Eliazbeth Sladen Interview

Elizabeth Sladen, star of The Sarah Jane Adventures, recently spoke to The Daily Telegraph newspaper about her role in her new series. She tells journalist Simon Swift: "I did that episode, School Reunion, and I thought what a lovely end for my character... Then, as Torchwood was coming out, I got a call saying Russell [T Davies - Doctor Who's executive producer] would like to take me out for lunch to talk about something else. I thought, 'I'm going to be in Torchwood.' And he said: 'We want to do a series called The Sarah Jane Adventures.' I absolutely didn't see it coming." She then goes on to say that had the spin-off project gone to any other former companion she would have been annoyed.

"I would be p***** off to my socks. I would have said, 'Well, they know what they're doing,' but I would have secretly thought, 'Oh, what a mistake they've made'."

The Sarah Jane Adventures airs on Monday 24th Spetember at 5.00pm on the CBBC Channel so dont miss it.
