So What Are The Cast Up To?

The Sarah Jane Adventures ran from 2007-2011. The Spin Off show of Doctor Who has 5 Series in total and is written by Russell T Davies. Series 5 of the show was incomplete due to the sudden death of Elisabeth Sladen. Due to the passing away of Elisabeth Sladen in 2011, the show had to come to an end as the main character had passed away in reality. Lets have a look. (This excludes Elisabeth Sladen)

Tommy Knight - Luke Smith

Tommy Knight is responsible for playing Sarah Jan'es adopted son Luke Smith. Luke was not born like us, he was created by the Bane and has the brains of 10,000 humans making him smarter than ever. Luke Smith appeared in Series 1-3 of the show. In Series 4, Luke departed from the show to go to Oxford University. Luke had been in some episodes of Series 4 and 5 but this was via webcam from University. His last Episode was "The Man Who Never Was".
