Summary

A steam-powered robot causes chaos for Sarah Jane and friends, in this exclusive audio story read by Daniel Anthony.

Sarah Jane is thrilled when she successfully bids for a Victorian brass head in an antiques auction. On taking the metal model home, Mr Smith informs her that it contains a research probe from the future.

Sarah Jane speculates that the probe was used as the "brain" that powered the "Difference Golem", a mechanical servant built by eccentric inventor Sir Joseph Montague. She suggests destroying it, to prevent such advanced technology from falling into the wrong hands, but Rani persuades her that this would be wrong, as the golem could have been sentient. So she, Rani, Sky and Clyde travel to Holcote House, the former residence of Sir Joseph, in search of its body. But they are soon to discover that meddling with artificial intelligence can have dangerous consequences….

Daniel Anthony, who plays Clyde in the CBBC TV series, reads this exclusive audio story by Martin Day. The cover photograph shows Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane with Sinead Michael as Sky, Daniel Anthony as Clyde and Anjli Mohindra as Rani.

Astonished

I love the story, it gives you this "aftershock"... If you can call it that, which makes you think what humans are capable of doing, not only to each other but also to things like mechanics, chemicals, etc. The doctor who series was great, especially the classics ones since it makes you think of humanity, what you could do and you'll get more of what you expect from a Sarah Jane spin-off. These are not only for the adventures but also for stuff to think about after. I miss Elisabeth Sladen but it's good to hear how the other actors would tell the story, overall I give them five stars.
