Nina: The nurse sent me, sir. I was in English and I got a headache.
Mr. Finch: Then don't bother me, go home.

Early contender for best of series
3 May 2006 | by movieman_kevSee 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+
