On 18 August 1951, Eddie and Barbara Smith, companion Sarah Jane Smith's parents, were killed in a car accident after attending the Foxgrove Village Fête. Luke Smith called this a fixed point in time. The Trickster, in an attempt to gain a physical presence on Earth, opened a time fissure between then and Ealing, 2009, and tempted Sarah Jane into entering it. She initially broke her parents' car with her sonic lipstick to prevent their deaths, but after the Trickster broke free, she fixed it, and her parents — having figured out the truth about Sarah's identity — willingly drove off to their deaths, leaving behind a baby Sarah Jane.
