Death of the Doctor
In April, it was announced that Matt Smith would be guest appearing as the Doctor in Series Four of The Sarah Jane Adventures. Death of the Doctor is now the confirmed story title according to the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine (out today).
The story will comprise episodes five and six of the series and is written by Russell T Davies. Plot details are still thin on the ground, but we know it will feature a secret base beneath Snowdon and new alien race called the Shansheeth, who are described as ‘vulture undertakers’.
