Nikki Wilson On Sarah Jane Series Four

Producer of hit children's Doctor Who spin-off series, The Sarah Jane Adventures, Nikki Wilson, has spoken to Digital Spy about the fourth series of the show. In the interview, she speaks about the things she mentioned in the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine in more detail, including the team's first visit to another world. Interview extracts can be read below:

What can you tell us about the Nightmare Man and the Shansheeth?
"The Nightmare Man is part of a really big emotional journey for Luke which involves him facing his fears and excitement about the future. The Shansheeth are vulture undertakers who get embroiled with the gang on a big adventure for the middle of the series."

What about the group will be visiting an alien world for the first time...
"It's part of a bigger episode - we're not setting a whole two episodes on an adventure off Earth so it's fairly containable. With Sarah Jane it's very much rooted in contemporary London and Bannerman Road will always be the heart of the show. We're not Doctor Who so we don't go flying off around the universe but this is an opportunity for us to get a glimpse of that."

The fourth series of The Sarah Jane Adventures is now under production, with filming set to start at the end of the month, and the series itself is expected to be broadcast on BBC One and in high definition on the BBC HD channel this Autumn.
