Sam, everyone's favourite hero next door, is determined to get to the bottom of the mysterious events. David Tennant joins regular cast members Steve Kynman and Tegwen Tucker, voicing the villainous Buck Douglas, a TV celebrity whose arrival in town stirs up excitement as residents anticipate featuring on his 'Alien Quest' show.

Producing Alien Alert has been an incredible joy and we're confident that our young audience will be captivated by our most dramatic Fireman Sam story yet.” The special is produced by HIT Entertainment and distributed worldwide by DHX Media.
