The Sarah Jane Adventures 2.7-8 – The Mark of the Berserker (parts one and two)

There’s no getting around it, this was a tough episode for our son. There’s a sci-fi plot and some side comedy, but the core of the episode is Clyde’s father coming back from out of nowhere, having abandoned his wife and kid five years previously. So it’s an important story that lets actor Daniel Anthony let down Clyde’s guard and be a wounded fifteen year-old for the first time. It drags a lot to the surface and left our son unhappy and confused. We had to talk a bit about families afterward, and why Clyde would still be willing to do anything for his dad, including reveal the secrets of Sarah Jane’s attic. I’ll leave it there, with extra cuddling.
