Sam’s latest project

Rani Takes on the World:
Beyond Bannerman Road

A follow-on from The Sarah Jane Adventures, this audio drama features all-new music by Sam, with a modern sound and just a hint of nostalgia.

Life on Bannerman Road was always an adventure for Rani Chandra and her friends. A childhood of mystery and wonder, of meeting aliens, time travelers, lost princes, intergalactic robots, and so much more. Now, Sarah Jane Smith is gone and Rani and her friends have grown up – but the story doesn’t stop there. When Rani and Clyde are reunited, adventure finds them once again, ready and waiting to take on the world!
