Second Dr. Who Spin-off

The BBC’s in-house newsletter apparently has revealed that a second spin-off of Doctor Who is being launched. The first, Torchwood, starts this Fall, and is aimed at adults. The new series will be aimed at kids, and is being done by CBBC (the children’s channel):

“CBBC is developing a spin-off series from Doctor Who based on the adventures of investigative journalist Sarah Jane, played by Elizabeth Sladen, and to be written by Russell T Davies.”

Outpost Gallifrey (my source for Doctor Who news — VERY reliable) has heard from a variety of sources that the working title of the show is Sarah Jane Investigates.

    Yeah, I know — that’s actually not going to be a BBC production, though.

    “More on K9 Series
    July 18, 2006
    At an appearance this past weekend, K9 creator Bob Baker revealed that the new planned K9 spinoff series would not be animated, but in fact would feature a blend of live-action and CGI: K9 himself would be a CGI creation, but the show would otherwise be recorded in front of cameras. Baker noted that the idea of the series being animated was merely a press rumor but was never intended. Baker stated that scripts had been written (or were being written) for 26 thirty-minute episodes, and a test reel had been completed with footage specially filmed to show the look of the new series. The series is being planned to air in early 2008 and is an independent production with no further ties to the BBC or the Doctor Who property. “
