Storyline

Visiting Sarah Jane Maria is shocked to find her place taken by Andrea, a woman of the same age group who has apparently lived in the house for years. A newspaper from over forty years earlier reveals that Sarah Jane, then 13, fell to her death from a pier where she and Andrea were playing. When Maria confronts her with this Andrea goes to her attic and conjures up a cloaked figure, the Trickster, who sends a dwarf called the Graske to transport Maria back to 1964, where she meets schoolgirls Andrea and Sarah Jane.

What would you do if you woke up and found Jane Asher living in your home???
23 August 2015 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is such a clever episode, when the gang are out skating, Sarah feels uneasy, like somethings walked over her grave. The trickster appears (Doctor who Turn left.) A meteor is heading straight for Earth, and would destroy it if it wasn't dealt with, when in range Mr Smith would destroy it at Sarah's command. Sarah Jane gifts Maria a magic box, remember was the message. The Trickster gets to work, and all trace of Sarah Jane has gone, and Andrea is in her place. Everyone has forgotten her, even the pictures have gone, Luke too. Maria discovers too much and suffers the same fate. Now it's up to her dad, who has the box, the remember and find her. Maria has learned that back in 1964 Sarah was with Andrea, but an accident killed Andrea, Sarah Jane survived, and a Graske has transported Maria back to that time and place.

Lis Sladen looks so beautiful, she seriously defied her years. I love how they matched her glamour with Jane Asher's.

The Trickster is brilliantly conceived, a real Dr Who monster.

It is such a clever story, brilliantly written, better then some of the nu Who stories. Jane Asher is brilliant, I love her scene with the trickster in the mirror, it's fantastic. 10/10
