Cover blurb:
With special appearances from The Eleventh Doctor and former Doctor's companion Jo Grant.

Having faced a chilling figure stalking their dreams, Luke leaves Sarah Jane and the gang as he departs for university with K9. But the planet won't save itself and there are still more adventures to endure: confronting the Men in Black at the Vault of Secrets; waking to find they are the only survivors of the human race; battling in different time zones against ghosthunters, Nazis and Tudors; and attending the Doctor's funeral where there's some old friends — and enemies.

Finally, Sarah Jane faces her saddest day: realising that no one can defend the earth forever she prepares to hand over to a new regime at Bannerman Road. But are the new incumbents completely trustworthy?

  • The Nightmare Man
  • The Vault of Secrets
  • Death of the Doctor
  • The Empty Planet

Note:  

  • This UK-exclusive release was the first available Blu-ray for The Sarah Jane Adventures. (Despite Series 3 also being filmed in HD, it was released on DVD only.)
  • Like the UK DVD edition, this also contains The Pyramids of Mars as an extra, marking the first time a classic Doctor Who story was released on Blu-ray — albeit in standard definition, since like nearly all classic series stories, Pyramids was mostly shot on video rather than film, and hence is not capable of being released in high definition. (Fans had to wait until 2013 for a "proper" HD classic series release on Blu-ray, namely Spearhead From Space.)
