The BBC had originally approached Russell T. Davies and asked him to make a character gay in the show. Davies planned for this character to be Luke, and intended to begin foreshadowing it from The Nightmare Man. However, Davies chose to cut one line which hinted more explicitly at this more development. The line which is cut is from the scene in which Luke saying goodbye to Sarah Jane as he departs for university.

Luke Smith is a fictional regular character played by Tommy Knight in the British children's science fiction television series The Sarah Jane Adventures, a spin-off of the long-running series Doctor Who. Luke is a regular character in The Sarah Jane Adventures both in television and audio adventures. He has also appeared in three episodes of Doctor Who: the two-parter "The Stolen Earth"/"Journey's End", and the Tenth Doctor's finale episode "The End of Time, Part Two". Within the narrative of th
Luke Smith is introduced as "the Archetype" in the first episode of The Sarah Jane Adventures, the New Year's Day special "Invasion of the Bane". The Bane known as Mrs Wormwood creates the Archetype from thousands of samples of DNA taken from visitors touring their Bubble Shock!

Had the series not been ended by Sladen's death, Davies had intended for Luke to be gay. References had been made to Luke's friend Sanjay, whom Davies intended would be introduced properly as Luke's boyfriend. Although this was a development suggested by the network, Davies still ultimately chose to cut a line which hinted at this development in the Luke-centric two-parter The Nightmare Man.

The show followed Sarah Jane Smith sometime after she met the Tenth Doctor in School Reunion. Like UNIT and Torchwood, Sarah had decided to deal with aliens in her own way. She was assisted by teenagers from her neighbourhood who unknowingly involve themselves in her life, such as Maria Jackson, Clyde Langer, and Rani Chandra. Also, through her adventures, Sarah entered motherhood by adopting former alien-created tools, such as her son Luke Smith and daughter Sky Smith. She was assisted in knowledge of alien life and technology by her super-computer, Mr Smith and robot dog K9 Mark IV.
The development of SJA never attracted the same level of minute coverage of its parent programme. Whereas the production of individual Doctor Who stories was often known in great detail, behind-the-scenes information about SJAwas considerably harder to come by. The project appeared to have started in 2006, slightly prior to the broadcast of School Reunion. At that time, the CBBC expressed an interest in producing a Doctor Who spin-off. Their initial idea was "a drama based on the idea of a young Doctor Who", but Russell T. Davies vetoed this. "Somehow, the idea of a fourteen-year-old Doctor, on Gallifrey inventing sonic screwdrivers, takes away from the mystery and intrigue of who he is and where he came from," said Davies. He suggested instead a series based on the Doctor's former companion Sarah Jane Smith. Reports of a spin-off series first emerged around the time of School Reunion original airing, with the series having the working title of Sarah Jane Investigates. Indeed, Slade...
The original executive producers for The Sarah Jane Adventures were Russell T Davies and Julie Gardner. Susie Liggat produced Invasion of the Bane, but Matthew Bouch took over for Liggat for series 1 "proper". Phil Collinson held the title of "Series Producer" during the first year. Gareth Roberts— a sort of "uncredited producer" — said of the initial series, Bouch remained in the producer's chair through series 2. For the following year, Nikki Wilson replaced him, and Piers Wenger, Julie Gar...
The writing staff was fairly stable throughout the programme's run. The job of the head writer was effectively shared between Phil Ford, Gareth Roberts and Russel T Davies for most of the five years — though none of these men actually got a credit as "head writer". Davies did intend to write more stories for the show but on different occasions was forced to pull out being busy with writing Torchwood and Doctor Who, this meant he only ever was credited for writing two stories. Joseph Lidster,...

Casting decisions were not routinely discussed in the press with anything like the ferocity that Doctor Whocasting announcements were. As a result, many cast changes were often the subject of fan speculation more than fact.
SJA debuted on BBC One with a 60-minute special on 1 January 2007. A full series of ten 30-minute episodes followed later in the year. The second series had twelve 30-minute episodes and aired in the autumn of 2008, followed by a third in late 2009. A mini-episode for charity also aired in early 2009. Meanwhile, series four went into production in March 2010. At the same time, what was expected to be the first half of the fifth serieswas produced as part of the Series 4 recording block, with the second half of the series initially planned for production in early 2011. However, because Elisabeth Sladen died on 19 April 2011, series 5 was truncated to just those three serials that had been completed in 2010.The series, therefore, ended because Sladen died, and no parties to the production of the series wished to continue without her.
Series 1 aired on the Sci-Fi Channel in the US and BBC Kids in Canada in 2007. In January 2010, Series 2 began airing on BBC Kids. No US broadcast of anything past series 1 ever occurred, and Canada never saw any episode past the second series. Invasion of the Bane was broadcast in Australia on ABC1. Nevertheless, in both Australia and New Zealand, the show started airing in January 2010 on Nickelodeon, though only Series 1-4 were broadcast. It was also aired in Brazil on TV Cultura in 2012.
