The BBC Press Office has released a press release for the Sarah Jane Adventures. In this release their are many spoilers. We find out that episode one is titled "Revenge Of The Slitheen" and information on that episode. Also there are 3 new pictures released which can be seen in this post.
The new series The Sarah Jane Adventures sees the return of some familiar alien enemies from Doctor Who as the Slitheen are back and out for revenge.
Coming to CBBC on BBC One and CBBC at the end of September 2007, The Sarah Jane Adventures stars one of Doctor Who's most famous former companions – investigative journalist Sarah Jane Smith.
The series is from the same people behind Doctor Who including multi-award winning writer Russell T Davies.
Having travelled the universe with The Doctor, Sarah Jane is used to dealing with alien encounters.
But when her young friends Maria, Luke and Clyde join her they soon become embroiled in a mysterious world of chases, danger, and monsters from outer space, discovering that life on Earth can be an adventure too.
In Revenge Of The Slitheen, the first two-part story from the new series, Maria, Luke and Clyde realise that all is not as it seems on their first day at their new school.
The food keeps going off, there's a funny smell and the new technology block is hiding some dark secrets. They soon find out that the Slitheen have disguised themselves as teachers as part of their deadly plan which threatens the future of Earth.
Will Sarah Jane and the gang be able to stop them all before it's too late?
Executive Producer Russell T Davies says: "This is a wonderful opportunity, to use all our Doctor Who resources here in Cardiff for the making of a brand new drama for CBBC.
"We hope brand new viewers join us for ten full-blooded episodes of excitement and danger, headlined by a truly excellent cast."
Sarah Jane Smith is played by Elisabeth Sladen who also starred as Sarah Jane in the Seventies Doctor Who series as a companion to the third and fourth Doctors.
Maria Jackson, Sarah Jane's neighbour and sidekick, is played by Yasmin Paige. Luke Smith, Sarah Jane's adopted son who was created by aliens, is played by Thomas Knight, and Daniel Anthony plays the streetwise Clyde.
Elisabeth Sladen says: "It's great to be back enjoying Sarah Jane with some fantastic new adventures. There's still so much more to find out about her after all these years.
"I hope that viewers have as much fun watching the series as I did making it."
The new ten-part series of The Sarah Jane Adventures features five stories each told over two episodes.

Thanks to Drwho-online for the pictures.
Sarah Jane Adventures airs sometime this Autumn. Those Slitheen pictures are really interesting and they look slightly different to the ones we saw in Doctor Who. The Slitheen baby is really cool too. I can't wait for Sarah Jane Adventures, Can You?
