Dark Star is episode 5 of Series 3.


As half-term approaches, Colt Winchester - an old enemy of Frank's - breaks out of jail. With his gang of misfits, he comes to steal Frank's prize winning invention; the Dark Star, a device capable of instantly bringing total darkness to a large area. Although Frank designed it with good intentions, Colt wants to use it to hold the Government to ransom! As the school closes, Frank and the team are awaiting their arrival and have booby-trapped the school.
