Editorial Reviews

Created by Doctor Who showrunner, Russell T Davies, Season Five sees the bubbly Sky, the Starchild given to Sarah Jane by the Doctor to look after, settle into Bannerman Road and discover she has telekinetic powers... although she has no idea how to use them! Her loveable enthusiasm and zest for life combined with her natural curiosity give Sarah Jane more than one heart-stopping moment. A fast and funny mix of action, drama and special effects, Sarah Jane's adventures grip young audiences across the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fond Farewell to Sarah Jane Adventures March 2, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is the last filmed series of episodes of 'The Sarah Jane Adventures' before Elisabeth Sladen's unexpected death in April 2011. I'm glad to see that not only did BBC broadcast this final group of episodes, but has made them available around the world on DVD to fans of Miss Sladen and the show.

In this release we will get 16:9 (1.78:1), Dolby Digital 2.0 stereo sound and English subtitles. The lone extra is "Goodbye Bannerman Road - Remembering Elisabeth Sladen" which is a twenty-minute tribute to Miss Sladen by those that worked with her on the series, including current 'Doctor Who' star Matt Smith. Sadly, the "My Sarah Jane" special that aired on CBBC shortly after Miss Sladen's death is not included.

Series 5 consists of six episodes (out of the originally planned twelve), which make up three stories: "Sky," "The Curse of Clyde Langer," and "The Man Who Never Was." New character Sky didn't have much time to develop due to the shortened amount of episodes filmed, so there is a weakness of her presence most of the time. Of these three stories, I think "The Curse of Clyde Langer" is possibly one of the best of the entire run of the series. It is certainly powerful acting from Daniel Anthony. Those fearing that we are left with major dangling plots can rest assured that we do get a heartfelt tag at the end that appropriately wraps-up 'The Sarah Jane Adventures' and Elisabeth Sladen's loving devotion playing Sarah Jane Smith.

Although primarily aimed at children, this is a delightful and thoughtful program that appeals to all age groups. It is well-written with emphasis on characters, but also with plenty of action, humor and engaging plotlines. This is mainly due to showrunner Russell T. Davis (Exec.

5.0 out of 5 stars We will miss you Miss Sarah Jane Smith June 30, 2012
Format:DVD
I still get tears in my eyes over the loss of Elisabeth Sladen. As a long time fan of the original Doctor Who (I started with Tom Baker's Fourth Doctor and his best-loved companion, fiesty reporter Sarah Jane Smith.) The Sarah Jane Smith Adventures was one of the better spin-offs I've seen (how could it be less? It was Doctor Who and Sarah Jane Smith), more child-friendly but often just as exciting as the also-wonderful Torchwood. Even though it was meant for a far younger audience than I, I found it a hugely entertaining series and looked forward to each release on DVD (unfortunately after the first season, none of my television channels carried it so I was forced to wait). Losing Ms. Sladen felt almost like losing a childhood friend, and I was so glad they released the last episodes. She was always Sarah Jane, always fiesty, always couragous, and always a lady.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goodbye Sweet Sarah Jane....Season 5 June 26, 2012
Format:DVD
Elisabeth Sladen was a lovely person and an actor that i always looked forward to seeing on her show "The Sarah Jane Adventures".. To me she felt more like part of my family.
She seemed more like a mom (a very cool mom)that i could watch from episode to episode knowing she and her kids would save the day or the world in many cases..I knew that would happen and that made me feel good inside...I cried when i heard she had died..as i believe many others cried, too. This last bit of (Sarah Jane)...Elisabeth Sladen is all we will ever get...it is excellent..as i expected it to be...Sarah Jane Season 5...is goodbye....and i am glad i have it...given to me by a friend..I'll buy another on Amazon.com....and i am sad the adventures are over...Goodbye Elisabeth....Goodbye Sarah...

5.0 out of 5 stars The End December 28, 2012
By Laurasf
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It is a really excellent series! Great for Dr Who lovers and young science fiction buffs, or young at heart. It is sad to see the end of the series and the loss of a super actress.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goodbye Sarah Jane Smith, and thanks. May 15, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Elisabeth Sladen lost her battle with cancer shortly after the filming of this last series of the show. Our family had been watching her in the role of Sarah Jane Smith since she was a companion to Dr. Who, and we feel like we've lost an old friend. The storylines are geared towards younger viewers, but scifi fans will also enjoy the various creatures involved.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine ending. . . May 7, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I think this is a wonderful series for children from 9 to 92. The unexpected and unfortunate end of this show as it prepared to reinvigorate itself by introducing a new character and move forward is at once exciting, fun and deeply saddening. Ms. Sladen was every bit the lady and clearly loved by all who worked with her. It is a shame that she was taken so swiftly and it is our loss that she was.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Who adventures for the younger set... April 4, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have all five seasons of this wonderful show. I found it quite by accident at my library. When I put together the pieces of the few newer Dr. Who episodes in which Elisabeth Sladen appeared, I fell completely in love with the series. It was so sad that we lost this wonderful actress too soon to do another five years. The series had enough story lines to go on and on.

You have episodes with Matt Smith as the Doctor and cross over episodes with the Slitheen and other creepy crawlies from the Who series. Earlier series have episodes with earlier Doctors. All are great fun as the youngsters work with Sarah Jane to save the earth.

The story of how she "adopted" her son gave some added depth to the series. All the young actors were excellent and they made a unified troupe who seemed to read each others' minds.

If you're a Who fan and you have kids, or if you're just a kid yourself, you'll find the whole series great for a "Saturday afternoon in the rain with popcorn." Enjoy!
