 "What are we going to do?"

"Anything we like!"

The Sparticle Mystery is a British tv series about a world where everyone over the age of 14 suddenly vanishes. Sounds familiar?

Actually, it's not. After the first few episodes where the kids get used to their new situation, they go on a mission to bring the adults back. Many fans started watching the series to prove that it was a rip-off of Gone or The Tribe, and ended up actually liking it.

The series consists of one season so far, and a second season is in the making.

The main characters of the series are:

  • Sadiq, the Nice Guy and either The Hero or The Lancer depending on the circumstances.
  • Kat, a smart, but controlling girl who fights Sadiq for the leader role.
  • Reese, a brave Child Prodigy, who is deterement to solve the mystery from the start.
  • Tia, Sadiq's neighbor and the Team Mom of the group, who cares a lot about her appearance.
  • Jeffrey, a smart and caring guy with cerebral palsy.
  • Jordan, Jeffrey's younger brother, who spends most of his time looking out for his brother.
  • Ami, The Chick of the group who often has some trouble with his diabetes.
  • Holly, a snarky and stubborn girl who strongly dislikes Reese.
  • Franky, Sadiq's little sister, who's an expert at getting into trouble.
  • Liam, a younger neighbor of Kat's, who tags along with her from the start.
  • And Callum, a bully who starts working with the gang in order to get together with Kat.
Tropes used in The Sparticle Mystery include:
  • Action Girl: Kat. Sometimes Holly as well.
  • Adults Are Useless: Well... The only adult in their world is Anita, who pretty much fits this trope. And the adults in the other world are unable to reunite the worlds - the kids have to do it!
    • But they do manage to turn off the nuclear reactors.
  • After the End
  • Berserk Button: Holly, whenever someone says anything positive to or about Reese.
    • Kat may count to, when people annoy her or act like they are better than her.
  • Boarding School of Horrors: The gang stumbles upon one of those.
  • Child-Hater: Anita, something that is unfortunate given the situation she's in...
  • Children Are Innocent: To be this kind of series; yes, they are.
  • Control Freak: Kat
    • And even much more so: Jeremy, the boarding school leader they met on the mission.
  • Dangerous Fifteenth Birthday: Well, Tia believes it is. she is wrong. They 'survive' their fifteenth birthday.
  • Disabled Means Helpless: When it comes to Jeffrey, people seems to think this. Especially his brother Jordan, who has to be told by the others that his older brother can take care of himself!
    • Totally averted with Holly, although the other characters doesn't even seem to notice that she lacks half an arm.
  • Disabled Snarker: Holly, even though she's not really that disabled, if you take the word literally.
  • Heel Face Turn: Callum, although it's basically just because he likes Kat.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Subverted in the first season finale. Reese and her friend, Muna were willing to sacrifice themselves to Save Both Worlds and permanently join them together again, but the Kat, Holly and the other sparticles and one of the adult scientists didn't want them to die and stopped it. The other scientists tried to stop them and make sure the worlds were fused again but failed. May also count as a case of Just Eat Gilligan.
  • Last Day to Live: Tia gets a mild example.
  • Love Redeems: Callum joins "the good side" because of Kat.
  • Parental Abandonment: Well, obviously.
  • Somebody Else's Problem: Many kids who are not a part of The Sparticles seems to think this about solving problems.
    • Flora, Fauna and the other girls Tia and Jeffrey let stay at the hotel had this attitude about everything.
  • Teenage Wasteland
  • The "The" Title: Every episode title.
  • Those Two Guys: Jordan and Ami. Sometimes Two Guys and a Girl with Holly.
  • Would Hurt A Child: The scientists in the season 1 finale apart from one who was related to the one of the Sparticles. Although it's somewhat of a different example, as the scientists weren't directly trying to harm or kill them but rather trying to let them complete their heroic sacrifice and thus save both worlds.
