Double Trouble was first published as a short story in the 1977 Doctor Who Annual and was made into an audio which was released in 2018 as part of the Second Doctor Who Audio Annual CD anthology. It features the Sarah Jane Smith, the 4th Doctor, Brig, Harry and UNIT and is narrated by Matthew Waterhouse.
The story gets off to an interesting start as Sarah is acting strange, certainly not like herself. She attacks Harry and somehow electrocutes him with her bare hands. Then it takes a humorous turn where she pretty much starts to attack and lay out multiple UNIT soldiers. When learning of this the Doctor says "My bet is on Sarah!" She then turns into two Sarahs, becoming 'double' the threat.
The unfortunate thing about this story is that Matthew Waterhouse was not the correct narrator for BBC to pick as he is unable to do a convincing voice of a woman, nor of Tom Baker's Doctor. This is a common problem with Big Finish where they have men attempt to voice women and it just doesn't work well. Certainly not Matthew Waterhouse's fault but that of BBC for half-assing this one.
