13 Bannerman Road is where Sarah Jane Smith lives and it's home to things way beyond your imagination.

0:00:020:00:09

'There's an extra terrestrial super computer in the wall.

0:00:090:00:13

'Her son, a genetically engineered boy genius,

0:00:130:00:16

'a school girl investigator across the road,

0:00:160:00:19

'her adopted daughter from another world,

0:00:190:00:21

'and a whole universe of adventure, right here on the doorstep.'

0:00:210:00:26

-Ready?

-Always.

0:00:420:00:45

Where were you the day of the storm?

0:00:520:00:54

You know the one I mean.

0:00:550:00:58

No-one's ever going to forget that day.

0:00:580:01:00

THUNDER AND LIGHTNING

0:01:000:01:02

'I was at school.'

0:01:020:01:04

So then, Clyde. Your starter for ten...

0:01:120:01:16

What are the parallels between the fall of the French aristocracy in the 1790s

0:01:160:01:21

-and the credit crunch of 2008?

-Hmmm?

0:01:210:01:24

-Well, Mrs Pittman always says history can teach us stuff about the present.

-Yeah?

0:01:240:01:29

Hey!

0:01:320:01:33

The Silver Bullet?

0:01:360:01:38

Every crook is a target in Blood River City.

0:01:380:01:41

-Hey, this is good.

-Do think so?

0:01:420:01:44

Yeah. Really good. Don't see how he'll get you through your exam.

0:01:440:01:47

But this is what I'm going to do when I finish school. Comics.

0:01:470:01:50

The Silver Bullet's just one idea.

0:01:500:01:53

Wait till you see Susie June Jones, alien slayer.

0:01:530:01:56

Susie June Jones.

0:01:560:01:58

You're joking. Tell me you're joking.

0:01:580:02:01

Well, Sky, I hope you'll enjoy life at Park Vale.

0:02:030:02:06

Luke certainly flourished here.

0:02:060:02:09

I like to learn stuff. There's lots I don't know yet.

0:02:090:02:11

That's a very healthy attitude.

0:02:110:02:13

These days, too many students think they know it all.

0:02:130:02:16

Oh, Sky's a keen student.

0:02:160:02:19

Clyde says I'm a bright spark.

0:02:190:02:21

CRACKLING NOISES

0:02:210:02:24

What on Earth?!

0:02:270:02:29

Haresh, there seems to be a trout on your windowsill.

0:02:290:02:33

Excuse me, Sarah Jane, Sky.

0:02:330:02:36

Some of our pupils have an over-developed sense of humour.

0:02:360:02:41

SLAPPING NOISES

0:02:420:02:45

Did you hear that?

0:02:470:02:49

What's that?

0:02:490:02:50

-Oh boy!

-What's this all about?

0:03:020:03:04

Now this looks dead fishy.

0:03:070:03:09

Mr Smith, I need you!

0:03:240:03:26

Yes, Sarah Jane. How can I help you?

0:03:290:03:31

Have you got a good recipe for the biggest fish pie in history?

0:03:310:03:35

I have been monitoring reports of the unusual storm over London.

0:03:350:03:40

I love this planet.

0:03:400:03:41

When you think you get fish in the sea, they start coming out the sky.

0:03:410:03:44

There have been many reports of fish raining from the sky.

0:03:440:03:47

-There is a meteorological explanation.

-You mean it's natural?

0:03:470:03:50

Storms and tornadoes suck fish out of the water into the upper atmosphere.

0:03:500:03:54

They freeze, then later, they come raining down.

0:03:540:03:56

But those fish are small. Wouldn't satisfy next door's cat.

0:03:560:04:00

Mr Smith, the fish today, they were this big.

0:04:000:04:03

No? Well, still not natural.

0:04:050:04:08

-Mr Smith, I want you to scan for alien energies.

-Of course.

0:04:080:04:12

Oh, and, Mr Smith, better cast your net pretty wide. SHE LAUGHS

0:04:120:04:16

-Oh, don't encourage him.

-I'm glad Sky turned up.

0:04:160:04:20

Finally there's someone here who appreciates my comic genius.

0:04:200:04:23

Sarah Jane, you may be interested to know that the Museum of Culture

0:04:230:04:26

is currently staging an exhibition of totem poles.

0:04:260:04:29

Among them is what has become known as the Totem of the Lost Tribe.

0:04:290:04:32

Oh, my dad wants to see that.

0:04:320:04:35

Said they found in a cave, like it had been hidden.

0:04:350:04:38

-I still don't get the connection.

-It was discovered in the Mojave Desert.

0:04:380:04:42

A legend surrounding its discovery suggests when it was first removed from the cave,

0:04:420:04:46

a storm came out of nowhere, and it rained fish.

0:04:460:04:50

-What's in a museum?

-Dead things, mostly.

0:04:540:04:59

And people like to look at dead things? Isn't that a bit weird?

0:04:590:05:02

-If you ask me, yeah.

-Museums help preserve our past, Sky.

0:05:020:05:06

-They're fascinating places. You'll see.

-Mum and Dad met in a museum.

0:05:060:05:09

How romantic. Though I never saw your mum as the museum type.

0:05:090:05:13

-It was raining.

-Ah.

0:05:130:05:16

You got any spare change? Enough for a sandwich? Please?

0:05:160:05:19

-Yes, sure, here. Get a bacon butty or something.

-Cheers.

0:05:190:05:24

-Why did she want money?

-Because she's a scrounger.

0:05:240:05:28

-Why did you give her some?

-Cos it's probably not her fault.

