It's been a good 37 years since Katy Manning has played the role of Jo Grant and in the past she's often said that she would only return to the role if the character had shown any growth. Well, we'll see how much she's grown because she too is appearing in Series 4 of The Sarah Jane Adventures. Look at this nice new picture of both Elisabeth Sladen and Katy Manning side by side.
My only worry is that Amy is missing from proceedings, in spite of near confirmation that Karen Gillan will be reprising the role for Series 6 of Doctor Who. Still, Eleven, Jo and Sarah Jane battling monsters together is going to be awesome. Thank you, RTD.
Hopes for the two parter ...
- Hopefully the season opener or finale this time round.
- Both the Doctor and Jo appear early in the first episode and not the last two minutes.
- A good alien enemy to get into. Please no Slitheen/Blathereen for this one.
- Pure unadulterated awesomeness from Eleven, Sarah Jane and Jo of course.
