Sarah Jane faces Doctor's enemies

A Slitheen

Doctor Who may be taking some time off, but a few of The Doctor's old enemies are sticking around for a new series starring one of his old companions.

The Sarah Jane Adventures will see investigative journalist Sarah Jane Smith fighting aliens with the help of her 13-year-old neighbour, Maria.

Sarah Jane travelled with The Doctor in the 70s so she's used to seeing aliens but is she ready to face the Slitheen?

You can find out in the first two-part story of the series later this month.

In Revenge of the Slitheen, Sarah Jane's young friends Maria, Clyde and Luke realise all is not as it seems on their first day at their new school.
