5.0 out of 5 stars STILL GOING STRONG, 3 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sarah Jane Adventures - The Complete Series 3 Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
Sarah Jane Smith continues to save the planet whenever The Doctor is otherwise engaged - invaluable help provided by adopted genius son Luke, young neighbours streetwise Clyde and would-be reporter Rani, that awesome computer and the welcome return of K9. Six more two part adventures are guaranteed to give much enjoyment.

The first one perhaps rather less so - seemingly a trifle under-rehearsed and, to be honest, a bit silly. Rapidly though the season is back on form with exciting events in a derelict fairground, a haunted house (Donald Sumpter splendidly sinister) and an art gallery. Not least is that little matter of rapidly multiplying plants threatening to exterminate all human life....

Many highlights include a glimpse of 2059, a desperately lonely aged Rani forever regretting the great mistake she once made. Best moment of all? For many this may well occur at the end of episode five. Sarah Jane is about to marry. Suddenly - a dramatic intervention designed to make viewers sit up and give a great cheer.

No bonuses to speak of, but much to please - including Sam Watts' music which ideally complements. Sadly there are still those pre-credit spoilers that so irritate. Why not let us reflect on what we have seen, try to anticipate how things will work out? Such trailers do not whet the appetite but spoil the meal.

For three seasons this Doctor Who spin-off has delighted - Elisabeth Sladen ensuring it all works a treat. Mums and dads, perhaps even grandparents, enjoyed her Sarah Jane exploits over thirty years ago. Now she has a new generation of fans.

Great fun. Warmly recommended.
