Doctor Who Magazine 427

Matt Smith, Elisabeth Sladen, Katy Manning and Russell T Davies talk exclusively to Doctor Who Magazine about Death of the Doctor!

DEATH OF THE DOCTOR is a brand new story for THE SARAH JANE ADVENTURES, starring ELISABETH SLADEN and written by RUSSELL T DAVIES. The story features not only MATT SMITH as the Doctor, but also the return of KATY MANNING as Jo Jones (nee Grant!).

“It’s incredible,” says Matt, or working with his two co-stars. “You realise what a wonderful legacy you are part of, and how much it affects people. Just the very notion of the Doctor and the companion. It makes me feel quite warm that I get to work with two companions who have worked with two really great Doctors…”
