Publisher's Summary

Sarah Jane Smith and her friends investigate a mysterious clinic in this thrilling new adventure read by Elisabeth Sladen.

When Sarah Jane disturbs a burglar in the night, she is surprised to find a middle-aged woman, her pockets stuffed with jewellery, demanding gold. The next day, she reads a newspaper story about a granny who broke into a jewellers, and then Maria reports that a woman has been stealing rings and necklaces from the girls' changing room at school.

All the women had recently attended the Auriga Clinic, a private health centre specialising in treating muscular aches and pains. Is there a link between the clinic and the odd behaviour of its patients? Sarah Jane decides to find out, but she soon discovers that the clinic's secret agenda is more sinister than she could ever have imagined.

Good story, perfectly performed

Although intended for younger audiences, this Sarah Jane adventure could be enjoyed by anyone who likes the world of Doctor Who. The tale moves briskly, and Ms. Sladen does a marvelous job at narration.

I loved it!

So this was my first ever audio book and I couldn't be more pleased. Elisabeth Sladen tells a tale that feels like an actual episode. Looking forward to getting the rest!

Good as Gold.

I LOVED listening to Elisabeth Sladen and watching her show. I miss her very much. I made a In Memory Quilt of her entitled "Look to the Stars, Sarah Jane is Smiling". Nancy Kraus

Great Sarah Jane side story!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Sarah Jane Adventures to be better than the print version?

I am sure there's some form of print edition of this but officially speaking, this is the first of 10 audio adventures. All, except the last two, are narrated by Elisabeth Sladen. The last two were narrated by Daniel Anthony and Anjli Mohindra (aka Clyde and Rani) due to the unfortunate passing of Ms. Sladen.

Which scene was your favorite?

There are a few favorite moments, but I am rather unwilling to say as it may be classified as spoilers for at least some. One moment I am willing to share without trying to give too much is when Clyde is involved in stake out. I just found it really amusing and found that scene smack on as I can envision it on the show itself.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The audio in its entirety was great. The author really caught the essence of the show. The fact that it was Sarah Jane herself reading this was great.

Any additional comments?

Chronologically, this story happens between The Lost Boy episodes, and the Thirteenth Stone audio adventure, which is followed by The Last Sontaron episodes.This has a very classic SJA feel to it. As I was listening to it, a small part of me couldn't help wondering why it wasn't presented on screen. The fact that this was written in Sarah Jane's POV, voiced by SJ REALLY helps.
