Unveiling Bea...

Yesterday's edition of The Sun newspaper had some interesting casting news with regard to a future episode of The Sarah Jane Adventures (spoiler-phobes look away now!) Floella Benjamin, a legend of children's television who presented Play School back in the 1980's, will appear in the series (with fellow Play School-er Phyllida Law) playing Bea Nelson Stanley who "guards an alien talisman in episodes three and four."

Other newspapers have been busy reviewing the series. Click on the links below to read the full articles:

The Stage, The Daily Telegraph, The Times and the Dreamwatch news-site. Meanwhile there's several reviews to be found over on the Behind the Sofa blog.

The newly published Radio Times, covering all TV and Radio listings for next week, has gone on sale. It includes a short behind the scenes section on The Sarah Jane Adventures, which examines how the Slitheen were brought back to our screens. The men behind the masks, Paul Kasey and Jimmy Vee, are interviewed about their roles. The magazine is available in practically every newsagents in Britain, priced one pound.

Meanwhile the younger stars have been interviewed by CBBC's own news network, Newsround. Yasmin Paige, Thomas Knight and newcomer Daniel Anthony all talk about their roles, and what it's like appearing in CBBC's new hotshot drama.
