Brief Synopsis:
This is an attempt to take the two parter Sarah Jane Adventures serial "The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith" and turn it into one of the 2009 Doctor Who specials for outgoing Doctor David Tennant.
Intention:
I always thought The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith would fit much better as one of the last David Tennant DW specials, and so I took the liberty of joining the episodes together (SJA is a half hour show and is often serialized more than New Who is), and making it work as one.
Other Sources:
Whoflix's shortened Doctor Who theme.

Cuts and Additions:
- Cut approx. a minute from the beginning of "Part One", including titles and writers/directors credits.
- Opening titles with David Tennant and Elizabeth Sladen credits taken from "The Stolen Earth/Journie's End" titles and used a shortened version of the 2009 version of the theme song as this is considered part of the "Ten Farewell Tour" specials
- Story proceeds as normal until the arrival of The Trickster at the reception.
- Cut one minute and twenty-three seconds from the begining of "Part Two", which is mostly all a reprise of part one. Removed Director's credit
- Removed Sarah Jane and the kids saying what a fantastic person The Doctor is and what a fantastic team they make, removed "next time" for next SJA adventure and end credits, we now close the episode as the TARDIS door closes on The Doctor
- Omitted Credits

I greatly enjoyed this edit, especially not having to watch two parts. The changes made were spot as was including Dr Who opening and closing titles, thouhg I would have liked to have seen full titles included and it did feel a tad jarring that both ends were notably shortened.
Recommended for fans nevertheless. Great work!

One of my favorite serials from the Sarah Jane Adventures perfectly re-cut into a 51 minute episode that feels completely in place as an in-between series special of NewWho. Absolutely worth the watch if you're looking to rewatch this top tier episode or even if this your first experience in the world of Sarah Jane!

A very enjoyable edit of a charming bittersweet Sarah Jane adventure.
The joining of the two episode plays seamlessly--exceptionally well done and fun to watch!

This honestly felt like a true DW special, and what Zarius had achieved with this edit is pretty great. The story works well too, as a combination of two parts.

This edit has done well what it's goal was, and it definitely works. Fantastic job Zarius!
