The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith
Okay that made for an interesting change as the gang help a cute little troublesome alien and Sarah meets someone and falls in love and sets up a fast wedding. Thing is I've had someone, a friend of mine, do the same and we had the same suspicions: that he was an alien after her money but it turns out he was a great person and a great guy and loves my friend. Why can't Sarah just have that? Of course this all goes south once the ending comes and Tennant is only in about 30 seconds. How unfair is that? Still this goes nicely but I still wish they'd dump Rani's parents and they really don't even need Rani. Clyde is rather good in this episode. I like that it happens over many weeks and it kept my interest more than the first two stories and the acting was good but does Sarah need to get taken over every story now? And what a small wedding. Does she really have so few contacts and friends? They had to strand the Brig in Peru again and where is Brendon Richards? Maybe they should do a story where he comes back and is not an alien! Is it my imagination or are the musicians trying to the K9 AND COMPANY theme. Glad to see K9 back.
Also, the woman doing the wedding is the same woman who played Ping Cho in MARCO POLO, the 7th story of DOCTOR WHO ever! In Hartnell's time! In addition she played Sandra in SPACE: 1999 and even did a finale fan made, tv show writer written finale to SPACE: 1999. And she's great. Too bad she didn't get a bigger part.
Is the sonic lipstick really deadly?
Does Sarah really have to talk to herself?
And why, again, well it IS this show, does Sarah have to be made such a loser? She never was in the REAL Doctor Who tv show. :)