0:05:280:05:33

-Isn't it pretty?

-I think the word you're looking for is creepy.

0:05:410:05:46

Look at those faces.

0:05:510:05:53

There really shouldn't be anything sinister about a totem pole.

0:05:550:05:58

They were a kind of storybook carved from cedar trees to represent

0:05:580:06:02

-myths or family histories.

-Glad they're not my family.

0:06:020:06:05

You're a funny-looking bunch, aren't you? Owww! Splinter!

0:06:050:06:11

We would rather you didn't touch the exhibits.

0:06:110:06:14

Sorry, Clyde didn't mean any harm.

0:06:140:06:16

Clyde Langer. I'm sorry. I just love art. Even when it does bite back.

0:06:160:06:20

Well, it looks like you came off worse.

0:06:200:06:23

-Oh, did you get a splinter, you big baby?

-My name's Sarah Jane Smith.

0:06:230:06:27

-I'm a journalist.

-Dr Samantha Madigan.

0:06:270:06:29

I run the anthropology department here.

0:06:290:06:32

I suppose you've made the connection between the totem pole

0:06:320:06:35

-and fish raining from the skies?

-It WAS the totem pole?

-Of course not.

0:06:350:06:41

-She's not really with us.

-My daughter has quite a sense of humour.

-Do I?

0:06:410:06:45

Have to say, I couldn't have wished for a better publicity stunt.

0:06:450:06:49

-Maybe Hetocumtek is on our side.

-I'm sorry? Why Hetocumtek?

0:06:490:06:54

Legend says Hetocumtek was a vicious warrior god who descended

0:06:540:06:57

from the skies and tried to enslave the people of the Great Plains.

0:06:570:07:01

But, the story goes that the tribes' greatest medicine men

0:07:010:07:04

came together and tricked him, imprisoning him in a totem pole.

0:07:040:07:10

-This totem pole?

-Well, 'tis only a story. Now, if you'll excuse me...

0:07:100:07:16

So what do you think, Sarah Jane? Hetocumtek -

0:07:180:07:21

-warrior god or nasty alien?

-Aliens masquerading as gods?

0:07:210:07:25

It wouldn't be the first time.

0:07:250:07:27

But I don't really believe in the magical powers of medicine men...

0:07:270:07:31

..and according to my scans, there's no alien energy here.

0:07:340:07:37

So if anything alien did cause today's shower of fish,

0:07:370:07:40

it wasn't this totem pole or Hetocumtek.

0:07:400:07:44

-Gotcha!

-Come on.

0:07:440:07:48

DRAMATIC MUSIC

0:07:550:07:58

Hello, love. Was that Sarah Jane giving you a lift?

0:08:020:08:04

Yeah, me and Rani were helping her mum at the shop

0:08:040:08:07

-and Sarah Jane dropped by.

-Oh, that's nice. Did you see the fish?

-Yeah.

0:08:070:08:10

That's school dinners sorted for the next week.

0:08:100:08:13

-Could've come battered with chips, though.

-They're saying it's some freak weather.

0:08:130:08:19

Anyway, I hate fish. When it's raining chocolate, let me know.

0:08:190:08:22

I'll go and set the table.

0:08:240:08:26

Oh, who needs chocolate when I've got my little Clydey?

0:08:260:08:30

Ah, the day it starts raining Clyde Langers, that'll be a miracle.

0:08:300:08:36

Sleep easy, Blood River City. The Silver Bullet is watching your back.

0:08:400:08:47

The End. Clyde Langer.

0:08:470:08:53

Step aside, Batman.

0:08:530:08:54

DRAMATIC MUSIC

0:09:030:09:07

Morning! What's the weather forecast today, then? Raining cats and dogs?

0:10:040:10:08

Sunny and bright, apparently. Not a halibut in sight.

0:10:080:10:11

Mr Smith hasn't been able to find anything to suggest an alien energy.

0:10:110:10:16

So maybe for once we can stand down.

0:10:160:10:18

Do you want to meet a hero who never stands down?

0:10:180:10:21

The Silver Bullet!

0:10:240:10:26

-Did you do this?

-Of course. What do you think?

-It's good.

0:10:260:10:30

It's really good. Is this what you want to do? I mean, after school?

0:10:300:10:34

Yeah, well, drawing's about the only thing I'm any good at, so...

0:10:340:10:37

Don't do yourself down. You're bright.

0:10:370:10:39

But there's no doubt art really is your thing!

0:10:390:10:42

And I love comics, so I thought, why not?

0:10:420:10:45

Look out, Stan Lee, here comes Clyde Langer.

0:10:450:10:50

Rocket scientist or whatever is fine if you're a super-brain like Luke.

0:10:500:10:54

-But me...

-What do you mean, "super-brain"?

-He is, isn't he?

0:10:540:10:58

-He's a genius.

-Yes, but the way you say it, it's a bad thing.

0:10:580:11:01

As if there's something wrong.

0:11:010:11:03

No. Sorry, I didn't mean anything like that. Luke's my best mate.

0:11:030:11:07

-Are you all right?

-No.

0:11:070:11:10

To be honest, I'm sick of the way you're always making fun of my son.

0:11:100:11:14

Sarah Jane, what's going on?

0:11:140:11:16

All you've ever done is tell him

0:11:160:11:17

how uncool he was, what a geek, a freak he was.

0:11:170:11:20

And all the time you're wasting your time with rubbish like this?!

0:11:200:11:24

My son is worth a hundred of you!

0:11:240:11:26

-And I've had just about as much as I'm going to take!

