The Sparticle Project was switched on.
All our teachers hid from us.
-What are you up to?
-Anything I want.
-Leave her alone.
-Jeffrey, my brother, he's got cerebral palsy.
I've got Doomsday Dora's message on here. You'll see.
No, you'll see when I tell the others about you and your pranks!
You must travel to the Sparticle Project.
The future of the world lies within your hands, children.
Reese, give me Dora's laptop!
You're not having it! You don't believe me!
But it's evidence of what happened to the adults.
We need to see it. Please.
Yeah, show us your "evidence", Reese. We could do with a laugh.
Arctic Fox to Snow Goose.
Mother Duck to Arctic Goose Foxtrot.
It's bath time.
Fly, Snow Goose, fly!
-Reese! Come back here!
Look out. No!
You must travel to The Sparticle Project
and realign our dimension with your dimension.
We'll be working hard on our parallel planet,
and you must do the same on yours.
I tried to warn them but no-one believed me.
I knew that the energy produced when the machine was switched on was
going to be boosted to far higher energies, bigger, stronger, much...
much more powerful.
'Dora. Are you in there?' >
I will help you all I can in your great and noble quest. Goodbye.
Good luck, and see you at the Quantum Portal.
That was a great short film, Kat!
Rubbish quality but she was good.
-Got any more?
-Liam, that was a real message from a real person.
Dora recorded it before they turned on the biggest machine in the world
which made all the adults disappear.
-Who did she try to warn?
-Why didn't they listen?
It's where our dimension and the adults' dimension will meet.
Oh. Will Buzz Lightyear be there?
-This is serious. Listen.
You must travel to The Sparticle Project and realign...
POWERING DOWN NOISE
Must be the electricity. I'll go check.
If we do go looking for The Sparticle Project, where would it be?
The location is top secret. It could be anywhere.
I'm not walking to Manchester!
What will we do when we get there? There won't be a big button saying
"Press here to bring your parents back."
Dora will tell us what to do.
If you think I'm listening to you...!
It's the mains supply. It's failed here.
Probably has everywhere else. The water will probably go next,
and then, who knows. But we need adults to fix it.
I want Mummy.
My Dad, I'm all he's got. It must be the same for the parents without us.
Who votes we go to the Sparticle Project to bring them back?
OK, so I'll draw up a shortlist
of who goes and who stays to look after Liam and Frankie.
So you're in charge now, are you?
-Oh, cos you can find the Sparticle Project, can you?
-If you can, I can!
Who wants to have some fun? A game.
The challenge is to sort out a power supply for the hotel.
Sadiq and Kat are team leaders.
Whoever wins gets to lead the Questers to the Sparticle Project.
Good. Now shake on it.
Kat, we have a proposition for you.
We've got information, a secret weapon to win the challenge with.
Sadiq's offered to teach us to drive.
Beat that, and the information's yours.
Sorry, I already have a plan.
We'll sell our information to Sadiq.
Go ahead. You play your driving instructor games.
That'll keep Sadiq busy while I'm on the way to the Sparticle Project.
-I know where to go.
-Let's get going.
Wait, we haven't picked our teams yet.
Ooh. Too slow. I've got my team. Laters.
Wait for me!
Your necklace, it hurts my head.
It's like she has a sixth sense or something.
Holly thinks she's taking you for a mug.
< Great idea, Jordan. Let's go look.
We've lost then, haven't we?
I saw these scientists on telly once
and they built this huge hamster wheel,
and they ran in it to create electricity.
Yeah, well, anyway.
Can't you just hear me out for once?
-I've got things to contribute, too, you know!
Like I do loads of stuff, don't I?
OK. Well, me and Ami are going go and get the equipment.
Why don't you, er, look after these two?
You can manage that, right, Tia?
Hey, Liam, fancy some ice cream?
-Maybe the ice cream's in here!
-Better be quick, before it all melts!
This is great!
Look at me.
SHE IMITATES A GUITAR
Yeehaw! Na-na, na-na, na-na-na!
May I take your luggage, madam?
Is the penthouse suite available?
For you, madam, we have the mega-penthouse!
It's even suite-er!
That wasn't a rat, right?
You're such wusses.
-Fear not, Super Jeff will protect you!
-You're not super.
-Course I am. Look, I can fly.
Jeffrey! Check him for concussion.
Let's get him back in the Jeffmobile.
-I can talk for myself, you know! Calm down.
-What were you thinking?
You can't wrap me in cotton wool!
Lads! Jeffrey's fine, so let's go win that challenge, OK?
Come on then, dynamo, do your stuff.
