Children have been disappearing and Rani suspects the appearance of a clown at the school is significant. In fact the last two to go missing had tickets to the Museum of the Circus, which Sarah Jane, Rani and the boys investigate. It is run by Elijah Spellman, a smilingly sinister figure, who sets clown robots on the group, though Sarah Jane uses her sonic lipstick to immobilise them.

Odd Bob captures Luke, forcing Sarah Jane to overcome her phobia as she sets out to rescue him but ultimately Clyde tricks Odd Bob and puts him into an impenetrable box. Another Great episode.

Games:

[Fieldrunners – iPAD] – The best iPAD game I have ever played

[Dungeon Chronicles HD – iPAD] – A pretty good tower defence/RPG hybrid with an annoying Sean Connery impersonator.  Not as addictive as Fieldrunners.
