Hooray, the marvellous Sarah Jane Smith is back for a Third series of adventures. Rumours and hopes of a Fourth series are in the air at the moment but I am sure there will be due to the announced Fourth Torchwood series.
In this boxset we have Twelve episodes making up Six stories with Doctor Who monsters, the Judoon, Slitheen, and from the New Series Novel "The Monsters Inside", the Blathereen. Returning SJA villian The Trickster also returns along with a host of new aliens and monsters.
The cast returns and it shows that the Three young actors are going strong and know their characters. K-9 also returns which is a very nice treat and gets a good share of the action.
What this series is most notable for however, is the special apperance from departing Tenth Doctor, David Tennant. This is not widely known, but this was his last work as the Doctor and it shows. The final scene (although not the final scene he filmed) is almost directed at the viewer and is reminiscent of "The Hand Of Fear" scene only with the roles reversed. This, "Dreamland" and the Christmas BBC1 idents were dubbed the "Special Projects" in the gap year although an appearance by the Doctor has always been present since the beginning of the series.
I would rate this boxset 10/10. It is by far the best series yet of SJA. I would have preferred the episodes with the Doctor and "Dreamland" released with the specials boxset but never mind. Definitely worth the money.
