Ugly Slitheen

With less than 24 hours to go before the series launch of "The Sarah Jane Adventures" things are getting exciting. On a personal level I've spent today re-watching a couple of classic Sarah Jane Smith adventures, including "The Time Warrior" and "School Reunion". Bring on the new adventures I say - mostly 'cos we've waited long enough for them!!

Lizo from Newsround is one of the lucky few who has actually seen the first episode and he's kindly written a write-up for it on the CBBC website; "There are two things that make the Sarah Jane Adventures special. Firstly, the spot-on performance from the kids - Yasmin Paige, Thomas Knight and Daniel Anthony. Secondly, this episode's sparkling script from Gareth Roberts, who penned this year's Shakespeare Doctor Who episode.

It has just the right balance of scares and laughs and surprises. It's a great start, and hopefully the high standard will be maintained right the way through the series' 10 episodes."

You can read the full review here.

Yesterday morning Lis Sladen appeared on Eamonn Holmes Radio 5 show (9am). Lis talked about the new series, and what it was like to return to a character she th she'd left behind 30 years ago.

So, the interesting part - how are you preparing for the series tomorrow? Have you re-watched any classic adventures like me, or are you throwing a silly (but very fun!) launch party? Are you going to watch episode one on its own, or will you flick over to the CBBC Channel to catch the second part? Let us know in the comments section below!
