Welcome!

Welcome to Tardis Point News. This blog is no longer running, as I started watching Parks and Recreation and am still mourning over the cancellation of Eureka. Don't stop watching Doctor Who though, which is and always will be the best TV show ever.

Sarah Jane Adventures/Dreamland Crossover!

Phil Ford recently revealed that the first story of the third series of the Sarah Jane Adventures, Prisoner of the Judoon will have a direct link with the animated Doctor Who story, Dreamland, both written by Phil Ford. The screening of Prisoner of the Judoon was on in London followed by a Q&A session. It also included a trailer for the rest of the series, which will be on here as soon as possible. You can read the SFX article here.

Elizabeth Sladen, who plays Sarah Jane also gave a preview of the first 4 stories of the series.

Prisoner Of The Judoon, by Phil Ford.
“I love one and two, because I’m evil Sarah Jane, and I absolutely relished it – it’s great! I said to Phil Ford, ‘Why did you think I could do that?’ and he said, ‘It’s something you did or said last year’, so I thought ‘Oh… They do listen!”

The Mad Woman In The Attic, by Joseph Lidster
“Three and four my husband (Brian Miller) is in, which is brilliant. That was in the rain on Barry Island. If you’ve ever been on Barry Island, with or without rain, you would remember it. I got a chest infection on Barry Island! You look at it and you don’t see the terrible weather we had - it was a nightmare for poor Alice (Troughton, the director), it really was. And for the lighting guy. And of course this year we’re in HD for the first time. It’s a different kind of look and it looks so expensive – it’s wonderful, I’m so thrilled with it.”

The Wedding Of Sarah Jane Smith, by Gareth Roberts
“A great story. It’s by my lovely Gareth – he’s lovely because he knows Sarah so well, he knows Doctor Who so well. He puts little things in sometimes, where I look up from a read-through and maybe only he and I and Russell and someone else will spot them! It’s really nice to have those little moments.”

The Eternity Trap, by Phil Ford
“The haunted house one is incredibly scary - I mean I even screech in it when something happens! Danny (Anthony, who plays Clyde) went to the loo and he wouldn’t look in the mirror - when he came back out from washing his hands, he flew out!”


Series 3 of The Sarah Jane Adventures starts on BBC One and BBC HD on Thursday 15 October, with the second episode following the next day.

Prisoner of the Judoon Synopsis

The BBC Press Office has released the synopsis for the first story of the forthcoming third series of The Sarah Jane Adventures, Prisoner of the Judoon. You can read it below (It contains spoilers):



Prisoner of The Judoon - Part One

Investigative journalist Sarah Jane Smith, one-time companion to The Doctor, is back for a third series of alien-busting adventures, from creator Russell T Davies, which also features a special appearance from The Doctor himself, David Tennant, who stars in two episodes.

Sarah Jane is accompanied by her adopted son, Luke, his streetwise pal, Clyde Langer, their schoolmate, Rani, who lives opposite and has aspirations to become a journalist like Sarah Jane, and their Xylok super computer in the attic, Mr Smith. Sarah Jane's robot dog, K-9, also joins the gang on their adventures.

In the first of this two-part adventure, Sarah Jane and the gang face the most dangerous day of their lives, as the rhino-like Judoon return. When prisoner Androvax the Destroyer crash-lands on Earth, a Veil is set free and starts to turn Earth's technology against itself. And his next intended victim is Sarah Jane.

Prisoner of The Judoon - Part Two

Luke, Clyde and Rani fight their most fearsome enemy yet – Sarah Jane Smith – in the second episode of this two-part, alien-busting adventure.

As the Judoon fleet approaches Earth, it's a race against time to stop Androvax. But with Genetech's technology on the rampage, and Rani's parents taken prisoner, can anything stop the Army of the Infinitesimal?

Luke is played by Thomas Knight, Clyde by Daniel Anthony, Rani by Anjli Mohindra and Sarah Jane by Elisabeth Sladen.


The Sarah Jane Adventures starts on October 15th on BBC One with part 1 of this story, and part 2 on the day after, both on at 4:35 pm.
