The final episodes of The Sarah-Jane Adventures will be broadcast this autumn, the BBC has confirmed. Production on a fifth series of the Doctor Who spin-off was well underway when actress Elisabeth Sladen died in April.
Now, the three completed stories, six episodes in total, will be shown on CBBC this autumn, most likely October, according to Doctor Who Magazine.
Executive Producer Russell T Davies said: “We had completed only stories one, two and three from series five, each a two-parter in the traditional format. The first one is called Sky, by Phil Ford, the second is called The Curse Of Clyde Langer, also by Phil, and the third is The Man Who Wasn’t There by Gareth Roberts.
“All starring Lis alongside Daniel Anthony as Clyde, Anjli Mohindra as Rani, and with Tommy Knight returning as Luke for a full two-episode appearance in the last story – so the gang’s all together at the end.”
Meanwhile, Sladen‘s family have named the place to which people can donate should they wish to make a contribution in her memory. It is the Meadow House Hospice, ℅ Henry Paul, 71 Greenwood Avenue, Hanwell, London N7 1LJ.
