By Mark
The BBC have today published a new press release about the upcoming third series of The Sarah Jane Adventures and the article reveals some interesting information about some of the aliens that Sarah Jane and her team will encounter. We now know that the Judoon, who were first seen in 'Smith and Jones' and most recently seen in 'The Stolen Earth', will be making an appearance in one of the stories and the full press release can be viewed below;

Doctor Who fans are in for a treat this Autumn as David Tennant makes a special appearance as The Doctor in CBBC's hit drama series The Sarah Jane Adventures with a starring role across two episodes.

Investigative journalist Sarah Jane Smith, one-time companion to that strange wanderer in time and space known as The Doctor, is reunited with her old friend as The Sarah Jane Adventures is back for a third series of alien-busting adventures on CBBC this September.

Elisabeth Sladen, who plays Sarah Jane, says: "When I heard the news that David was going to be joining us I was absolutely over the moon. Not only has it made my day but it will also make the viewers' day.

"It's fantastic news that Sarah Jane is going to spend some time working with The Doctor again and is testament to just how successful this CBBC series is."

Russell T Davies, Executive Producer of The Sarah Jane Adventures, adds: "Viewers thought they may have to wait until November for the next full episode of Doctor Who, but this is an extra special treat.

"And it's not just a cameo from David – this is a full-on appearance for The Doctor as he and Sarah Jane face their biggest threat ever."

The series includes 12 weeks of brand new adventures featuring a new alien race, the reptilian Veil and their enemies the Judoon, alongside an extraterrestrial girl that can make people play games against their will.

There will also be a living painting, the inhabitants of a supposedly haunted house, monsters who want to infect Earth with a strangely aggressive weed and a chance for Sarah Jane to find personal happiness with someone who could be the perfect person to complete her family.

Alongside adopted son Luke, Sarah Jane's team is made up of Luke's streetwise pal Clyde Langer, their schoolmate Rani, who lives opposite and has aspirations to become a journalist like Sarah Jane, and Mr Smith, their Xylok supercomputer up in the attic, plus Sarah Jane's robot dog, K-9.

The Sarah Jane Adventures series three is currently being filmed and it's expected for transmission on BBC One in Autumn this year. Elisabeth Sladen will reprise her role as Sarah Jane Smith and David Tennant will make an appearance in two episodes as the 10th Doctor. Thomas Knight, Daniel Anthony and Anjili Mohindra will also return to play their respective characters; Luke, Clyde and Rani. More information about the third series of The Sarah Jane Adventures will be posted here on this site as soon as it is announced and becomes available.

    This seems like a great opportunity for BBC Films to make a new/ modern version of a Doctor Who film.
