Series creator Russell T. Davies has stated that one of the story lines he would have incorporated into the show had it continued would have been the revelation that Luke Smith was gay.
Whilst the majority of characters in this series call the journalist by her full name of Sarah Jane, in the original series it was more common for her to be addressed as just Sarah. This has been commented on in the series, where the Doctor notes she allows very few close friends (such as him) to use the diminutive.

CBBC originally approached Russell T Davies asking for a Doctor Who spinoff involving a young Doctor on Gallifrey. Davies rejected the idea, feeling it would take away from the "mystery" of the Doctor, and proposed this series after a positive experience working with Elisabeth Sladen in "School Reunion".
