5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 29 Oct 2011
By PWB
Format:DVD
The great work done by Russell T Davies and the crew down at BBC Wales, has allowed this CBBC PRODUCTION, to be a success. The DVD is a great way of allowing us to watch our favourite episodes again, mine being the Death of the Doctor. It is fantastic that they managed to get Matt Smith in before Liz passed on and their on screen chemistry is superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Season Yet 19 Oct 2011
By Riffan
Format:DVD
The Sarah Jane Adventures has been one of the finest series on CBBC ever and gave both Elizabeth Sladen and Sarah Jane Smith to continue their time in the Doctor Who world of aliens and enemies, monsters and villains, the wonders of the universe and protecting the Earth. The fourth series massively improves on the third with strong stories and more realistic enemies and stories. It's the strongest one yet with better CGI, more developement in the overall story of Sarah Jane's World, and monsters more terrifying and sinister than ever before.

The Nightmare Man 9/10 - the darkest episode of the series so far, which looks at the innermost fears of Luke, Clyde and Rani as they battle probably their most sinister foe who preys on their nightmares and fears. Well rounded, very atmospheric episode and midway turns into a full pshychological thriller, this story sees the goodbye of Luke as a regular defender of the Earth as he goes off to University, waving a fond and quite sad farewell. This is probably also one of the most human stories of the series as it sees Sarah Jane adjust to letting him go into the world on his own.

Vault of Secrets 7/10 - sees the return of Androvax, the alien able to hide in other's bodies from Series 3. The episode also sees a returning enemy from Doctor Who: Dreamland, in the form of Mr Dread, who brings a kind of Matrix kind of feel to the episode. The story follows the trio helping Androvax to open a mysterious vault. The episode is probably the lightest and features Gita meeting with a UFO spotting group, who's name has the abbreivation of BURPS.

Death of the Doctor 9/10 - The Doctor is back again alongside Sarah Jane Smith and Jo Grant, the Doctor's companion prior to her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sarah Jane's Best Series 4 Jan 2012
Format:DVD
Series four of the massively popular Doctor Who spin-off is the best of the bunch. This time the series is slightly more grown-up and the stories become a little more ambitious and best of all there's not a huge reliance on returning monsters which has often been the case in previous series (presumably due to budget issues).

The two disc set includes the following two-part stories:

The Nightmare Man - This story sees Luke moving away from Bannerman Road however his encounter with The Nightmare Man may well mean the end of the world. This is a strong opener and probably one of the darkest Sarah Jane stories of the entire series.

The Vault of Secrets - Sarah Jane and the gang find themselves crossing paths once again with Androvax, the Veil from last series' opening story. This time Rani's mother Gita finds herself in on the action and there's an appearance from the Men in Black from Doctor Who - Dreamland [DVD]. A good story with some great special effects in part two.

The Death of the Doctor - This is a brilliant Doctor Who cross-over episode which sees the return of classic companion Jo Grant (now Jo Jones) as well as the Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith) who finds himself in on the action when a race of vulture like aliens known as the Shansheeth fake his death. This story is a lot of fun and it's great seeing Matt and Elisabeth interacting on screen for what was sadly the only time.

The Empty Planet - This story sees Rani and Clyde finding that they are the only remaining members of the human race left on earth.

5.0 out of 5 stars HOW PROUD THE DOCTOR MUST BE! 17 April 2012
By Mr. D. L. Rees TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
The last full season before the news that so shocked and saddened. Six two-part stories, Luke less involved this time (he no doubt dazzling all at Oxford), Sarah Jane as usual well served by young Rani and Clyde.

Easily the scariest adventure is the first, The Nightmare Man creating disturbing dreams to secure permanent entry into our world. The most poignant, in view of what we now know, is the last where Sarah Jane worries about her health and decides to let someone else take over. Treats in between include not only current Doctor Matt Smith and glimpses of four predecessors, but the return of another former companion - Jo Grant. Viewers will have their favourite episodes. Mine? "Lost in Time" - three stories cleverly interwoven - no mean feat considering they feature Lady Jane Grey, invading Nazis and a house being haunted in 1889.

Not everything works, but overall the season is great fun. Sarah Jane herself delights (she, in her sixties, saving the world more often than we mow the lawn) - her young companions feisty and likeable.

The bonus is a bonus indeed: in memory of Elisabeth Sladen, the showing of a 1975 four part adventure. A Deity with attitude problems plans to destroy all life in the galaxy. With Sarah Jane in a Victorian gown and The Doctor in Tom Baker mode, he has NO chance. It is interesting to compare the past and the present, the Tardis in those days looking very primitive. Viewers will also be able to decide if episodes need pre-credits spoilers.

Yes, much here to enjoy. Available now is the truncated Season 5 - a moving chance to say goodbye.

It's a shame Elizabeth Sladen won't be around for the 50th anniversary, but we can at least enjoy her with the doctor one last time here in Series 4.
