Sarah Jane Investigates...

Welcome to what is (hopefully) the first website dedicated entirely to Doctor Who's second spin-off series, "The Sarah Jane Adventures".

Readers of our sister site, Torchwood.tv will recognise our friendly, interactive approach to writing. We're a site that loves to hear what it's readers have to say - so please get in touch with us over the coming months.Anyway... Moving swiftly onto the important stuff, "The Sarah-Jane Adventures" is the new spin-off series from the team behind BBC Wales.

Anyways, onto the important stuff:

The latest issue of DWM confirms what fans have been saying for months already: Elisabeth Sladen's character 'Sarah Jane Smith', former companion to the Doctor, is getting her own series for Children's BBC.

The series is called "Sarah Jane Investigates" and will be created as a one hour pilot episode, forecast to air around New Year's Day over here in the UK. If that's susscessful, no doubt a full series will follow - no doubt on CBBC itself.

The pilot episode (25 years on from k9 and Company) will be written by Russell T Davies and Gareth Roberts, and will be directed by Torchwood's very own Colin Teague. The producer is Susie Liggat.
Although the series doesn't really cover Torchwood.tv's remit, we'll be sure to keep you guys updated on what will one day be known as Doctor Who's second best spin-off (following Torchwood of course).

So, how bout it, 40 episodes of Doctor Who related fun next year? I'm in Heaven!

So stick with Sarah-Jane.tv over the coming months. Hopefully Torchwood will show us how great Doctor Who spin-offs can be. I'm willing to bet that Sarah-Jane will be as good as the other two sister shows. I guess we'll find out soon enough...Well, it can't be any worse than k9 and Company, can it?
