1. Prisoner of the Judoon
An escaped alien prisoner, stranded on Earth, needs to use a technology company's nano-forms to escape (and thus wreak havoc, naturally), a company where Rani's mother Gita just happens to be trying to sell floral displays (with her headmaster husband in tow). The prisoner's Judoon guard and Sarah's teenage cohorts are in pursuit of the alien. Sarah Jane herself is otherwise occupied...
A great opener. Though there are more than a few shudders on the way, as the story progresses the emphasis is most definitely on fun. The earth-bound setting allows for far better Judoon-obey-the-law jokes than either its Doctor Who forerunner 'Smith and Jones' or its book form counterpart 'Revenge of the Judoon' (and 'Prisoner of the Judoon' is much more entertaining than either of them. In spite of his authoritarian literalism, or more likely because of it, I ended up feeling rather attached to Judoon Captain Tybo.) Though the story as a whole is an excellent kids story, it's not free of niggles: in the middle of a tale with so many light touches, the abduction of a little girl is extremely dark in contrast to the rest; the part one cliff-hanger (boy genius stating the obvious to super-intelligent computer) is resolved a little too easily; Elisabeth Sladen is well over the top in her altered state. Yet, all-in-all, Prisoner of the Judoon is highly entertaining (the Chandras and Tybo especially so) and a great way start to the series.

As of January 4, 2011, BBC Worldwide Americas have released The Sarah Jane Adventures: The Complete Third Season. These six two-part stories have never been broadcast on North American broadcast networks. Each part is 30 minutes, so the stories are 60 minutes each.

The third story, The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith, is extra notable for guest starring David Tennant as the Doctor, in the last production he recorded as the Doctor (to date).
