Be Warned! The disc is made by the BBC and was originally meant to be played in the UK. I live in Canada. This Blu Ray disc is encoded as "All Regions". This means that it will function technically in regions A, B, and C. However, I found that although this is the case, it puts out video at 50 frames per second (not 60 fps, which is the north American standard). The end result is that supposedly you need a region A Blu Ray player with special functionality to play this disc (namely, one that can convert 1080p50i to1080p60i on the fly). I have tried 2 Blu Ray players (a 2007 Philips and a 2010 Toshiba) and the disc does not work in either. I had no choice but to return the disc to Amazon. Very unfortunate! I wish this had been more clearly communicated by Amazon or the BBC beforehand!

Great series. It is a regular in my house. The children ask for it daily. Sadly there will be no more as Elisabeth sladen passed away in 2011.

HASH(0xa06db600) out of 5 stars A Fond Farewell to Sarah Jane Adventures March 2 2012
By Lorin Chisholm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is the last filmed series of episodes of 'The Sarah Jane Adventures' before Elisabeth Sladen's unexpected death in April 2011. I'm glad to see that not only did BBC broadcast this final group of episodes, but has made them available around the world on DVD to fans of Miss Sladen and the show.

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. Producer & head writer for 'Doctor Who' 2005 - 2010) and his team who does not dumb down any of their writing or subject matter the way many children's and adult programs woefully do today.

The main attraction goes to star Elisabeth Sladen who always holds together the integrity of keeping the relationships as human and real as possible while surrounded with fantastical situations. The focus of the series is always on the building and maintaining of family, the respect between Sarah Jane and her younger friends, and always trying to do what is right even when it is difficult. These ethics come across loud and clear from Elisabeth Sladen's performance, which in turn inspired everyone who worked on the show to do the same.

Series 5 is a fitting showcase and finale for a terrific program.

HASH(0xa06db84c) out of 5 stars We will miss you Miss Sarah Jane Smith June 30 2012
By Kacie Llyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I still get tears in my eyes over the loss of Elisabeth Sladen. As a long time fan of the original Doctor Who (I started with Tom Baker's Fourth Doctor and his best-loved companion, fiesty reporter Sarah Jane Smith.) The Sarah Jane Smith Adventures was one of the better spin-offs I've seen (how could it be less? It was Doctor Who and Sarah Jane Smith), more child-friendly but often just as exciting as the also-wonderful Torchwood. Even though it was meant for a far younger audience than I, I found it a hugely entertaining series and looked forward to each release on DVD (unfortunately after the first season, none of my television channels carried it so I was forced to wait). Losing Ms. Sladen felt almost like losing a childhood friend, and I was so glad they released the last episodes. She was always Sarah Jane, always fiesty, always couragous, and always a lady.

HASH(0xa06dba8c) out of 5 stars Goodbye Sweet Sarah Jane....Season 5 June 26 2012
By Bruce Joyner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Elisabeth Sladen was a lovely person and an actor that i always looked forward to seeing on her show "The Sarah Jane Adventures".. To me she felt more like part of my family.
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...

HASH(0xa06dbd08) out of 5 stars Dr. Who adventures for the younger set... April 4 2014
By Susan Benson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I have all five seasons of this wonderful show. I found it quite by accident at my library. When I put together the pieces of the few newer Dr. Who episodes in which Elisabeth Sladen appeared, I fell completely in love with the series. It was so sad that we lost this wonderful actress too soon to do another five years. The series had enough story lines to go on and on.

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!

HASH(0xa06dbba0) out of 5 stars A fine ending. . . May 7 2014
By Dirk Griffin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I think this is a wonderful series for children from 9 to 92. The unexpected and unfortunate end of this show as it prepared to reinvigorate itself by introducing a new character and move forward is at once exciting, fun and deeply saddening. Ms. Sladen was every bit the lady and clearly loved by all who worked with her. It is a shame that she was taken so swiftly and it is our loss that she was.
