Sarah Jane Adventures Series 3 Debuts in October
The 3rd series of The Sarah Jane Adventures is due to premiere on CBBC in October, not in September as we were previously led to believe. The Doctor Who spin-off series starring Elisabeth Sladen begins its 3rd series on CBBC in October (the exact date is still not known at this time though they have been unconfirmed reports on the net indicating the 15th of October). This is according to Sarah-Jane.tv, a blog devoted to the series which obtained a lanyard badge given out to children at a Sarah Jane Adventures event hosted by the CBBC which has the following printed on them:
Brand new series starts this October, only on CBBC.
This is also interesting because according to a Digital Spy article siting Doctor Who Magazine, the series was expected to be transmitted on BBC One and CBBC.
As previously reported, David Tennant is to make guest appearance in two episodes (one story) and Nigel Havers has a guest role as well. It also revealed the episode title names for the third series.
SPOILER WARNING: Do not read the episode names if you do not wish to have anything given away...
The episode story titles are as follows for series 3 (remember that there are two episodes for each story):
- Episodes 1 & 2: 'Prisoner of the Judoon'
- Episodes 3 & 4: 'The Mad Woman in the Attic'
- Episodes 5 & 6: 'The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith'
- Episodes 7 & 8: 'The Eternity Trap'
- Episodes 9 & 10: 'Mona Lisa's Revenge'
- Episodes 11 & 12: 'The Gift'
Another well known actor to Doctor Who fans of late is Nicholas Briggs who will guest star in the first story.
