The popularity of Sarah Jane Smith is as much down to the brilliance of actress, Elizabeth Sladen, as it is to the sparkling scripts. Combine the two and you’re presented with a series of superb audiobooks for MP3 and CD that will keep listeners of all ages hooked right up to the last minute.
Wraith World brings a character from Sarah Jane’s past crashing into the present day. While she was at university, Sarah Jane was privileged to interview Gregory P Wilkinson, the author of the Wraith World books. Rani meets the author, who suggests that she might be the best person to write the next instalment – but can you judge a book by its cover or is there more to this weighty tome than meets the eye?
Cavan Scott creates a new approach to an old idea, littering his plot with twists and turns. However, he’s also mindful of his audience, undercutting any frightening moments with just the right smattering of humour to make it chillingly enjoyable.
Elizabeth Sladen is at the top of her game and, with 40 years of time travel and alien battling under her belt, knows just how to deliver a story. She is also aware of the age of her listeners and narrates with comforting warmth, so that even the scary bits are not too much for younger fans. This CD audiobook is wonderful entertainment for fans of Sarah Jane and Doctor Who alike.
