The hour long first episode of The Sarah Jane Adventures will air on New Year’s Day (Monday 1 January) at 16:50.
Entitled ‘Invasion Of The Bane’ the episode promises to ensure “children never look at fizzy drinks in the same way again”.
The previously reported plot synopsis reveals:
“Sarah Jane is fascinated by Bubbleshock, a strangely addictive organic drink that is taking the world by storm. She is almost oblivious to the arrival of her new neighbour, Maria, a young girl starting a new life with her father.
Maria becomes intrigued by the strange goings on at Sarah Jane’s house but, before she can investigate, she’s whisked away by her new friend, Kelsey, to the brightly coloured, but sinister, Bubbleshock factory.
As Sarah Jane tries to find out what the mysterious Mrs Wormwood is doing at the factory, Maria and Kelsey embark on a tour which leads them into the path of a monstrous creature and a strange young boy with no name or past.”
When Sarah Jane and Maria discover the secret ingredient of Bubbleshock, they realise they are the only ones who can stop Mrs Wormwood and her evil plans for the human race.”