-Sarah Jane?

0:11:260:11:29

-Get out! Now! Take your stupid comic book with you!

-What's going on?

0:11:290:11:35

-I don't get it.

-Get out!

-This is crazy!

-You want crazy?

0:11:350:11:40

-I'll give you crazy!

-No!

0:11:400:11:43

-Hey, what's going on?

-It's Sarah Jane.

0:11:580:12:02

-She's just gone completely mental.

-What are you talking about?

0:12:020:12:06

Ah, Clyde Langer!

0:12:060:12:07

-You get away from me!

-What?

-Leave my daughter alone!

0:12:100:12:14

-What's going on? What did I do? I didn't do anything!

-Dad...

0:12:140:12:19

-keep him away from me!

-We're mates.

-Keep away from her!

0:12:190:12:22

-You're no friend of my daughter.

-This is mad. We're friends!

0:12:220:12:25

You're mad if you think I'd be any friend of yours. I hate you!

0:12:250:12:30

Rani...

0:12:300:12:32

I'll give you ten seconds. I don't want you anywhere near my daughter.

0:12:320:12:36

Understood? As far as school goes...you're excluded.

0:12:360:12:39

You can't do that.

0:12:400:12:42

Something's got at you. Both of you.

0:12:420:12:44

And Sarah Jane. I don't know what it is.

0:12:440:12:47

But none of it's real. Think about it...please!

0:12:470:12:50

-I haven't done anything!

-You're out of time!

0:12:500:12:52

Come anywhere near me again, I'm calling the police.

0:12:520:12:55

All right, I'm gone. But there's something going on here.

0:12:550:12:59

-And I'm going to fix it.

-You do what you like.

0:12:590:13:01

But I don't want to see you again! Not ever!

0:13:010:13:05

Sarah Jane, are you all right?

0:13:170:13:20

Yes, Mr Smith. I'm fine.

0:13:200:13:23

I am detecting an exceptionally high oscillation of beta brainwaves

0:13:230:13:27

suggesting intense anger.

0:13:270:13:30

-No, Mr Smith. I don't think so.

-Oh. How curious.

0:13:300:13:33

-Your beta brainwave activity is now normal.

-Sarah Jane. How do I look?

0:13:330:13:38

-Oh, you look marvellous! I'm so proud of you.

-Why?

0:13:380:13:43

-Because I put the school uniform on right?

-No, no.

0:13:430:13:46

Because you're on your way to school,

0:13:460:13:48

and you've barely been on Earth a month.

0:13:480:13:50

And I know this must all seem so strange to you,

0:13:500:13:53

but you're very brave, Sky.

0:13:530:13:55

Why do I have to be brave at school? Will people try and hurt me there?

0:13:550:13:58

No. No. No-one's going to try to hurt you.

0:13:580:14:02

Well, it will seem strange,

0:14:020:14:04

and you're going to be mixing with lots of new people.

0:14:040:14:07

-It's going to be so exciting.

-You see, that's what I mean.

0:14:070:14:11

-Oh, you're going to be brilliant.

-Will you be lonely without me today?

0:14:110:14:16

Well, actually,

0:14:160:14:17

I was thinking I might pay another visit to the museum.

0:14:170:14:20

-I thought you said the totem pole wasn't alien.

-No, no, it isn't.

0:14:200:14:24

This is professional interest.

0:14:240:14:26

Mr Smith, has anyone run a story on the mythological connection

0:14:260:14:29

between the shower of fish and the totem pole?

0:14:290:14:32

-It appears not, Sarah Jane.

-Perfect.

0:14:320:14:35

While I'm getting my scoop, you'll be making new friends at school.

0:14:350:14:39

-And don't worry, Rani will always be close by if you need her.

-And Clyde.

0:14:390:14:43

-SHOUTS:

-You keep away from him!

-Why?

0:14:430:14:47

Just do as I say. Keep away from him.

0:14:470:14:50

-Don't go anywhere near him. Do you hear me?!

-Yes, Sarah Jane.

0:14:500:14:53

I don't ever want to hear his name again!

0:14:530:14:56

-Excuse me, but has Clyde upset you?

-And that goes for you, too!

0:14:560:15:00

In fact, I want you to put your sensors on a permanent scan for him.

0:15:000:15:04

If he ever sets foot in Bannerman Road again,

0:15:040:15:09

I want you to deal with him.

0:15:090:15:10

-Understood, Sarah Jane.

-Sky! Come on! School.

0:15:100:15:14

Luke? It's Clyde.

0:15:250:15:28

Look, I'm getting freaked out here. Something's....

0:15:280:15:32

Luke...

0:15:320:15:35

No, no, listen to me! I'm your friend! There's something...

0:15:350:15:39

It's got to you, too.

0:15:390:15:41

Luke!

0:15:430:15:44

This is not happening. This is not happening.

0:15:470:15:50

-Had enough of sixth form, then?

-You all right, Steve?

0:15:530:15:57

-So, what, too busy to come and play football with your mates?

-Yeah.

0:15:570:16:01

-Sort of. I'm sorry. How's your job-hunting going?

-Yeah. Great.

0:16:010:16:07

Got a Chelsea scout coming down this afternoon to watch me play,

0:16:070:16:11

Quarter of a million a week, choice of my own WAG -

0:16:110:16:14

Girls Aloud, Saturdays, you name it. It's brilliant, isn't it?

0:16:140:16:17

-I'm sorry, mate.

-Fancy a kickabout?

0:16:170:16:21

Stuff to do. But, listen, Steve.

