Smithies, Don't Panic!

With news spreading far and wide of Doctor Who's 2009 'gap year' fans of this very site are reminded to keep calm. We don't know if the announcement will effect The Sarah Jane Adventures (or Torchwood) in any way - so don't go presuming that Doctor Who's hiatus means that Sarah Jane's spin-off has been cancelled beyond it's first or second seasons. Got that? Good, now where were we...?


Aside from the Doctor Who 'gap er' news item, today also saw the release of the classic series adventure "The Time Warrior" on DVD; and I'm pleased to say that I've got my copy already. The bonus features include an Elisabeth Sladen commentary, and a featurette on the making of the story (entitled "Beginning of the End"). The documentary looks at the casting of Sarah Jane Smith, and how Elisabeth Sladen developed her character behind the scenes.

Talking of Sarah Jane-centric DVDs, and Virgin Megastore has released the apparent cover for the DVD release of "Invasion of the Bane" - the pilot episode of the SJA. The DVD is expected to be a vanilla release, and retails at £12.99 when it hit shelves on October 29th. You can see the cover at the top of the page. Leave your reactions below.

Oh, and keep your eyes peeled folks - those trailers should be airing on CBBC any day now...
