Rose's (Billie Piper) boyfriend Mickey (Noel Clarke) has asked time traveller Doctor Who (David Tennant) and his companion Rose back to earth, because there are some very weird goings-on in some highschool and Mickey can't make heads nor tails of it. So the Doctor enters the school as the new physics teacher and Rose as a dinnerlady ... but it isn't long before the Doctor, Rose and Mickey do what you are supposed to do is a situation like this - break into the school at night. And there they stumble over ... Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen), the Doctor's companion from some 30 years back - and Sarah Jane also brings along a present the Doctor once gave her ... K9 (voiced once again by John Leeson), the computer dog.

Soon enough the Doctor finds out that the school is undermined by a race of shapeshifting aliens who prefer to appear as gargoyle-like flying creatures, and the school's principal (Anthony Stewart Head), incidently the leader of the aliens, has some evil ideas of his own: He wants to turn the schoolkids into components of his all powerful godmaking computer - and he even offers the Doctor to join him.

Of course in the end the Doctor refuses, gets all the children out of school and uses some special oil - which reacts like acid witht he aliens' skin - to hold the aliens at bay, then withthe help of K9, he blows up the school - at the cost of the metal dog.

Ultimately, the Doctor bids farewell to Sarah Jane once again (but gives her a new K9), while Mickey asks if he can travel withhim and Rose ...

 

Some good ideas in this one, and Anthony Stewart Head makes a good, hammy villain, but ultimately the mystery of the story is downplayed in favour of special effects on one hand, and totally unnecessary (and overly clichéd) character scenes - like the conflict between Sarah Jane and Rose and their ultimate reconciliation, or Mickey realizing he wants to be more than just Rose's present day earth boyfriend - on the other. This could have been so much better would they have written Mickey and Sarah Jane out of the script ...