0:16:230:16:25

-It was nice to see you, man.

-No worries.

0:16:250:16:28

Look, I tell you what, I'll put in a good word for you.

0:16:280:16:32

I'll say, "Listen, Cheryl, I got a friend, Clyde Langer...

0:16:320:16:36

-"He used to be all right."

-Steve?

0:16:420:16:44

"Now in sixth form. Thinks he's better than his mates."

0:16:440:16:47

No. No, you've got it all wrong. You said my name! They all said my name!

0:16:470:16:52

Steve! Listen to me, OK.

0:16:520:16:55

This is going to sound crazy, but there's something wrong with my name!

0:16:550:16:58

-It's like it's cursed!

-We'll fix that!

-No, Steve.

0:16:580:17:01

You don't want to do this, OK? This isn't you. Just listen to me...

0:17:010:17:05

And that's what I'll do to you.

0:17:050:17:08

Get him! Stop him! He's getting away.

0:17:080:17:13

-Where did he go?

-Got to go somewhere.

-Look, come on!

0:17:280:17:31

Now what?

0:18:110:18:12

Oh, excuse me.

0:18:150:18:16

-Hi, Dr Madigan.

-Hello. Weren't you here yesterday?

-Yeah.

0:18:160:18:20

Look, you're an expert on totem poles and Native American stuff, right?

0:18:220:18:27

-And stuff. Lots of stuff, yes.

-Do you know anything about curses?

0:18:270:18:32

Native American curses? The most famous is the Curse of Tippecanoe.

0:18:320:18:39

It was, or is, a curse on the Presidents of the United States.

0:18:390:18:42

What about a curse that makes all your friends turn on you?

0:18:420:18:46

I'm sorry?

0:18:460:18:47

-I have to go.

-I'd advise you to keep your distance from him.

0:18:520:18:55

Sarah Jane, please, listen to me. This is some sort of curse.

0:18:550:18:59

You're serious? You think you've been cursed?

0:18:590:19:02

-He's a trouble-maker.

-He's clearly distressed.

0:19:020:19:04

All day, every one of my friends has been turning against me.

0:19:040:19:08

-I think it's something to do with my name.

-Don't waste your time.

0:19:080:19:11

-Your name? It's Clyde, isn't it?

-No, don't!

-Clyde Langer.

0:19:110:19:15

It's not just people that know me. It's everybody!

0:19:190:19:22

I think you'd better leave. Or do I have to call security?

0:19:220:19:25

-What did I tell you?

-Is there a problem, Doctor?

0:19:250:19:28

-Get him out of here.

-Right, out.

-No! It's the totem pole!

0:19:280:19:31

Oi! That's enough! Get him, lads!

0:19:310:19:33

Sarah Jane! Please remember me! I'm your friend!

0:19:330:19:38

Police? I want to make a complaint. I'm being harassed.

0:19:380:19:41

Mum?

0:20:020:20:03

Mum?

0:20:110:20:12

Mum...

0:20:220:20:24

Where've you been?

0:20:240:20:26

Just out. Why?

0:20:260:20:29

You're always lying about where you've been...

0:20:290:20:32

-No, Mum...

-More lies. Always lies.

0:20:320:20:35

Mum, whatever you're thinking, it's not real.

0:20:350:20:38

You've seen my name. It's messing with your head.

0:20:380:20:41

Don't touch me. How can I ever trust you?

0:20:410:20:44

-Always skulking around, keeping secrets.

-But this isn't real.

0:20:440:20:47

-I haven't done anything.

-I don't want you here.

0:20:470:20:50

I don't want to look at you, hear you.

0:20:500:20:52

I feel like I've had my soul torn out of me.

0:20:520:20:54

I didn't do this. It's not my fault.

0:20:540:20:58

Tell me what it is I've done! Tell me what I've lied...

0:20:580:21:00

You can't, can you? You can't because it's all a trick.

0:21:020:21:06

You've all been tricked - you, Sarah Jane, Rani. Everybody.

0:21:060:21:10

Yeah, I was tricked, all right. Life tricked me. The day you were born.

0:21:100:21:14

-I've had enough now. And I want you out of here. Out of my life!

-No!

0:21:140:21:18

You don't mean that! SIRENS

0:21:180:21:20

Mum, I love you. Please, don't do this.

0:21:200:21:23

KNOCKING ON DOOR

0:21:230:21:24

Police, open up.

0:21:240:21:26

-Don't answer it!

-And you wonder why I want you out of my life?

0:21:260:21:29

I haven't done anything. It's the curse! It's taking everything over!

0:21:290:21:34

He's through there.

0:21:340:21:36

We're not alone now. We got each other.

0:21:590:22:02

-ECHOING VOICES:

-'Oh, Clyde, you are brilliant.'

-'We are a team, Sarah Jane.'

0:22:020:22:09

BANGS ON DOOR

0:23:200:23:22

CLYDE SOBS

0:23:350:23:38

Are you all right?

0:23:430:23:45

Come with me.

0:23:510:23:52

Hiya. Sleep all right?

0:24:150:24:17

You'll get used to it. At least it's dry.

0:24:210:24:24

What was he thinking? Kipping out in the rain? Want to get sick?

0:24:250:24:29

Like things can get any worse.

0:24:310:24:34

If you want to try pneumonia, go for it.

0:24:340:24:36

No, look, I'm sorry. This is all...sort of new to me.

0:24:360:24:42

But thanks for bringing me here.

0:24:420:24:46

I saw you the other day.

0:24:540:24:55

-You gave me a couple of quid.

