Series 5 of The Sarah Jane Adventures aired on CBBC in 2011. On 4 March 2010, the BBC announced that it had officially commissioned both a fourth and fifth series of the spin-off.[1] Part of the series was planned to film in 2010 alongside Series 4[2] and it was later announced that half the series had been completed as planned.[3] With the death of Elisabeth Sladen in April 2011[4], the BBC announced that no new episodes will be made[5]. Three stories (six episodes) of series 5 were completed[6]. The final episodes aired between 3 October 2011 and 18 October 2011.

Stories Edit

Story number Title Writer Director Notes
1 Sky Phil Ford Ashley Way First appearance of Sky Smith.
Final appearances of Gita Chandra, the Shopkeeper and Captain.
2 The Curse of Clyde Langer Phil Ford Ashley Way Final appearances of Haresh Chandra and Carla Langer. Rather than a typical happy ending commonplace to SJA stories, this story has an unusually downbeat and ambiguous ending.
3 The Man Who Never Was Gareth Roberts Ashley Way Final appearances of Sarah Jane Smith, Luke Smith, Clyde Langer, Rani Chandra, Sky Smith, and Mr Smith and the 13 Bannerman Road residence.
Final episode of The Sarah Jane Adventures, with the series coming to an end prematurely after Elisabeth Sladen's sudden illness and passing.
