Investigative journalist Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen), one-time companion to that strange wanderer in time and space known as the Doctor, is back for more alien-busting adventures. True to the thrill-a-minute mix of action, drama and humour that made this series a hit, season four of The Sarah Jane Adventures arrives on DVD and Blu-ray on 31st October 2011 courtesy of BBC DVD.
Created by Doctor Who supremo, Russell T Davies, The Sarah Jane Adventures follows the exploits of The Doctor's former companion along with her young supersleuth gang - school friends Luke, Clyde and Rani. Together they've prevented a warrior Sontaran from blowing up the planet, rescued missing children from the clutches of a sinister clown, battled the evil reptilian Androvax who can hide inside humans and saved the world from a deadly plant.
The fourth series provides ever more thrills and spills. In two special episodes written by Russell T Davies, Sarah Jane is reunited with another of The Doctor's former companions, Jo Grant. They're joined by The Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith) in an alien-busting adventure featuring brand-new vulture aliens, the mysterious Shansheeth and a trip to an alien planet. The series also features fun with enemies old and new, including the terrors of the Nightmare Man and a dangerous journey back into history.
Extras for this release include a Classic Doctor Who story, Pyramids of Mars as a tribute to Elisabeth Sladen who sadly passed away this year. Pyramids of Mars sees Sarah Jane Smith and the Doctor arrive at an old priory in the year 1911 where the owner, Marcus Scarman, has been excavating ancient tombs and soon becomes possessed by the spirit of Sutekh, bringer of 'the gift of death to all mankind'. Will Sutekh the all-powerful be freed from his bonds and destroy the world, or will the Doctor manage to bring about his destruction?
