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).
