Six more two part adventures. Despite fearsome aliens, many viewers may find the clowns most alarming. (Bradley Walsh impresses in a new slant on the Pied Piper story.) As before, Sarah Jane's sonic lipstick (a gift from The Doctor) proves a boon. Foolishly she still leaves a spare key under the flowerpot. (No prizes for guessing what happens.)
Elisabeth Sladen delights as Sarah Jane (especially for those with memories of her escapades about thirty years ago). There is a flashback glimpse of The Doctor (in David Tennant mode), not to mention the reappearance of The Unit's Brigadier, he now with a walking stick.
Often in television series nowadays music is intrusive, an irritant. Here, though, Sam Watts' score ideally complements. Less acceptable are the trailers before closing credits. They spoil. Bonuses include a very funny Comic Relief sketch, but it can only be seen after correct answers to a quiz.
In short, there is much to please fans young and old. Great.
Does it pull it off? Almost.
THE LAST SONTARAN sees the return of Sarah Jane (Elisabeth Sladen), Luke (Thomas Knight), Clyde (Daniel Anthony) and Maria (Yasmin Paige). Also, the Sontarans make a well-deserved comeback with Anthony O'Donnell delivering his Kaagh lines very well indeed. This story has a lot of tension in it, which is helped by really good music. However, Maria leaves at the end...
Rani (Anjli Mohindra) makes a cofident, if slightly flawed debut in THE DAY OF THE CLOWN, a truly chilling tale of clowns. Bradley Walsh does a brilliant job playing three different characters, plus we also get more brilliant scenes between Tom and Lis.
SECRETS OF THE STARS follows, as the Ancient Lights prepare to take over the starsigns. It's an intriguing premise, with a brilliant cliffhanger, and a powerful, and slightly mad performance from Russ Abbot as Mr Trueman.
Clyde finally takes centre stage, in THE MARK OF THE BERSERKER, as his Dad (Gary Beadle) turns up again. What follows is a magnificent story in which an alien pendant that makes people do whatever you want them to finds its way around Paul Langer's neck, with disastrous consequences. Incredible acting all round, with Anjli's acting improving.
THE TEMPTATION OF SARAH JANE SMITH, possibly the best story, features the return of the Trickster, as he lures Sarah Jane back to 1951, on the day that her parents die. However, don't go dismissing is as another Father's Day, as this delivers big time. Except maybe the kid playing Oscar, who I couldn't stop laughing at.Read more ›
The Last Sontaran - A cracking opener including the doctor's old enemies as well as a fiendish plot. Kaagh is a great enemy and this is a great story
Day Of The Clown - Scary stuff in a lot of ways and quite a strange plot but introduces Rani well, and Bradley Walsh plays a great clown
Secrets Of The Stars - The weakest story of the series but still great with an original plot however it lacks real alien enemies but Russ Abbot is still great
The Mark Of The Berserker - emotional stuff, without Sarah mostly however the story is simple but effective. Clyde is fantastic in this story and is also good for bringing back a familiar face - a classic
The Temptation Of Sarah Jane Smith - the almost inevitable 'what if' episode. Sarah has to fight her own temptation to stop her parents being killed and also the trickster. Again emotional and powerful
Enemy Of The Bane - A great finally, bringing back 2 great enemies and the Brigadier. The Bane are a great alien race and helps bring this series to a brilliant close
Overall a brilliant series and i personally can't wait til series 3 with the return of K9 and an episode with the doctor, the Judoon and the blathereen (friends/enemies of the slitheen?)
