The Sarah Jane Adventures – Prisoner Of The Judoon:
Part One Ep 1/12

New series
Thursday 15 October
4.35-5.00pm BBC ONE
(L-R) Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah, Anjli Mohindra as Rani, Daniel Anthony as Clyde and Tommy Knight as Luke
Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen) and the gang come face to face with the rhino-like Judoon

Investigative journalist Sarah Jane Smith, one-time companion to The Doctor, is back for a third series of alien-busting adventures, from creator Russell T Davies, which also features a special appearance from The Doctor himself, David Tennant, who stars in two episodes.

Sarah Jane is accompanied by her adopted son, Luke, his streetwise pal, Clyde Langer, their schoolmate, Rani, who lives opposite and has aspirations to become a journalist like Sarah Jane, and their Xylok super computer in the attic, Mr Smith. Sarah Jane's robot dog, K-9, also joins the gang on their adventures.

In the first of this two-part adventure, Sarah Jane and the gang face the most dangerous day of their lives, as the rhino-like Judoon return. When prisoner Androvax the Destroyer crash-lands on Earth, a Veil is set free and starts to turn Earth's technology against itself. And his next intended victim is Sarah Jane.

The series also features an extraterrestrial girl who can make people play games against their will; a living painting; the inhabitants of a supposedly haunted house; and monsters who want to infect Earth with a strangely aggressive weed. Finally, there is a chance for Sarah Jane to find personal happiness with someone who could be the perfect person to complete her family.

A brand-new website accompanies the third series, complete with a trailer maker, monster hunt, video diaries from the cast, web games and exclusive behind-the-scenes videos.

The concluding episode of this two-part adventure can be seen tomorrow.

Gaynor summons up the courage to run off again, in this week's penultimate episode of the comedy-drama starring Emma Fryer.

Kelly, however, is the first of the girls to turn 30 and, rather than leave her pal in her time of need, Gaynor mucks in with an impromptu budget luxury spa day and a night on the town. But, as the girls begin to hit the milestone, how will they react when confronted with the new, younger face of Coventry?

Gaynor is played by Emma Fryer and Kelly by Rebekah Staton.

High Definition programme
Thursday 15 October
10.30-11.00pm BBC THREE
Tania (Jessica Hall) supervises the office move
Tania (Jessica Hall) supervises the office move

The admin team are working late and Tania is in charge, in the concluding episode of the comedy series about the slackers in personal injury firm Fox Cranford. She has been asked to supervise the office move while the place is being refurbished, and Mike has promised her a promotion if it all goes to plan this evening. However, things begin to look shaky when the lights start to flicker and there seems to be a problem with the electrics.

Kenny convinces Asif that the building is haunted and this freaks him out for the whole night. He's scared to go down to the basement alone in case he confronts the ghost of the serial-killer caretaker. But is there really a ghost and can Asif control his bladder in the face of such fear?

Meanwhile, Tania is getting stressed – not only has Charlie gone to a work event with Lee Ann but the team keep messing around and no-one's following the itinerary. Shelley's going through relationship troubles of her own with on-off boyfriend Swanny and fending off Darrel's advances yet again. Believing that Tania is worse than Gloria, Shelley convinces Darrel and Asif to go on strike. It's going to take something special, like pizzas and chicken wings, to save the day.

Tania is played by Jessica Hall, Mike by Nigel Havers, Kenny by Christian Foster, Asif by Abdullah Afzal, Charlie by Steve John Shepherd, Shelley by Rachel Rae, Darrel by Chris Hannon and Gloria by Sian Reeves.

Lunch Monkeys is simulcast on the BBC HD channel – the BBC's High Definition channel, available through Freesat, Sky and Virgin Media.
