The Sarah Jane Adventures: Season 5: DVD Review


Rating: PG
Released by the BBC and Roadshow Home Entertainment

It's inevitable that this latest The Sarah Jane Adventures: DVD will be tinged with a degree of sadness, releasing as it has after the sad unexpected death of its main actor, Elisabeth Sladen.

Collecting together three two part stories, it's a wonderful tribute to a show and a star which was so loved; in the latest, the gang are involved in alien trouble after finding a foundling baby, divided by a curse and in the case of one of them, being erased from time completely.

It's a half series which was filmed before her death and works so well as children's drama, by dealing with darker adult themes in a never anything less than serious approach.

Sad then that these should be the last episodes - but also, brilliant they were made in the first place.

Extras: A tribute piece to Elisabeth Sladen, which is heartfelt and tearful - a great respectful send off.

Rating: 7/10
