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.Read more ›
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...
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!

I'm sure it's ok...in the UK. I didn't realize they couldn't play it here in the "States".Published 15 months ago by Melissa Szeliga
This is a spin off show from a Dr. Who character. Dr Who fans will find that the Sarah Jane Adventures is more suited to 10 to 14 year old kids .
It is a good show though.
So sorry to see the series end with the death of Elisabeth Sladen. Truly there is
no way they could have continued with a substitute. She is the one and only. Read more
