    You Would be better off buying each dvd series seperatly than the series 1 to 5 series box set. Going by the current amazon prices.

    Series 1: £8.49 (Also includes invasion of the bane)
    Series 2: £8.49
    Series 3: £8.49
    Series 4:£12.99
    Series 5 (preorder): £9.99
    Total price 48.45

    Series 1 to 5 box set £51.99

    You are 3 quid cheaper buying seperate

      How much is the delivery on this thing?because that adds up too.

    • SillyTilly

      December 29th, 2011 - 9:31am

      Amazon do free delivery

    • Nicholas

      December 29th, 2011 - 10:40am

      not all the time, but I expect this is on free super saver delivery. It is that do free delivery on everything

    • MasterKasterborous

      December 29th, 2011 - 11:04am

      Yes that is true but it is nice to have them all together (hopefully it will include Invasion Of The Bane) and also it will get cheaper over time it’s just because it is a new release.

    • Tardis Manic

      December 29th, 2011 - 12:00pm

      although it is £3 cheaper i think people would rather pay more and get all five series together in one box.

  • MasterKasterborous

    December 28th, 2011 - 11:41pm

    I hope this features all the bonus features from the previous releases and ‘Invasion Of The Bane’. I will wait until it is out an then read some reviews an then make my decision.

  • gordon

    December 28th, 2011 - 9:09pm

    Wouldnt bother waiting for a blu ray release. Series 1 and 2 werent recorded in hd. They could upscale it but it wont do much
    differnce to it. Plus the bbc have said they have no plans at this time to release blu ray of the first 3 series. (4 and 5 have already been released in blu ray)

  • Nicholas

    December 28th, 2011 - 7:54pm

    I never realised the guy who played clyde is 24

    • Commander Strax

      December 29th, 2011 - 1:52pm

      is that true?

    • videogamemad00

      December 29th, 2011 - 6:28pm

      yes it is true

  • Nicholas

    December 28th, 2011 - 7:47pm

    I will get it, If it comes out on blu ray


    December 28th, 2011 - 7:36pm

    i’m sorry, but that front cover is really dissapointing and boring. where are all the companions??? it is really dull!

    • Whovian14

      December 28th, 2011 - 8:10pm

      I think it’s because of Lis, and I think it’s supposed to centre Sarah Jane

    • dw555

      December 29th, 2011 - 12:26am

      I agree. Don’t know why they put a dark horde warrior at the top cause it was only ever seen in one episode for about 2 minutes. Shame its not very good 🙁

      R.I.P Elisabeth Sladen

    • Admiral Icktheus (Super fish)

      December 29th, 2011 - 9:27am

      The Dark Horde warrior is also on the series 4 boxset. All the monsters shown have featured on a boxset as well.

    • Commander Strax

      December 29th, 2011 - 1:53pm

      its in the name

  • Callumeales

    December 28th, 2011 - 7:26pm

    £51.99 on amazon realy expensize but great

  • King Ninja

    December 28th, 2011 - 6:47pm

    Uh, hope it’s not too expensive! Alredy cash less now Christmas day has passed!

  • SiManCoZeeAh

    December 28th, 2011 - 6:15pm

    The ‘Complete’ Collection, would imply that Invasion of the Bane is part of this set. Maybe it counts as a Special Feature because it is a Special.

    • Gee

      December 28th, 2011 - 8:15pm

      I have all the series that have been released so far and invasion of the bane was also included on the compleate series one DVD so I imagine it will be included there on the boxset too! 🙂 xx

  • Judooning

    December 28th, 2011 - 6:14pm

    My guess as to why they have not included ‘Invasion of the Bane’ is because they released this DVD seperatley years ago and it was the only SJA episode that was released seperatley on DVD. So in a way, it’s a tactical way to make us buy that seperate DVD.

  • sarahjaneadventuresnewspage1

    December 28th, 2011 - 6:11pm

    it has invasion of the bane because there is 12 discs
    series one box set – 4 discs
    series two box set – 3 discs
    series three set – 2 discs
    series four set – 2 discs
    series five set – 1 disc
    = 12 discs. Invasion of the Bane is on it.

