This Week In Doctor Who Spinoffs
September 26, 2009 - Volume 1, Number 37
The weekly guide to Sarah Jane Adventures and K9 broadcasts, plus any extra
by Benjamin F. Elliott
Sarah Jane's current status:
UK - Sarah Jane Series 3 - Thursdays and Fridays 4:35PM UK Time on BBC One
starting Thursday 15 October.
USA - Since Syfy has not purchased Series 2 or 3 of Sarah Jane, we have no idea
when or if the episodes will reach our TV screens. No network has mentioned that
they are buying the show yet. Yes, BBC America has been sent e-mails and
twitters asking if they'll step forward.
CANADA - BBC Kids has not mentioned any plans to pick up Sarah Jane Series 2.
Instead they've been getting themselves dropped from some cable systems. No
other network has mentioned if they want Sarah Jane in Canada.
USA and CANADA - Sarah Jane Series 2 will actually premiere in these two
countries on DVD, barring last minute surprises. The DVD release is Tuesday
November 10th.