-Oh, outside the museum?

0:24:550:24:59

-Sorry, I didn't recognise you.

-Course not. People don't look.

0:24:590:25:05

-Scared they might catch something.

-No. It's not that.

0:25:050:25:07

I saw them chuck you out.

0:25:070:25:10

What did you do, unravel a bit of a mummy to blow your nose?

0:25:100:25:14

-That's not the only place I got thrown out.

-Look,

0:25:140:25:17

if you've had a row with your folks, go home.

0:25:170:25:21

With any luck, you'll be nice and warm in bed tonight.

0:25:210:25:23

-Spare us a thought.

-Yeah, but I've got no-one. My mum, my friends...

0:25:230:25:29

they're history. You're the first person that hasn't turned on me.

0:25:290:25:33

I'm Ellie Faber. What about you?

0:25:380:25:41

Enrico.

0:25:480:25:51

Enrico...Box.

0:25:510:25:54

OK.

0:25:560:25:58

-What are you doing?

-Having a clear-out.

0:26:090:26:11

-There's too much clutter in this attic.

-But those are Clyde's things.

0:26:110:26:15

He should've taken them with him.

0:26:150:26:17

I don't understand. What did he do to upset you so much?

0:26:170:26:20

Listen to me, Sky, and remember - I don't want to hear his name again,

0:26:200:26:23

and I don't want you to have anything to do with him. Clear?

0:26:230:26:26

-Yeah.

-Good.

0:26:260:26:28

-So how long have you been living like this?

-Two years.

0:26:490:26:54

-Time doesn't mean much here.

-How?

0:26:540:27:00

My dad died, and my mum married again.

0:27:010:27:06

Let's just say it didn't work out for me. OK?

0:27:070:27:10

I'm sorry.

0:27:100:27:13

Doesn't matter. You grow up fast out here.

0:27:130:27:18

-There's a load of stuff that happens...

-What sort of stuff?

0:27:180:27:21

It's like everywhere else. There's good people, and there's bad...

0:27:220:27:27

And there's the Night Dragon.

0:27:270:27:31

-What's that?

-Sometimes people disappear.

0:27:310:27:35

I mean, how bad is that? We've already vanished once.

0:27:350:27:39

-Maybe they find somewhere to go?

-And don't tell anybody they're going?

0:27:390:27:44

They're just gone.

0:27:440:27:47

And then the next morning people say "the Night Dragon took them".

0:27:470:27:53

And they never come back.

0:27:530:27:54

School chips... best chips in the world.

0:28:060:28:08

The menu said there was toad in the hole. Mr Smith said there are

0:28:080:28:12

500 species of toad. When I asked which one we were having,

0:28:120:28:16

the dinner lady didn't seem very pleased.

0:28:160:28:19

So Mr Smith gave you a basic grounding for starting school

0:28:190:28:22

by telling you about toads, and nothing about school dinners?

0:28:220:28:26

Sounds just like him.

0:28:260:28:29

I think he's nervous of me.

0:28:290:28:30

He doesn't like me too close, in case I blow his circuits.

0:28:300:28:33

He'll get used to you. You're one of the gang now.

0:28:330:28:36

-Like Clyde?

-Don't say that!

0:28:380:28:40

He was your friend... and Sarah Jane's.

0:28:400:28:44

No-one can tell me why you all turned on Clyde!

0:28:440:28:46

I don't feel well.

0:28:460:28:48

I looked you up on the internet.

0:28:540:28:56

You have a reputation for investigating strange phenomena.

0:28:560:29:00

So I thought maybe you'd come across something like this before.

0:29:000:29:03

-What happened?

-According to our security guard,

0:29:030:29:05

lightning burst out of the totem pole.

0:29:050:29:07

-That's impossible.

-Of course...

0:29:070:29:09

but I'm almost thinking there's truth in the legend after all.

0:29:090:29:13

But it was dead...

0:29:150:29:17

The myth says the medicine men

0:29:170:29:18

trapped the god Hetocumtek in the totem pole,

0:29:180:29:21

but warns that Hetocumtek would find a way to escape

0:29:210:29:24

if ever the totem pole fell back into the hands of men.

0:29:240:29:27

That's why it was hidden in a cave in Death Valley?

0:29:270:29:30

-Well, it's only a legend.

-PHONE RINGS

0:29:300:29:33

No...

0:29:330:29:34

Dr Madigan, I think it might be best

0:29:370:29:39

-to close the exhibition for a while. Just as a precaution.

-Of course.

0:29:390:29:43

You got any spare change, mate?

0:29:490:29:51

So you do this every day? Even in the rain?

0:29:510:29:55

Well, you're hungry, I'm hungry.

0:29:550:29:57

It's either this or going through the bins.

0:29:570:30:00

Yeah, I've done that too.

0:30:010:30:03

Have you got any spare change, mate?

0:30:040:30:06

You sound like you're flogging china down the market. Too cocky.

0:30:060:30:09

It's not cocky, it's charisma.

0:30:090:30:11

Whoever heard of a homeless person with charisma?

0:30:110:30:14

This is how it goes, isn't it?

0:30:170:30:20

Everything you ever were, everything you ever wanted to be,

0:30:200:30:23

it just gets worn away till there's nothing left.

0:30:230:30:26

The people that make it were always fighters. Survivors.

0:30:260:30:31

I'm one of them. You wouldn't believe some of the things I've done.

0:30:310:30:37

-Creatures I've seen.

-Creatures? Are you into wildlife, then?

