DOCTOR WHO spin-off THE SARAH JANE ADVENTURES, though not currently being shown in the U.S., offered several more tidits about the Doctor’s future.
Sarah Jane Smith (Liz Sladen) was the companion to Doctors 4 & 5. The new season of her own show will feature a guest appearance from the 11th Doctor (Matt Smith). It’s in a two-part episode called Death of the Doctor, and also features former companion Jo Grant (Katy Manning) who last appeared on DOCTOR WHO with John Pertwee in 1973.
In Death of the Doctor viewers will see, according to UK site DigitalSpy:
1. Doctors 1, 2, 3, 4, 10 and 11 all make an appearance.
2. There’s mentions of Axons, Azal and Aggedor.
3. “Smells like roast chicken!”
4. The Brigadier is still stranded in Peru, while Liz Shaw is on the Moon.
5. That’s Groske, not Graske.
6. The Doctor doesn’t have to be white. And he can regenerate more than 12 times – a lot more!
7. “You look like someone’s baked you!”
8. Jo Jones (née Grant) has 7 children and (almost) 13 grandchildren.
9. The Doctor might never look back, but Sarah Jane has discovered some interesting things using Google.
10. “Accelerate the weave!”
THE SARAH JANE ADVENTURES airs on the BBC’s CBBC, their childrens’ channel. Though the first season of the fairly charming half-hour shows was broadcast in the US by the fromer Sci-Fi Channel, SARAH JANE is not currently being carried by any nationwide US station.
