Death Of The Doctor - Preview

There's only four days to go but here are some nice promotional pictures for the muchly anticipated story of The Sarah Jane Adventures called Death Of The Doctor.

I love this cast picture of Sarah Jane (Elisabeth Sladen), the Doctor (Matt Smith) and Jo Grant (Katy Manning). Matt Smith just works with everyone nowadays.

This story is making sure that UNIT are represented with Tia Karim (Laila Rouss), the woman responsible for informing both Sarah Jane and Jo that the Doctor happens to be dead. Except he's not and both ladies are being put into a trap by the Shansheeth.

Okay, so they're not visually the most impressive of monsters but apparently the Shansheeth are more than just intergalactic undertakers - they want the means of time travel and using Sarah Jane and Jo's respective memories of their time with the Doctor is a means of achieving it. Oh and Clyde is instrumental to the Doctor in this story in a pretty unique way.

And this lad here is Santiago Jones (Finn Jones), the grandson of Jo and being wisened to the fact that monsters exist. I can't wait to see how he interacts with Clyde, Rani and the Doctor. Speaking of the Doctor, it seems that the regeneration limit is due to be tackled in this story, there's also a fair chunk of past references and Amy and Rory's absences are also addressed too. Overall, it look like RTD is going to give us quite a classic story here.

Death Of The Doctor airs Monday/Tuesday at 5.15pm on CBBC from October 25th and Wednesday/Thursday at 4.30pm on BBC1 from October 27th.

Ok, I`m not a fan f Sarah Jane, but I`ve got to watch this...
I guess that as the Doc tends to visit her rather a lot, I`m gonna have to start watching it all.

So far the Doctor's only appeared twice on SJA - 10th Doctor in The Wedding Of Sarah Jane Smith (Season 3) and 11th Doctor in Death Of The Doctor (Season 4).
