The Strange Box: The children have grown up. They buy an old box but a strange man tries to take it off them. Mr Mortlock, the school caretaker, zaps the strange man and they all run through a doorway that appears on the horizon.
Beyond the Door: The children are on the other side of the doorway, in the Time Vault. When Mr Mortlock comes through he transforms into Mortlock, the Time Guardian. He explains their new mission - to fight the Virans, whose aim is to destroy history as we know it.
