BBC confirms ‘The Sarah Jane Adventures’ future plans

Posted Filed under

The statement reads: “Contrary to press reports today we can confirm that no new episodes of The Sarah Jane Adventures will be filmed following the tragic death of actress Elisabeth Sladen in April, 2011. As a tribute to Elisabeth the six episodes that were recorded with her last year will be broadcast on CBBC at a date to be confirmed.”

The news follows a false report in The Sun newspaper today, claiming that scripts for Series 5 were to be rewritten. The show’s lead writer Phil Ford responded to The Sun‘s article on Twitter, saying: “Dear Editor of The Sun, I think you will find there’s plenty of news out there today without making stuff the fuck up!”
