde and Rani – not to mention Mr Smith and K-9 – ready to save the world again in just a few weeks time, keep an eye open for more and more promotional trailers and images between now and then!

    Where did you get the idea that next year’s series will be the last? When the BBC announced the timeframe for completion of the Cardiff studios, they said Sarah Jane will be shifting production there in 2011 or 2012. That doesn’t sound like they’re planning to end the series anytime soon.

  2. Hi 23skidoo

    It’s not so much an idea as a feeling – those kids are growing up, and Lis Sladen, god bless her, can’t play the part for ever. While it would be good to see the show carry on and on, it clearly has a limited shelf life, and 5 years is a nice round number, as RTD himself would agree – it suited him for Doctor Who, after all.
