Let's see... they named it after the dog instead of after the most popular girl they ever had on the show, so the name of the show is stupid. The opening credits are awful, the theme song (if you can even call it that) is even worse than the visuals. They've got a 2nd-rate writer and a 3rd-rate director (I looked them up at the imdb) and as usual, John Nathan Turner doesn't know what the hell he's doing.

It's awkward to watch, Brendan is slightly less annoying than Adric (no, really), and Bill Fraser is slightly less entertaining than he was in "MEGLOS". And Colin Jeavons-- my God, I was trying to remember, where have I see that face??? You know, I could have sworn he was in "THE DAEMONS", but, no, he was Inspector Lestrade opposite Jeremy Brett.

Despite all this, it's STILL more entertaining than the entire Peter Davison run of DOCTOR WHO. But I put that down to Lis Sladen. She really was my favorite actress for 12 years running (before getting knocked down to #2 by someone else).

When they say "change in BBC management", was Michael Grade involved?
 
 
 
PS:  Nobody at PageFillers has reviewed this since some years before THE SARAH JANE ADVENTURES began.  Can you imagine?  You'd think somebody would have by now...

I think it was intended as a kids' programme.

Consider it Episode 00 of The Sarah Jane Adventures.
