Doctor Who Magazine 427
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!).
â€œItâ€™s incredible,â€ says Matt, or working with his two co-stars. â€œYou 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…â€
