The actor has also let slip a few details about the forthcomming episode Death of the Doctor - written by former Who head writer Russell T. Davies.
“There are rumours of the Doctor’s demise, which obviously cause Sarah Jane a great deal of concern and an understandable need to try to help by rushing to his side,” he explained. “It’s drama on a grand scale, with some tense scenes inside a secret base beneath Mount Snowdon.”
The Sarah Jane Adventures begins Monday, October 11th on BBC One.
