SFX Elisabeth Sladen Interview

SFX have now updated their official website with a preview of their upcoming interview with Elisabeth Sladen, which will feature in full in the next issue of SFX Magazine. In the preview, Elisabeth discusses the first four stories from the third series of The Sarah Jane Adventures, and somethings that happened during production. The preview can be read below:

Prisoner Of The Judoon

"I love one and two, because I’m evil Sarah Jane, and I absolutely relished it – it’s great! I said to Phil Ford, ‘Why did you think I could do that?’ and he said, ‘It’s something you did or said last year’, so I thought ‘Oh… They do listen!”

The Mad Woman In The Attic
“Three and four my husband [Brian Miller] is in, which is brilliant. That was in the rain on Barry Island. If you’ve ever been on Barry Island, with or without rain, you would remember it. I got a chest infection on Barry Island! You look at it and you don’t see the terrible weather we had - it was a nightmare for poor Alice [Troughton, the director], it really was. And for the lighting guy. And of course this year we’re in HD for the first time. It’s a different kind of look and it looks so expensive – it’s wonderful, I’m so thrilled with it.”

The Wedding Of Sarah Jane Smith
“A great story. It’s by my lovely Gareth – he’s lovely because he knows Sarah so well, he knows Doctor Who so well. He puts little things in sometimes, where I look up from a read-through and maybe only he and I and Russell and someone else will spot them! It’s really nice to have those little moments.”

The Eternity Trap
“The haunted house one is incredibly scary - I mean I even screech in it when something happens! Danny [Anthony, who plays Clyde] went to the loo and he wouldn’t look in the mirror - when he came back out from washing his hands, he flew out!”

The interview will be available to read in full in issue 190 of SFX Magazine, which will go on sale across the United Kingdom and Ireland on Wednesday the 18th of November, at a price of £3.99. The Sarah Jane Adventures will return for it's third series on Thursday the 15th of October and stars Elisabeth Sladen, Thomas Knight, Daniel Anthony, and Anjili Mohindra. What do you think of this?

I think Series 3 will be amazing :) It certainly sounds it. I think Series 1 has been the best so far...
