Astrologer Martin Trueman, previously a charlatan, is hit by the light from a shooting star and, at his next show, attended by Sarah Jane, Rani and the boys, gives out cards on which everyone has to write down their birth date and sign. Rani is surprised when Martin gives accurate details about her recent life. Sarah Jane is initially cynical but then Martin tells her of her travels with the Doctor and predicts bad things for her.
