Get ready for more danger, mystery and Get ready for more danger, mystery and wonder as incomparable Sarah Jane Smith returns for a second series of the spectacular, thrilling children's drama from the makers of Doctor Who and Torchwood.]]>
The three-disc set has an agreeable amount of extras, though many, like episode synopses for both seasons and character profiles, are text-based and therefore a bit underwhelming. More interesting are interviews with the cast and behind-the-scenes footage, most taken from UK kids' series like Blue Peter. There's also an enjoyable quiz section that yields an amusing comic clip. --Paul Gaita

The Last Sontaran: This is a direct continuation of the 10th Doctor's episodes Poison Sky & Sontaran Stratagem. It's loaded with science fiction movie references (Star Wars, Predator, etc.) and the 1st episode action is pretty good. There are some logical gaps that grate, but it's pretty well done.
The Day of the Clown: Good creepy show introducing some new characters. The Pied Piper features... Some filler, but mostly good.
Secrets of the Stars: Astrology, possession, Ancient Ones, and a Chosen One. But nowhere near as bad as that makes it sound! Still, my least favorite of the season.
The Mark of the Berserker: Sarah Jane doesn't feature prominently in this episode, rather it's like the Dr. Who & Torchwood episodes that focus instead on others having a singular experience with the unknown and alien. Rather well done tale of an alien pendant and family relationships.
The Temptation of Sarah Jane Smith: Time Travel, the Trickster, and a Trap. A well-worn science fiction cliche of changing the past to horrible effect in the present, but nicely executed. More would be telling too much...
Enemy of the Bane: UNIT, the Brigadier, immortal aliens, Mrs. Wormwood ("Luke, I am your mother."), and the Bane attempt to take over the world again. Might be a bit too much packed in here, but, once again, pretty well done.
This isn't the greatest science fiction television of all times, but it's fun, smart, and very human.
The second season of Sarah Jane Adventures had the show really take off with the addition of the pretty Rani Chandra. Her family moved in across the street from where Maria Jackson and her father used to live. The characters continue to develop and we see how they truly care for one another just as they accept the wonderful Rani Chandra into their secret club.
I was astonished at the writing for this series. The Last Sontaran may well have been the best episode of the season followed by Day of the Clown which added to Sarah Jane's backstory as did The Temptation of Sarah Jane Smith. I truly loved this season and it may well have been the best of the Doctor Who spinoffs.
Sarah Jane Smith is the best ever Dr. Who companion and I was saddened to hear of Elisabeth Sladen's passing. She will always be missed but never forgotten. If you like all things Dr. Who I highly recommend this series. Buy it and you won't be disappointed.

The Sarah Jane Adventures is a wonderful addition to the Doctor Who universe. One of the things I love most about it that I miss from Classic Who is the "companion team" idea; not simply the Doctor and his companion, but Sarah Jane and her "family" out solving mysteries and tracking down aliens. Yes, the kids might be younger than the Doctor's companions, but it still doesn't diminish the meaningfulness of their relationships with Sarah Jane or each other. The show is aimed at a younger audience, yet I find that it has about the same levels of action and important, heartfelt messages that Doctor Who has.
Another aspect of this show that really stands out to me is Sarah Jane herself. While I haven't quite reached Sarah Jane's entrance in Classic Who, (I'm getting close!) I still love her character and appreciate her history with the Doctor. In this show, Sarah Jane basically acts as the Doctor, and my goodness does she do an incredible job! In addition to being witty, intelligent, brave, and tech savvy like the Doctor, she also has the heart of a mother. In this way you can see how she plays the part of both the Doctor and the companion at the same time: charging in to save the day and then running to comfort someone in distress. It's a great role, and Elisabeth Sladen just does a phenomenal job.Read more ›
