2|entertain have issued more details about the Series 4 boxset of The Sarah Jane Adventures, released on Oct 31st. The set will be available on DVD and Blu~ray, with an RRP of £20.42 and £25.52 respectively. Incredibly, the DVD extra is the 1975 Doctor Who story, Pyramids Of Mars - details below:
The fourth series provides ever more thrills and spills. In two special episodes written by Russell T Davies, Sarah Jane is reunited with another of The Doctor’s former companions, Jo Grant. They’re joined by The Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith) in an alien-busting adventure featuring brand-new vulture aliens, the mysterious Shansheeth and a trip to an alien planet. The series also features fun with enemies old and new, including the terrors of the Nightmare Man and a dangerous journey back into history.

Extras for this release include a Classic Doctor Who story, Pyramids of Mars as a tribute to Elisabeth Sladen who sadly passed away this year. Pyramids of Mars sees Sarah Jane Smith and the Doctor arrive at an old priory in the year 1911 where the owner, Marcus Scarman, has been excavating ancient tombs and soon becomes possessed by the spirit of Sutekh, bringer of 'the gift of death to all mankind'. Will Sutekh the all-powerful be freed from his bonds and destroy the world, or will the Doctor manage to bring about his destruction?

Thats a great way for youngsters who watch SJA to get a vaster knowledge of her, and classic Who.

That's a hell of an extra. Pyramids of Mars was the very first Doctor Who story I watched on PBS back in 1981, and it started my lifelong love affair with Doctor Who. They couldn't have picked a better story to represent Sarah Jane in my opinion. Nice job guys.
