The BBC's official SJA website posted the new cinema trailer for Series 2 a few days ago. It'll be seen in cinemas from this week onwards I believe and gives us a glimpse of Sontarans and shape changing clowns. Plus it highlights the gorgeous Daniel Anthony who plays Clyde Langer in the series.....
Screencaps courtesy of Adventures Through Time And Space:
BBCi ran a behind the scenes feature on The Sarah Jane Adventures recently which featured an interview with Tommy Knight who plays Sarah's 'son' Luke as well as some location footage for the new series.
Thanks to jontycomp and the Tube Of You.
jules nr 1940 London on the Doctor Who Forum also provided these location photos from the fifth story of the new series in which apparently Sarah Jane and Luke time travel back to 1951.
The second series begins on 29th September and there are six two-part stories this year. The first series is currently being re-shown on Sunday afternoons on BBC1
1: The Last Sontaran - by Phil Ford.
2: Day of the Clown - by Phil Ford.
3: Secrets of the Stars - Gareth Roberts
4: The Mark of the Berserker - Joseph Lidster
5: The Temptation of Sarah Jane Smith - by Gareth Roberts
6: Enemy of the Bane - Phil Ford.
The second series will guest star Bradley Walsh in two episodes which are to be written by Phil Ford, and Russ Abbot in a pair of episodes written by Gareth Roberts.
Also confirmed for the second series are Gary Beadle and Jocelyn Jee Esien, who will be introduced as Clyde's parents Paul and Carla. In the opening episodes, the Sontarans will make a re-appearance along with classic series favourite Sir Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart, played by Nicholas Courtney. A new member of Sarah's 'gang', Rani Chandra played by Anjli Mohindra, will make her debut in the second story after Yasmin Paige bows out as Maria after the first two episodes. She'll be introduced with her parents, Haresh, and Gita to be played by Ace Bhatti and Mina Anwar.
