Here’s a roundup of the sci-fi offerings on TV Friday (5/9):

Doctor Who
The Doctor (David Tennant) takes Donna (comedian Catherine Tate) on her first excursion to the future and runs into some old acquaintances: the tentacle-faced Ood, who are still willing slaves to humanity. But for how long? The episode “Planet of the Ood” airs 9 p.m. on Sci Fi. It’s a sequel to Series Two’s two-parter “The Impossible Planet-The Satan Pit.”

The Sarah Jane Adventures
Two half hour episodes: Sarah Jane Smith (Elizabeth Sladen) must save her son from insectile aliens who recruit laser-tag champions to fight their wars for them; Sarah Jane is erased from history and only her neighbor Maria (Yasmin Paige) remembers her. The episode “Warriors of Kudlak” airs at 8 p.m. and the episode “Whatever Happened to Sarah Jane?” airs at 8:30 p.m. on Sci Fi.
