The new web site for the next Doctor Who spinoff, The Sarah Jane Adventures, is now online. The new show, aimed as a children’s show and featuring Elizabeth Sladen as former companion Sarah Jane Smith, debuts on Monday, September 24th, on BBC One. No word on whether BBC America or another network may pick up the show in the U.S. Torchwood is now airing on BBC America, as is the 2nd series of Doctor Who while the SCI FI Channel has the 3rd series, and I only just learned that a local PBS station (WENH in New Hampshire, always friendly to Who fans) just completed airing the 1st series.
The Producer writes “The television crew from Sci Fi Central have just returned from an unprecedented tour of Lucasfilm and Skywalker Ranch where we have filmed segments for our new TV series.
We have filmed Star Wars actress Bonnie Piesse who hosts our show, plus DJ interviews Skywalker Sound?s Matthew Wood (the voice of General Grievous) and Producer Rick McCallum.
We had a fantastic 45 minute talk with Rick in which he talks about everything from his early career as a Producer to the prospect of George?s son Jett Lucas coming up with his own story ideas and whether Darth Vader may or may not be in the television series.”
