The Doctor, Jo and Sarah!

The BBC have revealed that Matt Smith is set to make an appearance in The Sarah Jane Adventures – along with Katy Manning, former 1970s companion Jo Grant!

Set to air on CBBC this autumn, Sarah Jane Smith is thrown into action with former companion Jo Grant in a new series of The Sarah Jane Adventures in a special edition of the show penned by executive producer Russell T Davies – despite the former Doctor Who lead writer claiming he would never write a word of the Eleventh Doctor!

Sarah Jane Smith actress Elisabeth Sladen:

“It’s a fantastic script and I can’t wait to work with another Doctor and hope Matt has fun with us. I’ve known Katy for ages and I am delighted to be working with her. I last met her in LA but this time we will be in Cardiff. LA was good but Cardiff is better.”

Katy Manning has only recently returned to live in the UK after years in the USA and Australia, and has recently been appearing on stage in London.

“Playing Jo Grant again is something I never really considered. I was gob-smacked when they told me and I am over the moon. What an incredible little treat. I come home and this is one of the first things that happens.”

We’ll have more on this great news later!
