    Dr Dire is out, and Spike and Mia have decided to take the initiative and squeezed through Igor's shiny new cat flap (just!) to prevent Dr Dire's next misadventure back in time.

    But has Spike inadvertently provided Dr Dire's next time trek trophy idea? Can Spike and Mia stop the theft of the next artefact from the Globe Theatre? Who will they meet during their quest?

    It’s Spikes birthday and Mia has accidently sent his present to his Uncle’s house. For most families this would be fine, but Spikes Uncle is Dr Darius Dire, a shifty scientist who travels back in time to try and steal artefacts for his collection.

    But where in time is he going, and what is he after?