0:30:380:30:42

Yeah. It was a wild life.

0:30:420:30:46

Let's go get something to eat.

0:30:490:30:51

-MR SMITH:

-Are you all right, Sarah Jane?

0:31:020:31:04

Yeah...

0:31:060:31:07

Something about that totem pole. It's alive, Mr Smith, I saw it.

0:31:070:31:12

Just for a moment. I know I did.

0:31:120:31:14

There's something terrible.

0:31:160:31:18

It must have been dormant on your first visit to the museum.

0:31:180:31:21

But there are now energies building around the totem pole.

0:31:210:31:24

But why? That's what worries me.

0:31:240:31:27

That's Max. He used to be a boxer, then he got too old.

0:31:370:31:41

He's been on the streets years.

0:31:410:31:43

That woman in the duffel coat...

0:31:430:31:45

Polish, came over to get married. Got dumped. Can't get home.

0:31:450:31:49

Polly the Porsche worked in the City.

0:31:490:31:51

Always telling everyone what she used to drive.

0:31:510:31:55

-Now she pushes everything she's got around in an old trolley.

-No way.

0:31:550:31:59

All of them, ignoring us on the street.

0:31:590:32:02

They wouldn't believe how easy it could be.

0:32:020:32:05

One day it just all falls apart, and you're here.

0:32:050:32:09

Steven's Point. Getting hand-outs.

0:32:090:32:11

All right, Mags? How's the tea leaves?

0:32:130:32:17

Hello, love.

0:32:170:32:19

This is Mystic Mags. This is my friend, Rico.

0:32:190:32:22

If you want the lottery numbers, she's your girl.

0:32:220:32:25

Mock - but there's strange things in the air.

0:32:250:32:29

-Yeah. Like fish.

-Something bad's coming!

0:32:290:32:32

-You mean the Night Dragon?

-Aagh! The dragon's coming.

0:32:330:32:38

I can see it in the leaves.

0:32:390:32:42

It's always in the leaves, before one of us is taken.

0:32:420:32:47

But this isn't no dragon. Something else.

0:32:470:32:52

And it's put its mark on you.

0:32:570:32:59

-What?

-There's a curse on you, and everyone what knows you.

0:33:010:33:07

-Cut it out, Mags.

-She's right.

0:33:090:33:13

-She's right, I'm cursed.

-What are you talking about?

0:33:140:33:17

I'm only ever going to get you into trouble, Ellie.

0:33:170:33:21

Thanks for trying to help me. But you can't, no-one can.

0:33:210:33:24

Hey, wait...!

0:33:260:33:28

-Rico... Rico, wait!

-My name's not Rico!

0:33:300:33:33

What? Your name's not really Enrico Box? Who'd have guessed(?)

0:33:330:33:38

-It doesn't matter.

-I can't tell you my name.

0:33:380:33:42

-She was right.

-What, you're cursed? Look at ME.

0:33:420:33:48

Welcome to the club!

0:33:480:33:49

-Loser!

-Watch it...

0:33:500:33:52

See? You can't be cursed. You're my lucky charm.

0:33:540:33:58

SNARLING

0:34:030:34:06

-Are you coming down with something?

-No, I'm fine.

0:34:190:34:22

You've not said a word since we left the shops. Come on, what's wrong?

0:34:220:34:26

Rani... Love, what is it?

0:34:260:34:29

I don't know.

0:34:310:34:33

It's like something's wrong...

0:34:360:34:38

It feels like...I've lost something really special, only...

0:34:410:34:47

I don't know what it is.

0:34:470:34:48

-That doesn't make any sense.

-I know it doesn't. And it's driving me mad.

0:34:490:34:53

But I can't shake it.

0:34:560:34:57

It's like... nothing's right any more.

0:35:000:35:03

My whole life, Dad, it's like...

0:35:050:35:08

it's like it's not me any more.

0:35:080:35:10

SHE SNIFFS

0:35:130:35:17

So, how are you settling in with Sarah Jane? Have you met Luke yet?

0:35:200:35:25

He's such a lovely boy. He was such big friends with...

0:35:250:35:29

-Mrs Langer...?

-This keeps happening to me.

0:35:300:35:34

Something comes into my head, and... I don't know what.

0:35:340:35:38

It's like, a part of my world has gone and...I don't know what it is.

0:35:380:35:42

-Is it Clyde?

-Don't use that name in my house!

-Why? I don't understand.

0:35:420:35:47

Everybody's turned against him, but nobody can tell me why!

0:35:470:35:50

-Just be glad he's gone!

-But Clyde's your son. Don't you love him?

0:35:500:35:54

-I told you, don't say that name!

-It's just a name, Mrs Langer.

0:35:540:35:57

-Clyde is your son's name.

-It hurts! Stop saying it!

0:35:570:36:02

That's it... It's his name, his name's doing all this...

0:36:020:36:05

It's going to be all right, Mrs Langer. Somehow, I promise.

THUNDER CRACKS

0:36:160:36:19

I've never seen so much thunder and lightning.

0:36:200:36:23

It's like flippin' Transylvania. Just wetter.

0:36:230:36:26

Why didn't we go back to Camp Cardboard?

0:36:260:36:30

The streets make people superstitious.

0:36:310:36:34

Mystic Mags will have told everyone you're "cursed".

0:36:340:36:38

Well?

0:36:380:36:40

Well, what we need here is paper.

0:36:410:36:44

Where were you the day of the storm?

0:37:110:37:13

You know the one I mean. No-one's ever going to forget that day.

0:37:130:37:17

I was at school.

