The Man Who Wasn't There


Sarah Jane takes Sky and Luke,back from university,to the press conference for the Serf Board,the revolutionary new computer everybody wants but Sky is suspicious of the odd behaviour of its inventor,reclusive Joseph Serf whose DNA according to Mr. Smith is not human. Whilst Sarah Jane interviews Serf in the company of his protective assistant Harrison Sky and Luke explore his office basement where they find small hooded figures working a contraption that controls Serf's every movement. They are not pleased to be interrupted.

Harrison captures Sarah Jane and her children,explaining that the Skullions,who operate the hologram of the non-existent Serf,are slaves whom he has bought from an alien planet. He aims to use the hologram to hypnotise people into buying the Serf Board,thus making him very rich. However Sarah Jane uses Mr. Smith to beam down a spaceship which frees the Skullions and returns them home whilst Sky and Luke take over Serf's controls to foil Harrison's plans.
