The Thing About Lost Boys...

Thanks to a BBC Press Release we know have a short synopsis covering episode nine, the first part of "The Lost Boy" adventure. You can read the extract below - in invisotext to 'protect' any spoilerphobes out there. Run your mouse over the text and right click to highlight...

Sarah Jane and the gang face some old alien enemies again, along with an altogether unexpected foe, in the final two-part adventure of the series.

A news report on a couple looking for their missing son, Ashley, brings a surprise for Sarah Jane when she discovers that the missing boy looks exactly like Luke. And when Mr Smith, Sarah Jane's super-computer, confirms that Luke is a genetic match with Ashley, Sarah Jane sends him back to live with his "parents".

But, with no knowledge of his former life, Luke finds it hard to fit in and, when he tries to escape, he makes a startling discovery about who his parents really are.

Sarah Jane, meanwhile, makes some investigations into the Pharos Para-Science Institute – a research unit that has been conducting experiments using alien technology.

Floella Benjamin guest stars as Professor Rivers in this episode, which is written by Phil Ford.

"The Lost Boy" airs November/December - when all our questions will be answered.

In unrelated news, the ratings are in for this week's episodes. "Warrior of Kudlax - Part One" secured 1.o Million viewers on BBC One. The second half, which aired immediately after part one over on the CBBC Channel, was watched by 0.234 Million people. There wasn't a big enough selection of viewers to produce any AI data this week.

Don't forget that Lis Sladen will be signing copies of the SJA audio adventures in London (the Borders store on Oxford Street, to be exact). Pop along; buy a copy of the two CDs and get to meet and greet Miss Sladen. Sounds like a fair deal to me!
