Ahead of his final three episodes of Doctor Who, David Tennant is to guest star in a two-part story in the third series of Who spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures. Series creator and Executive Producer Russell T Davies promised viewers would be treated to “a full-on appearance for The Doctor as he and Sarah Jane face their biggest threat ever.”
The Sarah Jane Adventures stars Elisabeth Sladen as investigative journalist and former Doctor Who companion Sarah Jane Smith.
Sladen, who first starred in Doctor Who opposite Jon Pertwee in the 1970’s, said: “When I heard the news that David was going to be joining us I was absolutely over the moon. Not only has it made my day but it will also make the viewers’ day.”
“It’s fantastic news that Sarah Jane is going to spend some time working with The Doctor again and is testament to just how successful this CBBC series is.”
The upcoming third series sees the return of the Judoon, an encounter with monsters who want to infect Earth with a strangely aggressive weed and a chance for Sarah Jane to find personal happiness with someone who could be the perfect person to complete her family.
Davies commented: “Viewers thought they may have to wait until November for the next full episode of Doctor Who, but this is an extra special treat.”
