The latest batch of Sarah Jane Adventures has been released by AudioGo, including Wraith World by myself and Mark Wright.
Hearing Elizabeth Sladen say our names has been a rare thrill. Of course, dear Sarah Jane Smith had left Doctor Who long before I started to watch the show, but I remember my introduction to everyone’s favourite companion inK9 and Company. I would never have thought I would be writing for her spin-off adventures nearly 20 years later.
A bizarre journal leads to terror for Sarah Jane and friends, in this exclusive audio story read by Elisabeth Sladen. Rani is delighted to hear that her favourite author, Gregory P. Wilkinson, is doing a signing at a local bookshop. When he agrees to be interviewed for the school newspaper, she is even more thrilled. And when the old man presents her with his journal, full of notes and sketches from his ‘Wraith World’ books, her happiness is complete. But all too soon her elation turns to horror, as the worlds of fiction and reality collide. Can Sarah Jane save Rani, Clyde and Luke from a creature beyond their wildest nightmares? Elisabeth Sladen, who stars as Sarah Jane in the CBBC TV series, reads this exclusive audio story by Cavan Scott and Mark Wright. The cover photograph shows Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane with Anjli Mohindra as Rani, Tommy Knight as Luke, and Daniel Anthony as Clyde.
UPDATE: There’s a lovely review of Wraith World at Unreality-SF. According to Linnea Dodson: “Wraith World is as close to a televised Sarah Jane Adventure script as possible – only without the limits of the CBBC budget.”
