The Krillitanes - aliens with a mix-and-match physiology - are trying to crack the 'God-Maker', a paradigm to give them ultimate power. They are using children as a computer, and only the Doctor and Rose, re-united with Sarah Jane Smith and K9 can prevent them from becoming masters of time and space.

Closure for Sarah Jane
30 April 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I was worried about this episode. Sarah Jane Smith has always been my favorite Dr. Who assistant and didn't want the new producers to trample on my feelings about the character (the way 'Star Trek Voyager' did when they brought back the character of Kes for a one-off episode). I needn't have been concerned though, it was wonderful. That's the thing about this new Dr. Who incarnation, it's so much more emotional than the old version. Perhaps it's not surprising. The new producers grew up with the show like the rest of us. We're all older and we want something with a bit more depth than just the same old face-off between the Doctor and the Daleks, the Cybermen etc. (although we want that too). As a result, Elizabeth Sladen got to act in a way that she never did in the old series (and didn't she look GREAT). I loved that little scene in the café where Sarah Jane talked about how much traveling with the Doctor had meant to her and what it had been like to give it all up. I also loved the final scene where she got to go inside the Tardis again, and the moment when she thanked the Doctor for all her experiences with him. She might have been speaking for all of us.
