Notes Edit

  • Originally announced as a print publication that was cancelled by Penguin on 18 September 2010, after which an e-book release was confirmed.
  • This is the second Sarah Jane Adventures novelisation to be released in e-book format only. It is also the last SJA novelisation to be published to date in any format.
  • This is the second Sarah Jane Adventures novelisation to feature the Doctor on the cover, after the Tenth Doctor on The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith.

Deviations from the televised story Edit

  • In the TV series only Haresh Chandra watched the arriving of the UNIT staff at Sarah Janes house. In the novelisation Mrs Kuthrapali, Mr Lawrence, the Fraser family and Gita Chandra were watching it as well.
  • In the TV series Haresh Chandra and Rani Chandra talked about Rani's grandfather and remembered that Gita Chandra washed the furniture, the walls etc. after his death. In the novelisation Haresh told Rani about the death of her grandfather Ram Vermas and explained that her grandmother cleaned the furniture, the walls etc. after his death.
  • At the end of the story, Sarah Jane reveals what she found out about some of the Doctor's previous companions. However, a few more were mentioned than in the TV episode. She mentions a Doctor Holloway in San Francisco who is looking into new breakthroughs in surgery. When she mentions Dorothy and A Charitable Earth, she mentions that Dorothy was working alongside a Melanie Bush, providing PCs to schools in Africa.
