Recced because: For my final choice I wanted my all-time favourite characters, the Third Doctor and Sarah Jane but made a mistake in the search and this popped out. And having read it I decided I could manage without the Doctor for the sake of the Loch Ness Monster, some excellent character studies, and another glimpse of the Brigadier.
It started out, as these things do, when Sarah Jane asked them if they wanted to see the Loch Ness Monster. She said it very casually–in the very same tone of voice, in fact, that she used to ask Luke to pass her the laser spanner.
“Loch Ness is in Scotland,” said Luke. “I don't think we have time to get there and back and still get up for school tomorrow morning.”
“Never mind that,” said Maria quickly. “I'm sure Dad and Sarah Jane could write notes for us–won't you, Dad?”
Alan made a vague noise of dissent. Maria's eyes narrowed.
“He won't need to,” said Sarah Jane, forestalling a family argument. “We wouldn't be going until this weekend, anyhow.”
