No Sarah Jane this September

It's now official: the third series of The Sarah Jane Adventures will break from tradition, by not airing in the latter half of September. We've come to expect the series launch on the last Monday of September for the past two years, but for 2009 - possibly to tie in with Doctor Who's Water of Mars in November - it seems that an October launch is now set in stone.

CBBC SJA LANYARD - I HAD TO BEG, STEAL & BORROW FOR THIS!

At the SJA event on Saturday, CBBC lanyards were given out to children in the audience. These had pieces of cards attached to them, which included information on various CBBC shows. The SJA segment reads:

Sarah Jane and her gang, Clyde, Luke and Rani, are back on TV this autumn for brand new escapades. They'll be battling Judoon, Slitheen and Blathereen non-stop in what's set to be endless action and adventure. And watch out for a very special guest star this series!

Brand new series starts this October, only on CBBC.

On top of that, at the end of today's CBBC marathon, the (pointlessly annoying) presenter revealed to the audience that October is indeed our date.

Several online sources - including DigitalSpy - are indicating that the third series hits our screens on Thursday October 15th. This would mean that The Wedding of Sarah Jane starring David Tennant will air mid-November, possibly just days before the next Doctor Who special - Waters of Mars, which was co-written by the SJA's Phil Ford.

Just over one month to go!

We know the Mona Lisa's coming to life in the third series, as played by Coronation Street's Suranne Jones - but have you seen this, the real Mona Lisa, coming alive in Japan...

Quick, somebody call our favourite journalist!

She has man hands :p

The October airdate's really intriguing, mostly 'cause this means the series is going to end around aboot Christmas! Fans are all abuzz about a potential Christmassy finale!

So is the 3rd series on the first Monday of October then? What time, do you know? If it's before 4pm I'm going to be so annoyed...

15th October = Thursday.

It won't be on before 4, probably the same time as last year 4:35 since CBBC ends earlier now than it did when series one was on.

See me on CBBc is coming to London too, at the Mayor's Thames festival. There are 9 different venues for it so they could be coming anywhere! XD So none of the cast were there, it was an acting thingy? The Blathereen are much cuter than the Slitheen!

No stars in Manchester sadly, they were there at last years Thames Festival though [Dan and Anj] but it was only a short interview segment: http://i26.tinypic.com/311xoxi.png

No cast at this years Thames Festival, sadly, from what I've heard :( But I'm goin' anyway :P

But if the Mona Lisa comes to life, she'll just have "This is a fake" written on her butt. Which is a terrible thing to do to the Monna!
