Mona Lizo

We're about half or hour or so away from Part One of The Mad Woman in the Attic as I write this. Oh, the anticipation! Why don't you use the comments section below to tell us what you thought of today's episode? I'll post the best reactions up on this site tomorrow, as a preview of the second episode...

For now, here's a selection of images from the adventure:


Meanwhile the BBC Press Office is looking ahead to episodes 9&10 by issuing synopsis for those particular episodes - which form the story Mona Lisa's Revenge.

Be warned, SPOILERS!

Part One - Strange forces bring the Mona Lisa to life. Clyde's proudest day turns into a nightmare when he discovers that fine art can be dangerous and, when a school trip descends into disaster, the gang find themselves trapped without Sarah Jane's help, as the awesome abomination stirs.

Part Two - Luke and Rani investigate the myth of the dreaded abomination. With Sarah Jane trapped and beyond help, everything now depends upon Clyde. Mona Lisa vows to release her terrifying brother from his age-old prison, but only Clyde has the key...

The cast list includes:

Sarah Jane Smith - Elisabeth Sladen
Mona Lisa - Suranne Jones
Clyde - Daniel Anthony
Tommy Knight - Luke Smith
Anjili Mohindra - Rani Chandra
Alexander Armstrong - Mr Smith
John Leeson - the voice of K9
Ace Bhatti - Haresh Chandra
Jeff Rawle - Mr Harding
Liza Sadovy - Miss Trupp
Lizo Mzimba - Himself
Paul Kasey - The Highwayman

As you can see, former-Newsround presenter and current BBC News Entertainment Corrospondent Lizo Mzimba guest stars in the episode, playing himself. It's not the first cameo appearence that the SJA has welcomed, mind... Remember the Blue Peter gang popping up on Maria's television screen in Invasion of the Bane?

The episodes air Thursday 12th and Friday 13th November.

In the meantime...

Remember!! The Mad Woman in the Attic - Part One airs at 4:35pm today on both BBC One and the BBC HD Channel. You can catch it on iPlayer over the next 7 days, too.
