Thomas is in his Grandad's shop, bored out of his brain. He then spots
an old TV set, and tries turning it on. There is an announcement by
the TV presenter Holly Anna Jones telling the viewers about the upcoming
programmes. The TV then goes fuzzy again, so Thomas tries adjusting
the aerial. There is a shower of Sparkes and T-Bag appears on the screen.
Thomas tells her to leave him alone, but she kidnaps him. He appears
in the new T-Room in the back of the TV set.
T-Bag tells him that she is ready
to hatch the most fiendish plot ever. She has hooked up the T-Plant
to a bunch of electronic doodabs. She plans to transmit her own TV channel
and hypnotise people with her wicked powers so that they will be her
slaves. She demonstrates her plan on Holly, who stops announcing the
upcoming programmes and starts praising T-Bag and her new channel, "High
TV". The electrics on T-Bag's T-Plant suddenly explode, and the
spell is broken.
T-Bag asks T-Shirt what is going
on and he spouts out all this techno babble, basically saying that she
has overloaded the system.
Meanwhile, the first programme
has started on the TV. It is "Sparkes in Space" starring Professor
Sparkes. T-Shirt sits down to watch it, and T-Bag decides that she should
go and have a word with Professor Sparkes to ask what happened to her
T-Shirt explains to the Professor
what has happened and he spouts out exactly what T-Shirt had said. He
explains that T-Bag will need a booster device to boost the signal and
take the weight off the system. She demands that he builds a booster,
but he refuses. Just before she hypnotises him, T-Shirt says that since
they think alike, he may be able to persuade the Professor to build
the machine without magic. T-Bag leaves him to it, but once she has
gone, he pleads with the Professor not to build it. The Professor explains
that even if she does manage to lay her hands on a booster, he has a
jamming device that will put a stop to her and destroy her. He shows
T-Shirt. The jammer is a box of electronics with an array of crystals
to power it. He demonstrates the device. Everything goes dark and lights
start flashing around. In the T-Room, T-Bag starts to fade. She goes
to the Professors lab. T-Shirt sees her and starts telling the Professor
off for trying to destroy T-Bag.
The Professor switches the machine
off, and T-Bag demands to know what is going on. The professor torments
her by switching the machine on and off. She then pretends to be fascinated
by the machine and interested in how it works. He shows her the crystals
and hands her one. Without a working booster, the Professor is hypnotised
by T-Bag into makting the booster.
T-Bag returns to the T-Room to
destroy the crystals, but she finds that they are indestructable. T-Shirt
suggests hiding them in one of the upcoming programmes, but T-Bag hides
one in each of the upcoming programmes. T-Shirt keeps one of the crystals
T-Bag then heads off to the bedroom.
T-Shirt regrets suggesting hiding the crystals, and realises that he
needs help to gather them up again. He brings Holly to the T-Room by
magic. Holly refuses to help because she should be at work, but once
T-Shirt shows her a video of her being hypnotised, she agrees. He gives
her the first crystal. She says that she should go and see the Professor
to try and talk him out of making the booster, but T-Shirt says that
it will be a waste of time. She tries anyway, but gets a frosty reception.
T-Shirt is watching on the TV when T-Bag comes in. Holly tells the Professor
that T-Shirt has told her about a "horrible old Bag woman"
who intends to enslave everyone.
When T-Bag hears this, she is
furious with T-Shirt, and puts him under her power.
She then takes T-Shirt to sort
Holly out, but fails to harm her because the crystal protects her. She
rushes out to find the rest.
