The worlds classic and new Doctor Who collide when The Sarah Jane Adventures debuts at the end of September 2007 with legendary Doctor Who companion Sarah Jane Smith encountering the Slitheen.
In Revenge Of The Slitheen, the first two-part story from the new series, Maria, Luke and Clyde realise that all is not as it seems on their first day at their new school.
The food keeps going off, there’s a funny smell and the new technology block is hiding some dark secrets. They soon find out that the Slitheen have disguised themselves as teachers as part of their deadly plan which threatens the future of Earth.
Executive Producer Russell T Davies says: “This is a wonderful opportunity, to use all our Doctor Who resources here in Cardiff for the making of a brand new drama for CBBC.
“We hope brand new viewers join us for ten full-blooded episodes of excitement and danger, headlined by a truly excellent cast.”
The series stars Elisabeth Sladen who appeared in the 2006 Doctor Who episode School Reunion and also starred as Sarah Jane in the Seventies Doctor Who series as a companion to the third and fourth Doctors.
Sladen says “It’s great to be back enjoying Sarah Jane with some fantastic new adventures. There’s still so much more to find out about her after all these years”
