The Stolen Earth – second last in Season 4, if I calculate correctly – screened last night. It was a fun romp and I enjoyed it as much as the rest of the new series, but something was missing.
As I was watching it, I was wondering who the kid was with Sarah Jane, and what was the deal with what looked like a big back-story. There was also interaction between Harriet Jones (ex-Prime Minister) and the Torchwood team that I wasn’t aware of from my previous viewing. Afterwards, I went looking and rediscovered something I’d seen rumours of a while back – The Sarah Jane Adventures. It’s aimed at an audience that seems more like that of the original Doctor Who (ie. younger than the current darker Doctors).
There’s also a second series of Torchwood, and neither it nor Sarah Jane have screened in Australia. No wonder I feel left out 🙁 I have Series 1 to 3 of the new Doctors, and series 1 of Torchwood on DVD (most of which I have yet to watch). Now I guess I need to buy Sarah Jane and Torchwood S2. It’ll be interesting to see the return of K9, and if the rumours are correct about the Brigadier coming back.
