Smith talks Death of the Doctor
Matt Smith has revealed some more details on Death of the Doctor, his upcoming Sarah Jane Adventures story.
Smith explained the plot to SFX, “There are rumours of the Doctor’s demise, which obviously cause Sarah Jane a great deal of concern and an understandable need to try to help by rushing to his side. Even if it may be a trap…”
He added, “It’s drama on a grand scale, with some tense scenes inside a secret base beneath Mount Snowdon. We see the involvement of a formidable set of Vulture aliens, the Shansheeth. They are known as galactic coffin bearers, so make of their presence what you will!”
Smith also said he felt privileged to be acting alongside Sarah Jane (Elisabeth Sladen) and Jo Grant (Katy Manning), “I did feel I was in the presence of Doctor Who royalty! Both their characters go back a long way and occasionally I’d be reminded of the show’s long and glorious past. There’s a scene where Sarah Jane makes reference to being stuck in a ventilation shaft, as she was during an adventure with a previous incarnation of the Doct0r, and my character says, ‘That takes me back or maybe it takes me forward!’
The fourth series of The Sarah Jane Adventures begins Monday 11th October on CBBC.
