I just watched the first of the new series of the Sarah-Jane Adventures. Of course this will be the last series for obvious reasons. It is sad and strange to watch Elizabeth Sladen on TV when you know she’s no longer around, but also I think she’d be really pleased that people are watching it.
I don’t know if it is just me, but I found the last series of Doctor Who a bit of a disappointment. I thought that it went off the boil half way through and the series finale was a real let down.
It may be that my expectations of this series were just too high, or perhaps the hype had set them too high? Also I think that when it started there were lots of really good plot lines that have simply been left hanging around and I think that’s a bit of a waste really.
I’m sure I’ll keep watching it, and the Christmas special seems to have a great cast, but it just doesn’t seem as good as before. Perhaps I just prefer the old style Dr Who. Maybe I’ll stick with that.
