Doctor Who the Sarah Jane Adventures
The Complete Second Season

With a variety of different spinoffs from Doctor Who, sometimes it's hard to wade through the good and the bad. Torchwood began quite slow, however it managed to land on its feet during the second season and became a fan favourite.

Than you have The Sarah Jane Adventures, a spinoff series starring the original 70's Doctor Who but set in current continuity starring Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith, one of this mythologies most remembered companions.

In the series, Sarah Jane Smith is older and has her own companions which include her son Luke (Tommy Knight), Clyde (Deaniel Anthony) and Rani Chandra (Anjli Mohindra) who invite the viewer on almost a childlike Doctor Who experience as they take on a variety of classic and new Doctor Who villains.

This is definitely for the fans and although I can see what the BBC were trying to achieve with this collection, it does feel a little too camp for my liking. The stories are actually quite ok to mediocre but I think the acting leaves a lot to be desired which just seems like a cash in on the Doctor Who premise as opposed to something more thoughtful like Torchwood.

The video quality of Doctor Who - The Sarah Jane Adventures: The Complete Second Season on DVD is actually good which is pretty much a staple of BBC TV shows to this format. It features sharp images and vibrant colours that compliments the story well, even though some of the special effects live in the world of Cheesevlile. 

Amazingly enough, the special features are pretty impressive for a C-grade Dr. Who spinoff that include interviews, character profiles, TV spots and even trailers. If you consider this Doctor Who-lite, you might get some enjoyment out of it but on a scale of 1 to 10, you're looking at a 6 and that's being generous!
