The Sarah Jane Adventures Episodes 18 & 19:
The Mark Of The Berserker


A classmate of Luke, Clyde and Rani's discovers an alien pendant which allows the wearer to control the minds of others. But the power comes at a terrible cost, and Rani is able to retrieve the artefact and bring it to Sarah Jane's for safekeeping. Sarah, however, is out of town... while Clyde's long-absent father, Paul, is back in town, trying to reconnect with his son. When Clyde accidentally gives his dad the opportunity to steal the pendant, Paul quickly finds the lure of its power irresistible.
