My old pal Joe Nazzaro has got some more info about The Sarah Jane Adventures, over on SciFi Wire. Of note:
- The series proper starts filming in April
- Sarah Jane's sidekick is going to be her 13-year-old niece, not her neighbour
- RTD loves the Big Finish Sarah Jane stories, and although he won't acknowledge them in the TV series, he won't contradict them either
Still not sure if K9's going to be in the one-off special that will launch the series, thanks to contradictory reports, but it's pretty clear he won't be in the series itself. Instead, he's going to be in K9 Adventures (scroll down to find the plot).

More a talking point really since the news comes from the Daily Lies (sorry Daily Star), but the Lies has it that there's now a Doctor Who movie being planned that will feature Billie Piper. Since the Star web site is arse, here's the story, loving copied and pasted from somewhere else:
WHO THE MOVIE

Smash telly hit Dr Who is set to become a megabucks movie...and bring back sexy sidekick Billie Piper. Insiders say the flick will reunite assistant Rose Tyler with hunky time traveller David Tennant.
Producers came up with the idea after the BBC admitted the £10 million budget doesn't stretch to lavish sets for alien planets or even distant destinations on earth.
But after flogging the series to America they'd be able to raise hundreds of millions to make an all action film.
And the first star they want on board is Billie, 24, as feisty Rose - heart-breakingly seperated from 35 year old David in the last series and trapped in a parallel universe.

Variety confirms suspicions that Fox hasn't given up the ghost on Justice and is saving it from probable death at the hands of Lost. It seems Fox execs are learning patience.
I also fingered Standoff as another possible victim of early cancellation fever. Variety reveals that Standoff is now on unofficial hiatus since scripts are taking their time coming through. They're also adding Tim Minear as a consulting producer; Minear was consulting producer on Angel and also exec produced Wonderfalls and Firefly. Maybe he can make it interesting...
