Part One:
"In the first two-part adventure, The Nightmare Man, Sarah Jane's adopted son, Luke, faces life-changing events and Bannerman Road will never be the same again when he has his first nightmare and is haunted by a dark figure from his dreams. A strange entity is reaching out to our world, with terrible consequences for the whole human race.”

"With Luke, Clyde and Rani trapped in a bizarre dreamscape, Sarah Jane must fight alone in the concluding part of the first story in the fourth series of The Sarah Jane Adventures. As the Nightmare Man grows stronger, only K9 might hold the key, but can Luke summon the courage to face his adult life before the whole world becomes trapped in an endless nightmare?”

Matt Smith: “I won’t let Amy die!”

articleimage_354 As you probably remember, The Sun newspaper (pah!) put out a story that a so-called “insider” has confirmed to them that Amy Pond will die in the gripping finale climax to Series 6 of Doctor Who. Well, now Matt Smith has debunked the rumours with his declaration that he will not let Amy Pond die…

"She can't die. Amy Pond can't die. No way, I'd be sad. I'd miss Karen." He continued to add, "I just think for this particular Doctor - his bond with Amy - I think there's a lot more mileage in it yet. I think there's a long way to go. So I can't see it happening any time soon. Don't worry, I won't let it happen. I'll save her. I'll save the day!"

Series 6 is due to begin in Spring 2011 at Easter with a 7-episode run, as part of the famous series split, with the 6-episode Series 7 airing in Autumn 2011.

What are your thoughts on this? Are you happy Matt has debunked this rumour?

Matt Smith Talks SJA

articleimage_401 Matt Smith has spoken to SFX Magazine about his much-anticipated and much-awaited appearance in The Sarah Jane Adventures and revealed a few titbits of information on his two-part story ‘Death of the Doctor’:

“There are rumours of the Doctor’s demise, which obviously cause Sarah Jane a great deal of concern and an understandable need to try to help by rushing to his side. Even if it may be a trap…”

He added, “It’s drama on a grand scale, with some tense scenes inside a secret base beneath Mount Snowdon. We see the involvement of a formidable set of Vulture aliens, the Shansheeth. They are known as galactic coffin bearers, so make of their presence what you will!”

Matt continued to explain his reaction towards working with previous Doctor Who companions Liz Sladen and Katy Manning, “I did feel I was in the presence of Doctor Who royalty! Both their characters go back a long way and occasionally I’d be reminded of the show’s long and glorious past. There’s a scene where Sarah Jane makes reference to being stuck in a ventilation shaft, as she was during an adventure with a previous incarnation of the Doctor, and my character says, ‘That takes me back or maybe it takes me forward!’

The Sarah Jane Adventures returns to UK screens on CBBC on October 11th.

Series Five Lenticular DVD Box Set Cover


articleimage_347 2|entertain -  the bods who make all the Doctor Who DVDs for the new series and the classics – have revealed an animated image to show how the special lenticular cover for the Series Five DVD Box Set will look, as you can see below.


Lenticular covers have been made for Doctor Who DVDs before, but never with this kind of 3-D depth. Previously lenticular covers have only been used for the Series 4 box set and The Complete Specials, though each time it was just a 3-D shine-like effect.

The Doctor Who Series Five DVD Box Set is due for release on 8th November 2010 for £69.99.
