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.

Did You Know?


Several moments were trimmed or excised in editing. Banter between Kenny, Melissa, Luke and Faisal prior to the Doctor entering the classroom in the teaser - which would have fleshed out the children's characters - was cut. Later in the same scene, the Doctor's questions to Milo would have actually made him collapse, prompting the Doctor to bring him to the school nurse (another Krillitane); this was still alluded to in Wagner's dialogue with Melissa. The Krillitanes eating the hermetically-sealed rats was removed, and instead replaced by a voiceover explanation by the Doctor. Another voiceover was used to truncate the scene in which Kenny deduces that the fire alarm will disorientate the Krillitanes. See more »

[first lines]
Mr. Finch: [walking the halls while making fingerings with his left hand as if playing a three-keyed brass instrument, then sings softly] Bom bom bom bom / Da-bom bom bom.
Mr. Finch: [He walks just past Nina waiting in a chair by his Headmaster office, stops, and turns taking notice of her] What do you want?
Nina: The nurse sent me, sir. I was in English and I got a headache.
Mr. Finch: Then don't bother me, go home.
Nina: I can't.
Mr. Finch: Why, is your mother at work?
Nina: I live in Ambrose Hall. The children's home.

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.
