Product Description

Investigative journalist Sarah Jane Smith and her young sidekicks are back in the final ever episodes of The Sarah Jane Adventures.

The gang soon find themselves up to their necks in alien trouble: discovering an explosive foundling baby; getting drawn into the middle of a war between Fleshkind and Metalkind; being divided by a curse delivered through an ancient totem-pole; coming face-to-face with alien light sculptors, the one-eyed Scullion – and Rani and Clyde getting married – just to save the world…

This DVD features the following two-part stories:

Sky

The Curse of Clyde Langer

The Man Who Never Was

Special Features:

Goodbye Bannerman Road – Remembering Elisabeth Sladen

A tribute to Elisabeth Sladen with contributions from those who worked closely with her, including the Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith.

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

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.

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.

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.
