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.
The Doctor, Rose and Mickey goes to investigate Deffry Vale High School, where the students have become super-intelligent and teachers aren't what they seem and lunch times are really peculiar. When the Doctor learns the teachers and the headmaster Lucas Finch are sinister aliens, reuniting with investigative journalist Sarah Jane Smith and mobile computer K-9 mark 3, The Doctor set out to uncover Finch and the teacher's evil intentions and foil their evil scheme.

Past incarnations of the DrWho story have featured returns of previous Doctors and also of previous companions, the best of these to date being the five doctors.
School Reunion, however is the first of these that really looks at the situation from the companions view point and what emerges is a story that tingled with emotion and the actual plot line of aliens taking over a school pales into the background as we watch Sarah-Jane and Rose's mixed emotions in what is essentially the traditional Girl meets Aien, loses Alien, meets Alien again but he's met someone else, loses Alien again ! A story I am sure we can all relate to in our daily lives.
Highlight has to be Elizabeth Sladen's magnificent return, A shame we don't see much of her these days as this episode clearly shows she really is a fantastic actress and I hope that, (if she wants) we see her in something new very soon.
A must see Episode !!
