Whatever Happened to Sarah Jane?

Today sees the publication of the latest issue of Panini's monthly Doctor Who Magazine, which this month features some exclusive news regarding "The Sarah Jane Adventures". Not only does it confirm the DVD release of the series pilot, "Invasion of the Bane", on 29th October - but it brings us up to date on four of the series' five episode titles!

They are as follows (although the title to Adventure One is still missing because, according to Russell T Davies, "it gives too much away!"):

1: Title TBC

Directed by Alice Troughton

2: Eye of the Gorgon

Meanwhile in Russell T Davies monthly Production Notes column the executive producer talks about Magic Week - aka the one week in early July where all three Nu Who series were filming at the same time. That meant Sarah Jane, Doctor Who all inside Upper Boat at the same point in time! RTD goes on to give us clues about what to expect from all three shows - although it's up to you to decide which cryptic clue applies to The Sarah Jane Adventures...

"...bits of 1918, 2008, 51st Century, the oh-so-pivotal 1964. Extras passing to and fro, dressed as Stewards and World War One soldiers and Combat 3000 kids. Camera crews and riggers and sparks all treading sand into the complex, having been out in the wilds, recreating the Boeshane Peninsula. Madness!"

"It won't last long - the end of The Sarah Jane Adventures is now in sight, but look, right now - there she is, in that studio over there, the wonderful Lis Sladen, flawless on every take, fighting the villainous Mr Grantham, and his boss Kudlak, and his boss The Mistress."
