4.0 out of 5 stars crack in time, 1 Feb. 2009
This review is from: The Ghost House (Sarah Jane Adventures) (Audio CD)
another talking book from the bbc based on the tv shows the sarah jane adventures, with elisabeth sladen who plays sarah jane smith on tv reading an all new story based on the programme. the disc runs for approximately one hour and five minutes.

As with the others in this range elisabeth sladen has an excellent reading voice and is a pleasure to listen to, and she does some good versions of the voices for the other characters from the programme, and some nicely varied ones for the other characters that are new to the story.

this story involves strange events on bannerman road, where sarah jane lives. an ordinary sunday morning is interrupted when sarah jane notices that a house on the road has suddenly been replaced by one from the 19th century. trying to investigate what has happened leads to an adventure involving travel between two different years, aliens, and a race against time to prevent the world being destroyed.

business as usual, then. but the story manages to succeed thanks to the quality of the production. all the characters are written well and you can imagine this story working on tv. and the atmosphere is very well done, using a piece of victorian style music that gets abruptly halted at points by events. the effect of this is very good. there are a couple of good moral lessons in it about communication and making the most of your life, but they never overwhelm things and make the listener think for themselves.

another decent listen in a decent range that will keep fans of the show more than happy
