A press pack for the second series of The Sarah Jane Adventures was recently released by the BBC and includes the synopses for the first four episodes. It also includes information about the main characters and broadcast dates for each of the episodes. You can view the synopses for the episodes below but please be aware that they do contain spoilers regarding the plot;

The Last Sontaran
By Phil Ford, Directed By Joss Agnew

Part Two - Sarah Jane and the gang have only 40 minutes to save Earth as Sontaran Commander Kaagh plots to bring the world's orbiting satellites crashing down on nuclear installations across the world. And Maria's Mum finally gets to the truth from Alan – but will they be in time to save Maria?

The Day Of The Clown
By Phil Ford, Directed By Michael Kerrigan

Part One - New girl in Bannerman Road, Rani Chandra, is being haunted by a sinister clown – does it have anything to do with the local children that have gone missing? When Clyde's friend disappears the trail leads them to a strange circus museum – and the legend of the Pied Piper!

Part Two - Sarah Jane's investigation into Spellman and Odd Bob the Clown takes her to a meteorite at the Pharos Institute. But Spellman's plot to make all of Park Vale's pupils vanish leads Sarah Jane into a confrontation with her own childhood fears in a bid to save Luke.

    So is Maria leaving the show after the first couple of episodes and being replaced by Rani?

    Thanks both of you.

    *Big Spoilers below*

    And yes Collin, she's leaving after the first story (first 2 eps) as Yasmin had to concentrate on her GCSE year when filming was taking place. I haven't mentioned it on the site as people might not want to know, it's quite a big spoiler you see ;)

    This sounds fantastic. I’m glad the Sontarans are returning. In my honest opinion they are the only Villains reinvented that didn’t lose any of there old ability to be ruthless. Cant wait for Series two of The Sarah Jane Adventures, its going to be fantastic.

Something to say?
