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.

Trivia

The Doctor tells Sarah Jane he has had "half a dozen" regenerations since they last met. While he has had 6 regenerations since Sarah Jane was a regular character as the companion of the 4th Doctor (Tom Baker) Sarah Jane appeared in the special 'The Five Doctors' where she met The Doctor in his 5th incarnation (Peter Davison). So The Doctor has only had 5 regenerations since they last met. Although with the release of the "Day of the Doctor" 50th anniversary special, the War Doctor ('John Hurt (I)') could be considered the 6th regeneration he was referring to. See more »

Goofs

When Mickey pulls the plugs on the computers, the children are all wearing headphones, and when he turns around and tells them to run, all of a sudden their headphones are all off. See more »

Early contender for best of series
3 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The good Doctor and Rose go undercover at a modern-day private school, (Who as a teacher, Rose as a cafeteria server) at the behest of Rose's boyfriend, Mickey, who tips them off that something is not quite right there. To divulge any more of the plot would be robbing you of some of the brilliance of this episode, which as I wrote in my comment for last weeks episode, features the return of old companions Sarah Jane and K-9. That reason alone made me anticipate this particular episode for a good while before it actually aired. And it does NOT disappoint in the least and although I liked the previous two episodes of this series quite a bit indeed, this one just one-uped both of them by far. At turns, thrilling, humorous, and yes even touching, this is Doctor Who at it's best. On a side-note it's rumored that K-9 might get his own series sometime in the future, but I can't vouch for if it will be good or rubbish.

My Grade: A+
