the story is set in the tv show's second season, sometime after the first story, as it features the new character rani who first appeared after original character maria left.
the story runs for approximately one hour and five minutes. It involves sarah jane visting a supermarket where main character clyde is working, whilst her son luke is working at a museum. strange things happen in both places, and sarah has to enlist the help of rani [who doesnt appear till the last third of the story]. an alien force is at work here, and seems to be controlling an old man. what is it's agenda, and why does it want three particular objects?
franchise fiction of this kind can stand and fall on the strength of the story, as generally it's constrained by not being able to do anything different with the characters. this works quite well. it takes a little while to get going but that does rather help because for a long time you're as in the dark as sarah in regards to what's going on. ultimately once you know what the alien force is up to it's nothing too surprising, but the final scenes in a scrap metal yard are quite original and would have great to see on the tv screen.
and elisabeth sladen is a very good reader and a pleasure to listen to.
ultimately nothing earth shattering but a pleasant listen and well worth getting if you want a new sarah jane story
There are a couple of slow moments in the story, but on the whole it whizzs along fairly quickly and is an entertaining piece of storytelling.
Sarah Jane is noticing strange behaviour from one of the staff, only to find it is, in fact, Clyde, who is in turn noticing strange behaviour from an old man, one of Sarah's neighbours. I found this to be the best part of the story, better than the settings in the middle, (the museum where Luke was working) and the end (car scrapyard place).
What I like about this too is that you get good music and sound effects, not all the time, but at parts in the reading, which greatly adds to the atmosphere. (In some of the earlier stories on audio, there was no music or sound effects, just a straight read).
Elisabeth Sladen is always good to listen to, she does a good job of conveying the other characters' voices and personalities, especially Clyde.
Other good audios in the series are: Ghost House, and White Wolf. The rest are not so good, but still worth a listen if you like Sarah Jane, as I do. I just wish they would do a full cast audio drama of the Sarah Jane Adventures as well, as has been done with Torchwood. But even if they don't, I look forward to some more SJ audios raad by Elisabeth as she does a great job with the reading. Add to that the music, much to enjoy all round.

Luke macht sein Praktikum im Naturkundemuseum und auch er findet ein seltsames Objekt auf das sein Chronograph empfindlich anspricht. Er nimmt das Objekt sofort auf der Ausstellung und schließt sich damit in einem Raum ein. Erst als die herbei gerufene Sarah Jane da ist, öffnet er zumindest ihr die Tür. Doch während unsere Helden noch darüber rätseln, was es mit diesen Objekten auf sich hat, taucht auch der ältliche Nachbar im Museum auf und plötzlich erwachen etliche Ausstellungsstücke zu neuem und unnatürlichem Leben.
Wieder eine nette – wenn auch wenig überraschende – Geschichte, die Elisabeth Sladen – bis auf einige zu emotionsbetonte Passagen – zufriedenstellend vorträgt.
