Forwarded from a bud on a Lis Sladen email list...

In Ariel, the BBC's In-House Newspaper, today, apparently.

"CBBC is developing a spin-off series from Doctor Who based on the adventures of investigative journalist Sarah Jane, played by Elizabeth Sladen, and to be written by Russell T Davies. Sladen, who originally played the Doctor's assistant in 1973, returned for the last series where she was seen
[censored for series 27 2 spoiler that isn't even accurate]."

Someone was saying the version they heard mooted was that SJS is the lead investigator and takes more of a backseat role as the guiding light/friendly maternal figure etc etc. K9 is accompanied by two younger investigators, late teens/early 20s boy and girl combo. So the kids can enjoy the adventures of the young team and K9, while we still get SJS playing a key role but not being the main focus.

Certainly that sounds sensible.


Would rather have her as the main focus, m'self. But Sarah as The One What's In Charge certainly has its appeal...

Yeah, I rolled my eyes at that one. But it sounds like it's basically a souped-up corporate newsletter, so I'm sure it's not the worst error in the publication.

Because, obviously, an older woman wouldn't hold our lust attention. Sigh. Idiots. OMG SARAH.

Well, the implication seems to be that she wouldn't hold the attention of Them What's Too Young To Have Lust. About which I am also somewhat skeptical, but less so.
