From Amazon.co.uk

A series tragically cut short, the final run of The Sarah Jane Adventures is inevitably tinged with a sense of sadness. But it’s also a fitting testament to the late, great Elisabeth Sladen. Only six episodes of series five of the show had been made by the time Sladen passed away, and inevitably, that leaves work unfinished here. But the trio of two-episode stories are in keeping with the strength of the show from its four series beforehand. In fact, in the case of The Curse Of Clyde Langer, it features one of the very best The Sarah Jane Adventures stories full stop.

It’s not a perfect final series, with the not-entirely-popular inclusion of the character of Sky being a problem. But even in its weakest moments, there’s plenty to keep you interested, not least watching the superb Sladen at work.

The Blu-ray set is a lovely tribute to her and the show, too. The sharp presentation of the episodes is perhaps a given, but the highlight of the extras package is Goodbye Bannerman Road – Remembering Elisabeth Sladen. This is a lovely, fitting tribute to Sladen, with the added weight of contributions from the many people who worked with her, Matt Smith included.

There’ll always be a sense of unfinished business to The Sarah Jane Adventures, by the very nature of the sad way that it all came to an end. But it’ll always remain a smart, confident and terrific show, and this final series is a fitting showcase of why. Goodbye, Sarah Jane Smith. You’re very much missed. --Jon Foster

Enjoyable final series of SJA. Sadly only 3 episodes long :(. Would have been nice to have a few more extras like the series 4 blu ray or even could have included K9 and company as a final tribute to Lis.

4.0 out of 5 stars Truncated, but great 18 April 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Sadly cut short by the death of star Elisabeth Sladen this last series of THE SARAH JANE ADVENTURES is a mixed bag to be sure, but at its best is up there at the height of the show. The story about Clyde becoming a pariah and street kids going missing is the show at its very best, tackling kids' fears through science fiction. It's scary for kids and thought-provoking for adults.

If you buy this for no other reason then the farewell tribute to the lovely Lis Sladen is worth the price alone. Anyone who grew up with her, either on DOCTOR WHO or THE SARAH JANE ADVENTURES, prepare to shed tears.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best show ever,why did it end. 2 April 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I cried when i heard she died,ibe never cried at the news any of my family have died but this touched a huge nerve.having met 7 different people who have played doctor who i was gutted to think id never meet liz and just as gutted the show would never be the same again.never for a second did i think. It would end just as they ruined then ended torchwood.a kids,family and adult show all crossing over in one universe for a couple of years was the most exciting thing on tv.and sarah jane was the best of them all.she is the best companion ever and would have stayed until she died however long she lived.the fact they ended the whole thing probably made her turn in her grave,from magazines,interviews,live talks etc of other dr who universe staff actors etc ,she was the nicest most genuine person to ever work in tv or even to be on this earth.to think all those staff and especially the kids as main characters all losing their jobs probably upset her more than knowing she was dying.she would have wanted the show to continue just like the girl to the left of her on the photo (who btw has the most amazing hugs ever) said she would have loved if the kids took oer and wrote sarahs death into the actual story.apparently the writers thought it was disrespectful but anyone with common sense tells you liz was filming just days before she died ,knowing she was dying,she wanted as many episodes made as possible.if they carried on without her it would have been an honour in her memory.many writers,producers and actors made the show but it was liz's show,no other companion could have set up such a unique yet similar world as the sarah jane universe,for it to continue would have meant so much to her and to fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic series 8 April 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Never let it be said that when Doctor Who returned in 2005 that it couldn't be the first time that a spin-off would be made and be so popular.

Elisabeth Sladen loved the role of Sarah Jane Smith and watching this now will make you love her as though she hadn't already left us.

I am proud to own this and will never forget Liz. She will never be missed to me.

Long live Elisabeth Sladen.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fond Farewell to Sarah Jane Adventures 2 Mar 2012
By Lorin Chisholm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is the last filmed series of episodes of 'The Sarah Jane Adventures' before Elisabeth Sladen's unexpected death in April 2011. I'm glad to see that not only did BBC broadcast this final group of episodes, but has made them available around the world on DVD to fans of Miss Sladen and the show.

