Final Haul

Originally posted by Nabu San:

Thursday's broadcast of Mona Lisa's Revenge brought in a staggering 1 million viewers with a 7.4% share of the audience! That's the second highest viewing figures for series three since The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith, Part 1 aired a few weeks ago - and this was without a cameo by the Doctor!

Like Wedding, the second half pulled in fewer viewers with only 0.8 million peeps tuning in. Which isn't the best, but it's certainly respectable for a slot that usually brings in an average of 0.4 million viewers. :)

With the penultimate two-parter out of the way, the series finale is approaching fast! In just a few days, we'll have said our goodbyes to the show for yet another year! But with stories already being penned for next year and the possibility of a 60-minute SJA special written by Gareth Roberts in the works, the future of our beloved Sarah Jane Adventures seems all but secure!

You only need to be concerned with filling up time between seasons, during which the inevitable SJA withdrawal kicks in(!) One option's to purchase the recently released second series boxset, currently available in the UK and US:

For those of you who haven't bought it yet, that's what you can expect from the UK boxset - which, judging by last years first season release in America, is probably going to be more aesthetically pleasing than its US counterpart.

Aesthetics may possibly be all the second series set has going for it, though - 'cause unless you're after the episodes alone, you'll probably be disappointed at the extras [or lack thereof] featured on the discs. Though in all fairness, for the low-low price of £12.98 - you get what you pay for.

In other news, don't forget to enter our competition to win one of five tickets to Memorabilia this Sunday, where you'll have the opportunity to sit in on a panel with Tommy Knight, Daniel Anthony and Anjli Mohindra - and get some stuff signed by 'em too! Deadline for the competition is midnight tonight, and five randomly selected winners will be announced tomorrow! And...

Remember!! The Gift Part's One and Two, the series three finale two-parter, will be airing this Thursday and Friday @ 4:35pm, on BBC One/HD!
