Sarah Jane renewed for third season

The Sarah Jane AdventuresAmong other announcements, the BBC press office have announced that the Doctor Who spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures has been renewed for a third series ("series" is the British word for "season"). It is scheduled to return in Autumn 2009.

The Sarah Jane Adventures is more geared for younger children than its originator, but some of the episodes are pretty cute. I haven't been able to catch season two yet (I've watched season one). It's more a case of not having the time to catch them rather than a lack of interest (although admittedly I find Doctor Who itself more exciting than its spin-off, but I'm not the target audience. I think). I do want to see the episode in which Nicholas Courtney once again plays his Doctor Who character Brigadier Alastair Lethbridge-Stewart.

I just realized via the press release that one of Sarah Jane's child companions is called "Rani". One of the Doctor's nemeses was a Time Lady named the Rani. Is that a reference back to the original series?