    • videogamemad00

      December 28th, 2011 - 6:30pm

      Unless there is a disc of special features. Unlikely but possible.

  • David Morgan

    December 28th, 2011 - 6:08pm

    Anything On Blu-Ray?

    • Alex

      December 28th, 2011 - 6:10pm

      Yeah, I think it will be availible on Blu-Ray.

    • booboo

      December 28th, 2011 - 6:13pm

      cant find any listings for blu ray

    • Mr Master

      December 29th, 2011 - 9:16am

      Slightly off subject, but how come classic stories are never released on blu-ray

    • booboo

      December 29th, 2011 - 9:22am

      probably as there would be very little benefit i would imagine

    • gordon

      December 29th, 2011 - 9:42am

      Going by the picture quality of pyramids of mars on the SJA series 4 blu ray there wasntmuch improvement. I think they wont do it as restoration to blu ray quality wont be cost effective. They cost too much compared with how much they sell ie they wont make any money off it.

  • Alex

    December 28th, 2011 - 6:05pm

    I know I already nearly completed SJA, but I might buy this anyway.

  • David

    December 28th, 2011 - 5:42pm

    im so sad that she’s not with us anymore

  • Booboo Jr Jr ( A Link To The Doctor Who )

    December 28th, 2011 - 5:28pm

    It does say “All 2 Part Episodes” so invasion only counts as a 1 part.

    • Booboo Jr Jr ( A Link To The Doctor Who )

      December 28th, 2011 - 5:28pm

      Invasion of the bane I mean

  • Admiral Icktheus (Super fish)

    December 28th, 2011 - 5:14pm

    I currently own series 1-4 of SJA (with series 5 on pre-order) but, even though this doesn’t feature Invasion Of The Bane, it’s still a nice set for those who don’t have them all. Just like the audio collection which I’ve just started listening to. 🙂


    December 28th, 2011 - 4:55pm

    Nice, shame it doesn’t feature Invasion of the Bane. I might get it, how much will it be?

    • booboo

      December 28th, 2011 - 5:02pm

      about £50

  • SiManCoZeeAh

    December 26th, 2011 - 8:39pm

    The description on BBC Shop doesn’t say that Invasion of the Bane is in this set… just when I thought this set was perfect! 🙄

  • TheAwesomeDoctorDonna

    December 25th, 2011 - 2:24am

    I bought series 1-3 on dvd, didnt bother with series 4 as i heard about the sad passing of the great Sladen, so i knew they would release a boxset, i hope its in the same vein as the series 1-4 Doctor Who set, cuz it would look stunning, maybe have an outline of Mister Smith on the front, a few well known artifacts on the back with a shiny Sarah Jane Smith logo on sides and lid!

  • timelord22

    December 5th, 2011 - 8:51pm

  • The Whofan101

    December 3rd, 2011 - 10:38pm

    I shall buy this set, as I currently own no DVDs of The Sarah Jane Adventures, and think that this would be worth my money

  • MasterKasterborous

    December 3rd, 2011 - 9:44pm

    When it was announced that the series was ending I decide not to buy any of the DVDs in the hope that they would release this an they have which is fantastic.

  • Judooning

    December 3rd, 2011 - 7:49pm

    Don’t have a single SJA episode on DVD so this is perfect!

    • Adam

      January 1st, 2012 - 1:38pm

      I only have The Invasion of the Bane DVD

  • Adam

    December 3rd, 2011 - 5:43pm

    I haven’t got the DVDs released so far apart from Invasion of the Bane

    • gary

      December 3rd, 2011 - 5:47pm

  • gary

    December 3rd, 2011 - 3:30pm

    I have them all but I just want to buy this because SJA is amazing!! It was better than DW I think, such a shame poor Lis passed away. We love her!!

      Rest in peace Elisabeth, and offcourse the Brigadier himself, Nickolas Courtney who did make one appearance as the old Brig in her series.
