The Sarah Jane Adventures Episodes 20 & 21:
The Temptation Of Sarah Jane Smith


In August 1951, Eddie and Barbara Smith inexplicably left their infant daughter, Sarah Jane, by the side of the road and, moments later, perished in a traffic accident. In the present day, Sarah Jane discovers a time fissure leading back to her home town of Foxgrove in the summer of 1951. Despite her fears that she's falling into a trap, Sarah can't resist altering the course of events to save her parents' lives. In so doing, she succumbs to a plot by the Trickster to irrevocably alter the Earth's history.
