Most likely real. "Death of the Doctor" probably features a return from the Trickster (He`s appeared every series, i think)

BlueDalek said...

Of course it's real, it's comfirmed in DWM - I just got it today!

And I think the last one has the Trickster (again) becuase of the Sarah Jane name in the title.

Scorpio said...

BlueDalek: Unfortunately they stopped selling the Doctor Who Adventurers and it wasnt confirmed at that time, i was only believing it was.

BlueDalek said...

No, DWM - Doctor Who Magazine. The 'proper' magazine. Comes out tommorrow, Mac at Planet Gallufrey's obviously got a subscription, like me.

The Bradford Curse aka The Snappy Sneezer said...

Ocean Waters? Can this be related to Amy Pond and River Song?

The Bradford Curse aka The Snappy Sneezer said...

By the by, Katy looks quite fetching there.

Paradox said...

Russell T Davies would write an episode with an over dramatic title.

DAM said...

Please don't let the trickster appear... again. Snore

I'm going to miss Luke. But you could see his leaving the show coming. Last year they kept pushing him to the background or having him stay at home to figure it out.

Scorpio said...

BlueDalek, Sorry, i forgot to clarify, i meant they have stopped selling the magazine near me :(

Any, summary time (My opinions of a likely plot ;)

Episode 1/2
With the title i expect a SJ version of the Dream Lord.
Episode 3/4
Proably a new villain who uses people secrets against them.
Episode 5/6
Trickster or otherwise, Possibly similar to when the tenth doctor met Sarah Jane. This will talk about the doctors regenerations (He`ll mention there is a limit)
Episode 7/8
First episode set partly on another planet (Its been rumored for a while)
Episode 9/10
SJ smith`s companions find themselves lost in time and have to find there way back before the time portal closes.
Episode 11/12
SJ decides to stop fighting aliens. Luke reveals he wants to leave.

Overall, I enjoy SJA for the show that it is, but I've been very disappointed with how the character of Luke has been handled.

He's supposed to be this enormous intellect, a culmination of the minds of everyone who drank the evil Bane orange pop. Over the course of three seasons, however, he very rarely displays this intellect in any sort of productive fashion. In the season two ending, he was little more than a hostage to a lone Sontaran and the Bane woman. He should have been thinking circles around them.

At the very least, it should have occurred to him that once he was inside the protective field his captors needed him to penetrate, they were no longer a threat to him, and as such, he needn't listen to them anymore.

I get that the show's writing is far more simple than Doctor Who, but if kids can watch who and understand it, why dumb down Sarah Jane's show? It could really be something special if they just wrote more complex stories.