0:37:190:37:20

I was on the street, and then this fish drops between my feet.

0:37:200:37:25

Splat!

0:37:250:37:26

It was totally random.

0:37:280:37:31

Well, at least you had something to eat.

0:37:310:37:33

Yeah, like I know what to do with a fish.

0:37:330:37:36

Might as well have rained bricks.

0:37:360:37:38

-Someone said it was a weird weather thing.

-Yeah, I heard that, too.

0:37:380:37:42

So, what if the fish was some sort of sign...

0:37:430:37:47

that something bad was coming, like Mystic Mags said?

0:37:470:37:51

-Worse than the Night Dragon?

-Yeah, really bad.

0:37:520:37:56

I've been through bad stuff in my life...

0:37:580:38:02

-Maybe it doesn't matter now.

-I don't understand.

0:38:020:38:07

For two years, I've been telling myself I'll get off the street.

0:38:070:38:12

I'll get on some sort of scheme. Get a job, get a flat.

0:38:120:38:18

Get my life back.

0:38:180:38:19

Meet a nice boy.

0:38:210:38:23

That was my dream. Now it's starting to come true.

THUNDER CRACKS

ROARING AND GROANING

0:38:430:38:48

It feels like someone has died? But you don't know who?

0:38:500:38:52

-It's like someone special has been taken from you?

-Yeah, that's it.

0:38:520:38:56

-That's exactly it.

-I've been feeling it, too.

0:38:560:38:59

-What's going on?

-Something really weird.

0:38:590:39:03

The only thing I can think is it's something to do with the totem pole.

0:39:030:39:06

There's an energy in it, it's been dormant

0:39:060:39:09

but it's getting stronger.

0:39:090:39:10

Getting stronger?! Since when?

0:39:100:39:12

Oh, some time after we all went to the museum.

0:39:120:39:16

-Argh!

-Since Clyde touched the totem pole?

0:39:160:39:18

-Since he got that splinter?

-Don't say that name!

0:39:180:39:21

Mr Smith, I need you!

0:39:210:39:22

-What are you doing?!

-It's the only way I can make you listen to me!

0:39:220:39:25

Mr Smith, when Clyde got the splinter from the totem pole,

0:39:260:39:30

-could it have activated it?

-Stop saying that!

0:39:300:39:32

-It is conceivable.

-None of this makes sense, Sky.

0:39:320:39:35

You turning your back on Clyde doesn't make sense!

0:39:350:39:38

Even his mum's thrown him out. She feels the same as you and Rani,

0:39:380:39:42

like something's been torn from her life,

0:39:420:39:44

-and she can't remember what it is!

-Well, it isn't him! I hate him!

0:39:440:39:47

Why, Rani? Think about it!

0:39:470:39:51

You both love Clyde.

0:39:510:39:53

You'd never turn your backs on him.

0:39:530:39:55

The only way this could happen is some alien messing with your heads.

0:39:550:39:59

-Clyde needs us.

-Stop saying that name! Please!

0:39:590:40:02

Sarah Jane, your reaction to his name suggests that Sky is correct.

0:40:020:40:06

You have been subjected to a psychophonic programming,

0:40:060:40:09

possibly designed to keep Clyde isolated.

0:40:090:40:12

-Well, say that's true. Why?

-Because Hetocumtek needs Clyde.

0:40:120:40:15

What if it's found a way to escape?

0:40:150:40:17

The longer Clyde's out there, the more powerful it's getting.

0:40:170:40:22

The legend said that if the totem pole fell

0:40:220:40:25

back into the hands of men, then Hetocumtek would escape.

0:40:250:40:28

The hands of men!

0:40:280:40:30

Clyde got a splinter!

0:40:300:40:32

It's a curse and you've got to break it!

0:40:320:40:34

That name. Just the sound of it, it's agony.

0:40:340:40:36

It hurts!

0:40:360:40:37

His name's the key.

0:40:370:40:39

His mum couldn't say it. Maybe if you can, it will break the curse.

0:40:400:40:45

Oh, it's no good.

0:40:550:40:58

You've got to! We've got to find Clyde!

0:40:580:41:00

It's the only way of stopping Hetocumtek escaping!

0:41:000:41:04

-We can do this, Rani.

-It's just a name. We can say it, right?

0:41:050:41:09

-OK...

-Say it! Say it! Come on. Clyde Langer! Clyde Langer!

0:41:100:41:15

Clyde...

0:41:210:41:22

Clyde...

0:41:240:41:25

Clyde...

0:41:250:41:27

Clyde!

0:41:270:41:29

-Clyde...

-Clyde Langer!

-Clyde...

0:41:300:41:33

-Clyde Langer!

-Clyde Langer!

0:41:330:41:37

BOTH: Clyde Langer! Clyde Langer!

0:41:370:41:40

Oh! Clyde Langer!

0:41:400:41:42

Oh...

0:41:460:41:48

Now the most important thing is we get Clyde back!

0:41:480:41:52

ROARING AND GROWLING

0:41:520:41:54

Look. What do you think?

0:41:590:42:03

That's brilliant.

0:42:050:42:07

I thought I could do this, like a street artist.

0:42:070:42:09

We could go to Covent Garden

0:42:090:42:11

and people will pay to have their portraits drawn.

0:42:110:42:14

-On the back of old paper bags?

-No, I'll get a drawing pad.

0:42:140:42:18

I've got the pencils. I'm telling you, Ellie, we can do this.

0:42:180:42:21

We can get off the streets together.

0:42:210:42:23

Stay here. I'm going to go and get us a coffee to share.

