We Review the Latest and Final Series of The Sarah Jane Adventures in Hitchhiker's Guide to British Sci-Fi 20

Less than a year ago we lost Elisabeth Sladen. At that time, only six of the twelve episodes for the fifth series of The Sarah Jane Adventures were shot. Fortunately, we got to see those six episodes starting last October on the CBBC. In this latest episode of Hitchhiker's Guide to British Sci-Fi we review this abbreviated and final series. Join Dave, Graeme, and myself as we bid farewall to the series.

Plus other news including Blake's 7 and the new forthcoming Aliens vs. Wizards and more.

Terry Nation Would Had Been 81 Today (Yesterday)

Terry Nation, the creator of the Daleks (with nods to Raymond Cusick who designed them and of course Davros himself) for Doctor Who as well as the creator of the popular British sci-fi series, Blake's 7 would had been 81 years old today (well, now yesterday (8th of August) by the time you are reading this unless you are in Hawaii for the next hour or two). Of course his credits extend further than Doctor Who and Blake's 7. There was The Survivors, and episodes of various televsion series he contributed to both in the UK and US during the course of his career.

Terry NationWe lost him all too soon at the age of 66 in 1997. It was about ten years (give or take) before then when I had an opportunity to sit down with him and interview him. Unfortunately, the audio of that interview has slipped through a time vortex or a crack in space. Hopefully it is re-materialize at some point. I don't even have any photographs to share from that time. Perhaps like so many other cast and crew that I was meeting at that time I assumed there will always be the next time if I didn't get a photo that time. Sadly, there was no next time in my case with Terry Nation. 

My memories of Terry Nation is that he was very open about his work. You could tell he enjoyed having the opportunity to speak about it. There was certain intensity about him. He would be quick to correct you if presented with information that didn't jive with what he knew to be the case. Not in a rude a way, by any means.
