EPISODE SYNOPSIS: Penny finds an ornate mirror abandoned in a remote area by some former space traveler. Smith also is interested in it because of the value of its solid platinum frame. During a storm the mirror is struck by a cosmic bolt and changes mysteriously. It has become the entrance to another dimension. Falling thru the mirror, Penny finds herself entrapped behind it and cannot get out. She meets a Peter Pan-like alien boy who tries to persuade her to stay there where she will be free from adult authority and need never grow up. Then Smith turns up. He has also fallen in while tampering with the mirror’s frame. Convinced that this is only a dream, Smith ignores the danger of a huge hairy monster that is trying to get them. Penny is determined to get herself and Smith back safely into their own world.