0:42:310:42:34

I feel like celebrating.

0:42:340:42:35

TYRES SCREECH OK.

0:42:360:42:39

Clyde!

0:42:390:42:40

Sarah Jane!

0:42:410:42:43

Rani?

0:42:430:42:44

Clyde!

0:42:440:42:45

SHE LAUGHS

0:42:470:42:49

I'm so sorry. What have I done?

0:42:490:42:53

We've been looking for you all night.

0:42:530:42:55

Thank Sky. The curse didn't affect her.

0:42:550:42:58

-She fought so hard for you.

-Thank you, Sparky.

0:42:580:43:00

Something alien is trapped in the totem pole.

0:43:000:43:03

And somehow it's using you to get free.

0:43:030:43:06

-If it does, we are in trouble.

-We need you back at the attic.

0:43:060:43:09

I've got to wait for someone - my friend!

0:43:090:43:11

There isn't time! We have to go!

0:43:110:43:13

I can't leave. You don't understand.

0:43:130:43:14

We have to go, Clyde! We have to go. Please!

0:43:140:43:18

-Ellie!

-Oh...

-Ellie!

-Clyde, listen to me!

0:43:180:43:23

That thing could break free at any moment!

0:43:230:43:25

I'm coming back.

0:43:300:43:31

-MR SMITH:

-Clyde. Welcome back. Sarah Jane, I have hacked into

0:43:360:43:39

a passing Chorium trading vessel's transmat systems.

0:43:390:43:43

-Mr Smith, do it!

-Locking onto the Culture Museum.

0:43:430:43:46

Bringing totem pole to the attic...now.

0:43:460:43:50

ROARING AND GROANING

0:43:500:43:52

The psychophonic curse must be reversed.

0:43:550:43:59

THUNDER CRACKS

0:43:590:44:01

Do as I told you, Clyde. Now!

0:44:010:44:03

ROARING GETS LOUDER

0:44:030:44:07

It's fighting back!

0:44:070:44:09

THEY SCREAM

0:44:090:44:11

What's happening?

0:44:110:44:13

Clyde, you're the only one that can stop all this!

0:44:130:44:16

THUNDER BOOMS

0:44:180:44:21

You tried to ruin my life.

0:44:230:44:25

To take away everything and everyone that was most important to me.

0:44:250:44:30

But I'm a survivor and you failed, you big plank.

0:44:300:44:34

IT SNARLS

0:44:340:44:35

My name's Clyde Langer!

0:44:370:44:39

My name...is Clyde Langer!

0:44:390:44:41

My name...is CLYDE LANGER!

0:44:430:44:46

Team Sarah Jane?

0:45:050:45:07

THEY LAUGH

0:45:070:45:10

Mum?

0:45:210:45:22

I love you, Clyde.

0:45:320:45:34

-She's not here.

-London's a big city, Clyde. Ellie could be anywhere.

0:45:410:45:45

I've got to find her. Come on, let's try Steven's Point.

0:45:450:45:48

Her name's Ellie.

0:45:500:45:51

16 or 17, with a green coat.

0:45:510:45:54

Have you seen this girl?

0:45:550:45:56

-Have you seen Ellie?

-No, sorry, mate.

0:45:560:45:59

-Have you seen this girl?

-Nah.

0:45:590:46:01

She was the only friend I had when...when you all turned on me.

0:46:040:46:07

And now she thinks I abandoned her like everyone else has.

0:46:070:46:10

But I haven't!

0:46:100:46:11

I won't, not ever.

0:46:110:46:14

-I will find her.

-I know, Clyde.

0:46:160:46:19

I just can't believe, after all the things we've seen,

0:46:200:46:24

the most alien world of all is right here.

0:46:240:46:27

And no-one knows. Because they don't want to.

0:46:270:46:30

Mate, have you seen this girl?

0:46:340:46:36

-No, mate.

-All right. Thanks anyway.

0:46:370:46:39

We can find her, can't we?

0:46:430:46:44

We've got Mr Smith. We find aliens.

0:46:440:46:47

We help them get home, right across the universe.

0:46:470:46:51

We can help Ellie, can't we? We can find her.

0:46:510:46:54

Clyde. Look.

0:46:540:46:57

"Ellie Faber".

0:46:570:46:59

It wasn't her name. She just took it off an old poster.

0:46:590:47:02

The Night Dragon took her.

0:47:060:47:08

What, that was the Night Dragon? A truck?

0:47:120:47:15

Comes by every so often.

0:47:150:47:16

The drivers will sometimes give you a lift,

0:47:160:47:19

Glasgow, Dublin, France, Germany...

0:47:190:47:22

they go all over the place.

0:47:220:47:24

It's another chance. That's why people go.

0:47:240:47:29

She's gone.

0:47:330:47:35

She meant a lot to you, didn't she?

0:47:360:47:39

Come on. Let's go home.

0:47:390:47:41

Luke! Oh, welcome home!

0:48:150:48:18

Hi, I'm Joseph Serf.

0:48:180:48:21

-Something weird happened.

-He glitched.

0:48:210:48:23

Enhancing...

0:48:230:48:25

If want to speak to Mr Serf, just to tell him there are no...glitches.

0:48:250:48:29

Call me Sarah Jane.

0:48:290:48:32

I can't shake your hand.

0:48:320:48:33

So, what, he's a hologram?

0:48:330:48:35

Gotcha!

0:48:350:48:37

What is going on?

0:48:370:48:39

CREATURE SNARLS

0:48:390:48:41