In this release we will get 16:9 (1.78:1), Dolby Digital 2.0 stereo sound and English subtitles. The lone extra is "Goodbye Bannerman Road - Remembering Elisabeth Sladen" which is a twenty-minute tribute to Miss Sladen by those that worked with her on the series, including current 'Doctor Who' star Matt Smith. Sadly, the "My Sarah Jane" special that aired on CBBC shortly after Miss Sladen's death is not included.

Series 5 consists of six episodes (out of the originally planned twelve), which make up three stories: "Sky," "The Curse of Clyde Langer," and "The Man Who Never Was." New character Sky didn't have much time to develop due to the shortened amount of episodes filmed, so there is a weakness of her presence most of the time. Of these three stories, I think "The Curse of Clyde Langer" is possibly one of the best of the entire run of the series. It is certainly powerful acting from Daniel Anthony. Those fearing that we are left with major dangling plots can rest assured that we do get a heartfelt tag at the end that appropriately wraps-up 'The Sarah Jane Adventures' and Elisabeth Sladen's loving devotion playing Sarah Jane Smith.

Although primarily aimed at children, this is a delightful and thoughtful program that appeals to all age groups. It is well-written with emphasis on characters, but also with plenty of action, humor and engaging plotlines. This is mainly due to showrunner Russell T. Davis (Exec. Producer & head writer for 'Doctor Who' 2005 - 2010) and his team who does not dumb down any of their writing or subject matter the way many children's and adult programs woefully do today.

The main attraction goes to star Elisabeth Sladen who always holds together the integrity of keeping the relationships as human and real as possible while surrounded with fantastical situations. The focus of the series is always on the building and maintaining of family, the respect between Sarah Jane and her younger friends, and always trying to do what is right even when it is difficult. These ethics come across loud and clear from Elisabeth Sladen's performance, which in turn inspired everyone who worked on the show to do the same.

Series 5 is a fitting showcase and finale for a terrific program.

5.0 out of 5 stars We will miss you Miss Sarah Jane Smith 1 July 2012
By Kacie Llyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I still get tears in my eyes over the loss of Elisabeth Sladen. As a long time fan of the original Doctor Who (I started with Tom Baker's Fourth Doctor and his best-loved companion, fiesty reporter Sarah Jane Smith.) The Sarah Jane Smith Adventures was one of the better spin-offs I've seen (how could it be less? It was Doctor Who and Sarah Jane Smith), more child-friendly but often just as exciting as the also-wonderful Torchwood. Even though it was meant for a far younger audience than I, I found it a hugely entertaining series and looked forward to each release on DVD (unfortunately after the first season, none of my television channels carried it so I was forced to wait). Losing Ms. Sladen felt almost like losing a childhood friend, and I was so glad they released the last episodes. She was always Sarah Jane, always fiesty, always couragous, and always a lady.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goodbye Sweet Sarah Jane....Season 5 27 Jun 2012
By Bruce Joyner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Elisabeth Sladen was a lovely person and an actor that i always looked forward to seeing on her show "The Sarah Jane Adventures".. To me she felt more like part of my family.
She seemed more like a mom (a very cool mom)that i could watch from episode to episode knowing she and her kids would save the day or the world in many cases..I knew that would happen and that made me feel good inside...I cried when i heard she had died..as i believe many others cried, too. This last bit of (Sarah Jane)...Elisabeth Sladen is all we will ever get...it is excellent..as i expected it to be...Sarah Jane Season 5...is goodbye....and i am glad i have it...given to me by a friend..I'll buy another on Amazon.com....and i am sad the adventures are over...Goodbye Elisabeth....Goodbye Sarah...

It is a really excellent series! Great for Dr Who lovers and young science fiction buffs, or young at heart. It is sad to see the end of the series and the loss of a super actress.
