** Clyde Langer for Kelsey Hooper. Clyde appears to be a male, less annoying, and much less whiny version of Kelsey. He finds aliens exciting and interesting, whereas she was in a state of determined denial. She was dropped from the show; according to rumor this was to even up the gender ratio of the characters (three females and one male became two of each), however other reasons have been reported. (According to the 2011 novel ''A Romance In Twelve Parts'', Kelsey ended up joining [[Franchise/FactionParadox]].)

* LighterAndSofter: Compared to Sarah Jane's Big Finish series, and on occasion, the [[Series/DoctorWho main show]] itself.

* AdamAndEvePlot: On finding that he and Rani are (apparently) the last two humans in the world, GenreSavvy Clyde [[AllMenArePerverts immediately decides]] they're in one of these. Rani [[AllWomenArePrudes isn't so keen on the idea.]]

** Maybe because [[GenreSavvy undead, especially in spiritual form, are more associated with fantasy and not sci-fi.]]



* GenreSavvy: As of the fourth series, Clyde apparently keeps a flashlight on him at all times.

This was the ''second'' attempt to produce a Sarah Jane-centric SpinOff, the first being 1981's ''K-9 and Company''; only a pilot episode of that was produced, though. After a guest appearance in 1983's ''Doctor Who'' anniversary episode [[Recap/DoctorWho20thASTheFiveDoctors "The Five Doctors"]], and the charity special [[Recap/DoctorWho30thASDimensionsInTime "Dimensions in Time"]], Sarah Jane wasn't seen on TV again until her return in the 2006 episode [[Recap/DoctorWhoS28E3SchoolReunion "School Reunion"]]. Following the exceptionally good reception of that story, '''''The Sarah Jane Adventures''''' kicked off with a one-hour-long "pseudo-pilot"[[note]]So-called because, while a full series had been commissioned, production actually didn't begin until after the "pseudo-pilot" aired; presumably, had it bombed in the ratings production of the remainder of Series 1 could have been cancelled.[[/note]] special which aired on New Year's Day 2007, followed by a full series of ten episodes later that year.

Not to be confused with the earlier ''AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho'' audio drama series ''AudioPlay/SarahJaneSmith'', which used a similar setup, but is ''much'' darker and realistic in tone, as par for the Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse. Also not to be confused with ''Downtime'', a semi-fanmade direct-to-video production about Sarah Jane.
