"Clyde sat glumly with his head in his hands"

This the first of two new audio stories to be released without the authoritative yet comforting cosseting tones of Elisabeth Sladen, and, to be honest, I was expecting an inferior, less heart-warming product from AUDIOGO (the new home of BBC AUDIO). However, THE SARAH JANE ADVENTURES - CHILDREN OF STEEL regales in the heritage that Sladen lovingly nurtured and endorsed, and continues without compromise that fans of the television drama series will please to know.

The decision to continue with Sarah Jane Smith's tales of alien incursion adventures is most welcome and, personally, I hope that AUDIOGO pursue further titles in the coming years.

Martin Day's Earth-bound adventure is confidently presented by one of the series' "stars", the underrated, Daniel Anthony (playing Clyde Langer - a character who would transfer to the main DOCTOR WHO series, as a member of the TARDIS crew, with such ease). Bar an annoying `squeaky chair' (a aspect of the recording that could have been resolved with a quick application of WD40), he effortlessly performs with a deft reverence to the story's characters; everything from the K9-like and all knowing (albeit slightly annoying), Sky to `landed gentry' to steam pumped-driven Victorian mechanical man known as a `Difference Golem' to a tempered Sarah Jane Smith. In fact, he's a revelation.

Refreshingly, the script, for a children's story, is diligently littered with mature phrases ("...a patina of dust...") and context (19th. Century social unrest) that will force younger listeners to question, query and ask adults, whether parents or teachers, for explanation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kids love it 19 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As a family we all listened to this on a long car journey. The children enjoyed it more than us adults, but then it is a children's story. My daughter said she would listen to it again.

2.0 out of 5 stars T.S.J.A. "Children of Steel." 20 Mar 2013
By James
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A fairly good story but did not particularly like the reading by Daniel Anthony. I first became acquainted with the Sarah Jane Adventures after hearing "The Thirteenth Stone" and "The Glittering Storm" broadcast on BBC Radio 4 Extra. Liked them both and was delighted to find more of them at Amazon.
