The Sarah Jane Adventures returns to CBBC with a host of guest stars, amazing monsters, and a visit from the Doctor

Alien investigator, Sarah Jane Smith, is back on CBBC with a fourth series of The Sarah Jane Adventures from Monday 11 October.

Created by Russell T Davies, the hugely successful Doctor Who spin-off sees Sarah Jane and her teenage gang set off on brand new adventures that take them out into space and back in time to face Nazi soldiers, a Victorian ghost-hunter, and turmoil in the Tower of London.

From their secret attic in Ealing the gang battle enemies old and new, including Androvax the veil, deadly androids, relentless robots and undertaker vultures. Luke confronts his worst dreams when he meets the Nightmare Man; Rani and Clyde wake up to find they are the only humans left on Earth; and in a very special episode, Sarah Jane joins forces with the Doctor’s former companion Jo Grant to uncover an interstellar conspiracy that threatens the life of the Doctor himself.

Elisabeth Sladen returns as intrepid investigative journalist Sarah Jane Smith alongside young stars Tommy Knight as Luke, Daniel Anthony as Clyde and Anjli Mohindra as Rani.

Ep 1 The Nightmare Man, Part 1 by Joseph Lidster

Luke faces life-changing events, and Bannerman Road will never be the same again. But when Sarah Jane’s son has his first nightmare, he’s haunted by a dark figure from his dreams. A strange entity is reaching out to our world, with terrible consequences for the whole human race.

Ep 2 The Nightmare Man, Part 2 by Joseph Lidster

With Luke, Clyde and Rani trapped in a bizarre dreamscape, Sarah Jane must fight alone! As the Nightmare Man grows stronger, only K-9 might hold the key. But can Luke summon the courage to face his adult life before the whole world is trapped in an endless nightmare?

Ep 3 The Vault Of Secrets, Part 1 by Phil Ford

When an old enemy, Androvax the Veil, returns to Earth, the gang face a dilemma – should they trust him? Or does the legendary Vault hold an even greater terror? But a second threat arises, when android guardians threaten to destroy anyone who uncovers their secrets.

Ep 4 The Vault Of Secrets, Part 2 by Phil Ford

As the battle between Sarah Jane, Androvax and the androids reaches its climax, Rani has to save her own mother from being caught in the crossfire. But as the Vault opens the destiny of the entire Veil species is at stake. Is it too late to save them?

Ep 5 Death Of The Doctor, Part 1 by Russell T Davies

When the Doctor is declared dead, old companions Sarah Jane and Jo Grant meet for the very first time, and join forces to discover the truth. As an interstellar conspiracy gathers around UNIT HQ, Clyde finds that he holds the fate of the Time Lord in his hand – quite literally!

Ep 6 Death Of The Doctor, Part 2 by Russell T Davies

Old friends fight together to make one last stand against the sinister Shansheeth. But with Clyde and Rani trapped in terrible danger, Sarah Jane and Jo Grant realise their worst fears – their friendship with the Doctor might be the very thing that dooms them.

Ep 7 The Empty Planet, Part 1 by Gareth Roberts

Clyde and Rani wake up one day to discover that they are the only survivors of the human race! The whole of Earth is empty – even Sarah Jane has vanished. But a deserted London holds terrors of its own. Strange forces lurk in the shadows, as mysterious visitors approach!

Ep 8 The Empty Planet, Part 2 by Gareth Roberts

Clyde and Rani meet their enemy, as the Robots arrive on Earth – but what do they want, and where has the human race gone? It’s a race against time, but without Sarah Jane’s expertise, Clyde and Rani must trust each other like never before if they’re to save the whole world.

Ep 9 Lost In Time, Part 1 by Rupert Laight

A harmless investigation turns into an epic quest across time and space. Sarah Jane and the gang are separated by the enigmatic Shopkeeper, and find themselves in three different time-zones throughout history – doing battle against ghost hunters, Nazis, Tudors and a mysterious parrot called Captain!

Ep 10 Lost In Time, Part 2 by Rupert Laight

While Sarah Jane tries to prevent a future tragedy, Clyde has to take on the Third Reich single-handed! But Rani discovers to her horror that the march of history cannot be stopped, as a greater danger from the Time Vortex threatens to consume them all.

Ep 11 Goodbye, Sarah Jane Smith, Part 1 by Clayton Hickman & Gareth Roberts

Sarah Jane faces her saddest day, as she realises that no one can defend the Earth forever. She’s saved the world so many times, but must now hand over the task to safer hands. Clyde and Rani are distraught, and the forces of darkness gather as the inevitable day approaches.

Ep 12 Goodbye, Sarah Jane Smith, Part 2 by Clayton Hickman & Gareth Roberts

Sarah Jane has gone – but a new regime begins at Bannerman Road! Clyde and Rani must face the fact that nothing lasts forever – but can they still unite as a team, to face a new and deadly threat from outer space? Or is the old gang finished for good?

    This series looks really good. I really can’t wait for death of the Doctor, and the rest of the series.

    The last epsidoe sounds really sad, but i can’t wait for the series to start on Monday 11th October 2010 at 5:15 on the CBBC Channel.

    There’s also the nightmare man pictures at and click on the attic.

    Yeah it’s not ending but it’s meant to be a tear jerker .
    Also Liz said she’s never going to leave Doctor Who until it is axed.
    But this Series looks the best by far

    I have been on LOADS of sites and on nearly all of them they say that episode four of series 6 of doctor who is called What are Little Boys Made of? and that it will be part two of a story meaning for the first time the first two parter will be episodes 3 and 4. This is probably because if episodes 4&5 were continuing then 6&7 (the mid season final) would also be a two parter. (which they never do). The monsters in episode 4 are meant to be menacing china dolls (like Chucky)!