MUSIC STARTS AND FALTERS
MUSIC SPEEDS UP
I need more bikes.
And more pedallers.
I've got a new...game!
Maybe we should go now, Frankie.
Tia will be in a mood.
Liam, what have you done?
Where are you?
These wind turbines should solve all our problems.
-You sure you know what you're doing?
I thought they were with you.
So did I.
Here it is.
Is this a museum?
He was a miner in that
gold mine in South Africa and the one in Yorkshire.
Said it finished him off.
Hey, enough of the guided tour.
-How do we get to the garage?
-Blasting in ten, nine.
Louder than usual.
Ta-da! The secret weapon for success.
Solar panels! Eco-energy.
Light bulb moment, Jordy! You, me, Jeff on the quest.
It'll be pretty cool.
Oh, come on! How can Jeffrey go?
Your brother's tougher than you think.
We're not going!
Either of us.
What are you doing? That's private!
Every photo of Jeffrey, you're there, too,
like he can't manage without you.
Or you can't manage without him.
Since I was a kid, all Mum and Dad ever said was
"We need your help to take care of Jeff."
I didn't mind, not really.
But now it's ALL up to me.
What if something happens to him?
Something happen? To Jeffrey?
Think about it. Who dragged Anita out of the lab full of gas?
Where are you? Frankie? Liam?
No-one knows we're down here, Frankie.
'Help! Help, please!'
'We're in the basement!'
I'll come get you!
Can't you feel the energy?
What are you on about?
It magnifies everything.
All the sound...
and the light...
all the powers we can't see.
'Reese, can you hear me?'
It's a hypoglycaemic episode.
A kid at school has them.
I saw it. The light.
-She's doing it again!
-There's nothing here.
But it's right there.
'Cute Cats 2008'?
Put the torch down!
In here! Get Sadiq!
-Sadiq's not back yet. I can...
-I want Sadiq! You're useless.
-I'm not useless! I'm going to get you out!
-"Luminite. Black Tor Mine, 1957." The magic mine.
The Victorians called it the magic mine.
Luminite was only ever found in one place,
the Black Tor Mine in Yorkshire.
Reese felt its presence, just like she saw Anita's pink child's heart.
You tipped Reese off! You and Jordan told her
-where your Granddad's stupid rock was!
-Why would he do that?
-If you were running a hoax.
-But you saw what it did, Holly.
Yeah, so? Some crystals reflect light.
Look, we have a real problem we need to solve. We don't have time
for this...crazy stuff!
-She's not crazy, Sadiq.
-Well, then, maybe if she didn't act like it.
-We're going, now.
-What about the rock?
Any light is good light. Bring it along.
Hey, what's wrong?
-Can you see me now?
-'Yeah, who else would wear those shoes?'
Fancy a trip underground?
-It's the SAS!
-How is it still on?
Combi mega gas boiler.
It's so heavily insulated the heat keeps circulating.
One of those can save thousands off your heating bills.
-My dad's got a plumbing business.
-So how do we make it stop?
We can't. It's powered by gas but controlled by electricity.
The controls failed because of the power cut,
now it's running away with itself.
So basically, it's still heating up?
-We have to climb out.
-We need to stop this thing blowing up.
-We need Sadiq!
We've got to solve this ourselves.
What you got there, then?
What am I saying?
Doesn't matter what you've got. We're going to take it anyway.
New gang, Callum? Did the other lot realise what an idiot you are?
Survival of the fittest.
Only the best in my gang.
I miss her.
-You will be devoured, your bones crushed!
-Oi! Get back here.
Your brains squished!
You cannot escape the Jeffmeister!
-Miner's lamp plus luminite equals job done.
That's brilliant, Jeffrey.
What can I say? I'm the heroic type.
Nice one, bro.
The ice cream should cool the boiler down.
OK, that's enough for now.
Good, cos that was the last chocolate log.
-Have we fixed it yet?
-No, but we've bought some time.
But not much. Cos once the ice cream's melted,
then the temperature will rise and it'll blow up. Right, Ami?
-OK, it's time to go.
You first, Liam.
OK, Frankie, you're next.
Do you remember when you were three
-and you climbed on top of the wardrobe?
-You remember that?
Sadiq thought it was so funny, he ran to get me.
He was right. Your mum coaxing you down with a jam doughnut?
I've never laughed so much in my life.
You're a scrambler, Frankie, so scramble.
-OK. Ami, you're next. Easy for you.
-Someone's got to get power
and someone's got to let you know if it's working.
-I know about this stuff and I can scramble out in a second.
I signed up for an adventure, didn't I?
Here, I'll have this walkie-talkie.
