Sarah Jane returns

The Doctor’s former companion returns to CBBC on Monday for the next action-packed series of The Sarah Jane Adventures. To celebrate, this week’s Doctor Who Adventures has a sneak preview of the first episode – The Last Sontaran. There’s also a fact file on schoolgirl turned alien investigator Maria Jackson and a Sontaran mask for readers to wear. Sontar-ha!

We also look ahead to Christmas when an old enemy will stomp back on to our screens. What do the Cybermen want this time? And how will the Doctor cope on his own without Donna by his side?

This week’s issue has got two brand-new features. In Blast from the Past we journey back in time to the former Doctors’ adventures. This week it’s City of Death and the moment the Count turns into the yucky Scaroth. Also, Action Replay puts some of the scariest moments from Doctor Who under the microscope.

The issue comes with a free sonic pen and TARDIS sticky notes.
