I've just received an email off Claire Soper, who went to last weekend's "SF Ball" in Bournemouth city centre. Actress Elisabeth Sladen ('Sarah Jane Smith') was in attendence - and during a question and answer session with the audience, Sladen revealed that production on "The Sarah Jane Adventures" is being delayed... because of Torchwood.
Sladen cites "production problems" on Torchwood's behalf - whatever that means. Her suggestion is something is seriously wrong with Torchwood; meaning most of BBC Wales' attention is focused upon that one show for now. What the inplications are for both "Torchwood" and "The Sarah Jane Adventures" remains to be seen.
This adds to the current rumour that Torchwood won't be returning until 2008 at the earliest. Perhaps there's been some problems now that the series is moving to the far more mainstream BBC Two? Whatever the reason, Torchwood.tv will update when we hear some more.
