The Sarah Jane Adventures 3.7-8 – The Eternity Trap (parts one and two)

We haven’t watched anything together that was creepy enough to send our son behind the sofa and then upstairs to retrieve his security blanket in such a long time. He’s nine; those days are mostly behind us considering the level – or the “fear factor,” I guess – of the programs that we watch. So Phil Ford’s lovely haunted house story was a charming reminder of how he responds when he gets the heebie-jeebies. It’s a really fun tale about a spooky old house full of ghosts and a menacing old alchemist keeping them all prisoner. There’s a science fiction explanation, of course, but it doesn’t really matter. This was meant to scare the pants off nine year-olds after the sun’s gone down. Of course, as we’re learning about his long-term memory and anything that gives him those heebie-jeebies, this will almost certainly be the first Sarah Jane Adventure to slip his mind entirely. Maybe he’ll enjoy rediscovering it one day.
