Spooky Sarah Jane Preview

How do you follow up the amazing "The Wedding Of Sarah Jane Smith"? With a Halloween-flavoured haunted house story, that's how. Nest week’s Sarah Jane Adventure is "The Eternity Trap" written by Phil Ford. He's also co-written The Waters Of Mars which is already being called one of the scariest Doctor Who stories ever, so it'll be interesting to tune into "The Eternity Trap" as a taster of Ford's scare tactics.

“It’s the scary ones that I enjoy the most,” Ford told SFX. “‘The Eternity Trap’ is one of those stories which was born out of necessity... we didn't have the budget that we had before, so I stupidly aid, 'Okay, I'll do an episode that doesn't have any FX in it at all.' And I'd wanted to do a haunted house episode for a while. I wanted to do a haunted house story whether it was in Sarah Jane or not. And out of necessity, I think, we've created a really fabulous episode.” Well, if "Midnight" is anything to go by, there's nothing wrong with cheap episodes!
