David Tennant in screening... Tickets for BBC preview of Sarah Jane special going

There won't be many more opportunities to see David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor, but the Timelord is travelling to Liverpool – at least on the screen.
Before he gives the keys to the TARDIS back, Tennant turns up in a special episode of the successful Dr Who spin-off, the Sarah Jane Adventures and Liverpool people get to see it first in an exclusive, free sneak screening by the BBC later this month, at the Odeon in Liverpool One.
It's aimed at kids, but Confidential knows several grown men who tune into children's channel CBBC to see mumsy Elisabeth Sladen take on the teatime aliens.

Not only will they and junior geeks-in-waiting be able to see the much-anticipated episode before anybody else in the country, they will see footage of the making of the series and take part in a question and answer session with stars Tommy Knight who plays Luke Smith and Daniel Anthony who plays Clyde Langer. But sadly not Ms Sladen, who once hot-footed it atound the galaxies tanlged up in Tom Baker's scarf.

Alternatively children can drop into Liverpool ONE to take part in a range of free activities. Sarah Jane’s companions, including a replica of the Xylok supercomputer Mr Smith, robot dog K-9 plus some of the monsters from the series will be making their debut in Liverpool, which should please Dr Who anoraks of any age.
A special green screen experience will allow children to bust monster moves in front of a Sarah Jane virtual screen and/or be transformed into monsters in the alien face painting zone. There will be free giveaways for children taking part in the activities.
Tickets for the screenings are being released this Wednesday (Oct 14) and need to be reserved in advance. Visit or drop intothe Odeon Liverpool ONE, 14 Paradise Street, Liverpool, L1 8JF to reserve your seat.