Use Frankie's. I'll give you a regular update on the boiler.
I can pretty much work out to the minute how long you'll have.
And I can buy you every last second you need.
It's stable. But the ice cream's melting quickly.
-Tell Kat to get the turbines turning.
-Come on, give me a hand.
Kat, Tia saved us!
-Tia is a genius!
OK, so you play with the little kids.
Maybe you have got something to contribute.
So have you, Kat, cos if you haven't found a way to power up this hotel,
soon there won't be a hotel.
AMI: I can see you having a mother's meeting! Get a move on.
There's a boiler down there about to blow.
We've got to get the power back on!
OK, let's find the others.
So, basically, we won.
What happened to you?
Four solar panels? That's not going to help.
-We've got an emergency...
-Better than that, we've got luminite!
-It's not contagious!
-I don't care!
-It magnifies light, sound...
-And Reese, apparently.
-Listen to us!
Thank you. This is an emergency.
The hotel boiler's about to explode unless we make enough power
to make it cool down!
-Sadiq, we need to work together.
-Let's go. Round the back.
-Snow Goose here. What's happening?
Got you, Snow Goose. The boiler's heating up, I'm out of Paddle Pops.
And remember, when I say blow, she's going to go.
Tia, bring me that cable.
Arctic Fox to Snow Goose.
Ten minutes or the goose is cooked!
Eight minutes left!
-There's no sun.
-No wind either.
Two minutes and counting!
Wait! I know where it is.
There! Plug the cables in!
-Is that it?
-That's not enough.
WALKIE-TALKIE: 90 seconds, hurry up!
One minute, Ami. We're working on it.
We've got power but the wattage is too low.
We haven't generated enough electricity.
-We better get out of here!
-There's seconds left. Time's running out.
Blow! Blow! Blow!
I've fallen. I can't move.
-Hold on. We can't leave him!
-But we're all going to get blown up!
Get him out of there.
Boost it, boost it!
The luminite, of course. That's it!
WALKIE-TALKIE: Ten seconds...
-We did it, we did it!
-Yeah, well done, guys!
We did it. We're saved.
I can't believe it.
ELECTRONIC MUSIC PLAYS
Jeff, I can see now that you'd be as good on the quest as anyone.
Yeah, but I'm not going. You are.
-Everyone else is taking responsibility for the first time
-but you've always had to be a grown-up.
-I've never minded that.
Maybe you should have. So go, save the world. Have fun.
Be a kid again. About time, isn't it?
Quiet! Thank you.
I have something to say.
We have a development.
Why do I feel nervous?
Reese and I think that we have worked out
where the Sparticle Project is.
It's in the luminite mine.
You think The Sparticle Project is in Granddad's mine? Black Tor?
Well, most Sparticle accelerators are underground,
so a mine would be ideal.
Dora said she knew that the Sparticle Project energy
would be boosted massively but no-one listened.
The scientists turned on the machine and...
-it went a bit wrong.
-The luminite in the walls
around the machine boosted its energy,
just like our lump magnified the megaphone
and the light in the tunnel.
I get it! That's why the Victorians called it the Magic Mine.
Because luminite magnifies energy, light, heat, sound, the lot.
Wow. Imagine a whole mine of the stuff.
I'd buy the Sparticle Project being in the Magic Mine. Sounds wicked!
Let's start packing for the quest!
I'm confused. Who won the challenge?
-It was a group effort.
We magnified each other.
A vote, my fellow Sparticles!
All in favour of Kat and Sadiq as joint leaders of the team to go to
the Sparticle Project, the Questers, and Tia and me to stay here
back at the Ranch, head of the Ranchers!
Kat, you said you'd take care of me!
I know but Tia will take much better care of you
and Frankie than me.
We're going to bring your mum back. We're going to bring all your mums
and dads back. I promise.
So, how are we going to get to the Sparticle Project?
# Hey, hey Wooh, yeah
# Wooo, yeah... #
Well, not on that, obviously.
Us - Bristol. Destination - Yorkshire Moors.
-Who turned the water off?
-My toilet won't flush.
-I've got all the secrets.
When I get back, you're worshipping me.
-Reese, help us!
-We're going to die!

Doomsday Dora's message has warned the children they must reunite the two parallel worlds quickly or adults and children will remain separated permanently. The ticking clock has started. The children decide to choose who goes on the road to the Sparticle Project and who stays behind to look after Liam and Frankie by an Apprentice-style challenge to source power for the City Hotel.
Meanwhile, Frankie and Liam have an adventure all of their own and get trapped in the hotel boiler room. Tia is called upon to rescue them and proves she has more to give to the tribe than painted toenails.
