A crack in time and a lost child mean trouble for Sarah Jane in this thrilling story, read by Elisabeth Sladen.

Up early one morning, Sarah Jane is astonished to see that the house opposite hers has changed overnight: what used to be a nondescript 1970s family home has been replaced by a smart Victorian residence.

How did a house from 1884 suddenly materialise in Bannerman Road? Where has the old O'Brien place gone?


And more importantly, who – or what – has caused this temporal anomaly?


Sarah Jane and friends must find out before time itself explodes and destroys the world...

Sarah Jane and friends must deal with some deadly alien artefacts in this gripping story, read by Elisabeth Sladen
It seems like a regular, routine weekday: Sarah Jane is doing a supermarket shop (and trying not to embarrass Clyde, who is doing his work experience in Betterworth's) while Luke is at the Natural History Museum, helping to catalogue items and set up displays.


But their ordinary day is about to turn extraordinary, as forces from an alien world start to affect Earth and all hell breaks loose. With an icy void opening beneath the chiller cabinet, museum exhibits coming alive and terrifying monsters appearing, Sarah Jane, Luke, Clyde and Rani are soon fighting for their lives...
