Matt cannot feel them any more, he thinks they
have lost them. Adam questions him some more
but when he realises it is over, he stops the
Outside, the villagers are chanting again. In the
dining room, Sandra and Margaret have been changed
- they are happy ones. Hendrick sends them out
to join the circle of villagers.
Back at the cottage, Adam is starting to have doubts.
He wonders what can have happened, he plays the
tape back to Matt. Margaret arrives, and wonders
what has is going on. She says that they hadn't gone
to Hendrick's house after all, that Sandra hadn't
been feeling well. Adam is puzzled, but relieved.
Matt goes to bed, he is not happy with the explanation.
Adam plays the tape back to Margaret, and as she
hears the description of the light she faints. Adam
runs over to revive her, but she tells him that she is
alright - perfectly happy. Adam is horrified.
The next day, Adam annouces that they are leaving.
Mrs. Crabtree cannot believe it. But they are
determined. Matt says that everything is packed
except for the painting, he offers to go across
to the museum to fetch it.
On the way, he sees Sandra talking to Hendrick outside
the church. She is different. He shouts after her,
and gives her back her scarf. Matt says that he isn't
going to school, but doesn't tell her they are leaving.
He tells her goodbye. She says she'll see him soon.
When she is gone he decides to try and get into the
Back at the cottage, Margaret arrives with the painting,
and tells Adam that she didn't want to miss them before
they left. Adam asks her who told her they were leaving
a second before he realises the trick. She didn't know
they were leaving, but now she does. Adam changes the
Matt still tries to get into the church. He find a
hole, and slides through it into the church. Sandra
is watching him from the bushes. Inside there is a
large computer, flashing and whirring. Suddenly
Hendrick appears. He wonders what Matt is doing in
the church. Matt admits he's trespassing, and that
he thought it was just a church. Hendrick shows him
the computer, and then leads him back to his father.
Back at the cottage, Hendrick brings Matt in to Adam.
Hendrick knows they are going too. Hendrick is
disappointed that they wish to leave. Adam is
determined. Matt asks Hendrick what exactly he is,
a priest? Hendrick doesn't deny it. Hendrick says
that he is leading the people. Adam throws the key
on the table, and they are off.
They get into the car and drive away from the cottage.
As they approach the edge of the circle, the stones
seem to loom near the edge of the road. Matt remarks
that it is the same way Dr Lyle came. Suddenly there
is something in the road....
Matt wakes up in a dark room, a digital clock ticking
on the mantlepiece. He puts the light on and wakes his
father on the bed next to him. Adam remarks that they
hit a sarsen on the road. Matt says it way grey, like
a stone, but it was human, it was enormous - it was her.
Mrs. Crabtree, could it be?
Hendrick enters the room. Hendrick says that Link
the butler discovered them both unconscious in their
car at the end of the avenue. Adam tells Hendrick
that they have simply lost their way, not geographically,
they missed the turning, the time turning. Hendrick
pretends to be confused. Adam tell him that they hit
something at the end of the avenue. Hendrick tells
them to look out of the window - the car is there,
wholly undamaged. Adam accuses Hendrick of being a
magus, a scholar magician leading his people to beauty
and truth. Hendrick says he is wrong. Dinner will
be served in about 55 minutes. He leaves.
Matt says Dai said there was no way out of the circle.
Adam thinks that is mumbo-jumbo, they are simply in a
parallel time track, they must simply try to get back
to their own time. There must be a way. Matt says
there is no way out, and Adam tells him if there's a
way in there's got to be a way out. Matt suggests
the Sanctuary, and that there's nothing to stop them
getting there. Looking out the window, Adam says that
there is - the villagers have begun to ring the house.
