Summary

10 thrilling adventures for Sarah Jane and her friends, as seen on TV, read by Elisabeth Sladen, Daniel Anthony and Anjli Mohindra.

Sarah Jane Smith always finds herself in trouble. As an old friend of the Doctor she's used to encountering aliens, battling monsters and defeating evil. Along with her friends Luke, Clyde, Rani, Maria and Sky - not to mention supercomputer Mr Smith - Sarah Jane and her trusty lipstick are prepared for anything the universe throws at them.

In these amazing stories, Sarah Jane finds herself investigating a private health clinic, a mysterious stone circle, some lethal alien artefacts, a strange Victorian house and a bizarre hill-carving. Then there's the camping trip that sees the friends stranded in Snowdonia, the deadly computer virus, the terrifying creatures from a world of nightmares, the steam-powered robot, and the race of aliens who think Sarah Jane is a dangerous law-breaker....

Specially written for audio, eight of the stories are read by Elisabeth Sladen (Sarah Jane), one by Daniel Anthony (Clyde) and one by Anjli Mohindra (Rani).

Chapters and details wrong

While readings are of course great, trying to navigate using Audible is tricky as multiple stories are merged, and some titles are wrong.

I know it’s cheap / good value - but it would be nice to be usable!

Poor packaging again by Audible

This is a decent collection of Audios linked to the Dr Who TV spin-off starring the late Lis Sladen, aimed more at the teenage and pre-teen audience than Torchwood or the main Dr Who novels, and excellent value to have in one place for one credit.

Unfortunately, despite the original audios being out for years and a pre-order window of over 4 months, Audible UK have shown their usual haphazard lack of care in the packaging and chapters. The very first story is titled wrongly, for example (it's Glittering Storm, not Stone) and 4 stories are lumped together in one chapter and title in the middle of the collection.

This sloppy lack of care seems to have been a feature since Amazon, with their stack it high sell it cheap approach, took over Audible. Much more care is needed from the company in presenting product in a quality way.
