Loved it! Great to see Sarah and K9 back, Anthony Head was fantastic, only met in talent by David during the pool face off scene. Billie gave her best performance to date, contemplating how her adventures with the Doctor will end. My only real gripe was Mickey, he didnt really seem to do much, didnt seem worth having him around.

The ending, thankfully was not coming out from nowhere, and was thought out properly.

The emotion was all there, The Doctor interacting with both Sarah and K9, and showing us his lonenlyness once again, he might have a new face but he is still feeling guilty over what he did in the war. I think my favourite part had to be the Doctor smashing the screen, he sacrificed the opportunity to get his people back, that is what the Doctor is all about. Special well done to TPTB for not having him turn the opportunity down straight away, he took time to make that choice, it humanises him.

Favourite Quote: "You can spend the rest of your life with me, but I cant spend the rest of my life with you"

Rating: 10/10 (screw it, Mickey's lack of doing much is made up for in the car scene:D)

Ooh, that was great! The scenes between SJS and the Doctor were really emotional, and Anthony Head's performance was brilliant!

I loved the effects in this episode, and for once, even the music!

And I feel I have to say: I've canoed in that swimming pool! I squeed like a deranged fangirl once I recognized where they were. :p

I thought it was brilliant. The pathos as the Doctor and Sarah Jane discussed the fact he had left her. The acting was of a very high standard. And Anthony Head was exceeding creepy.

What can I say, I loved Sarah-Jane in this, it's nice to see what happens to those who get left behind, all that bitterness and sorrow, well done Liz Sladen she did this extremely well. Ok so I was wrong about Anthony Head being the new Master but he was excellent in this, really creepy and the scene around the pool was brilliant, both DT and AH do menacing really well. I have to admit I loved K9 in the Tom Baker era, I must have been one of the few who did and I couldn't wait for him to come back, and I wasn't disappointed and I'm so glad Sarah-Jane got to keep him. The final scene was so well done by both David Tennant and Liz Sladen I had tears in my eyes at the end *Sniff* and the 'B!tch Slapping' between Sarah-Jane and Rose was well done too and I can honestly see it happening too. I think this comes a close second to Tooth and Claw as my favourite episode of the season so far.

OMG This episode was so amazingly fantastically brilliant in every way !!!!
For a start it had a brilliant classic villian played by one of my fave actors Anthony Stewart Head who's performance was outstanding !!!
Then we had Sarah Jane Smith who is back and as gorgeous as ever
K-9 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Best Dog in the Universe !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 It was so brillaint to see him back and still voiced by John Leeson made the episode even more extra special !!!!!!!!!!!!
Mickey was great a brill performance and I loved the fact he screamed like a girl. ALso that car scene was so great to
Mickey: We need to get in do you have a lockpick or sometihng?
K-9: We are in a car
Mickey: You dont understnad we need to get int there
K-9 we are in a car
Micke Hang on..... We are in a car !!!!!!
Brilliant.
PLus the Doctor was good too particuarly in The Swimming Pool scene and Sarah's goodbye and so was Rose expecially in the Catfight which was so brilliant too !!!!!!!!!!!
All in all a million out of ten this episode is the best of the season and in my opinion the best episode new who has yet offerd us !!!!!!!!!!

Excellent episode - everything about it worked and for once I wasn't annoyed with Mickey.

K9 "We are in a car" repeat 3 times till Mickey got the idea ~ loved it.

Loved the Doctor's humour in this one - as well.

The scene where Rose and Sarah are discussing who they have encountered was great as well, and Rose looked smashing.

OMG!!! I loved this episode, it's easily my favourite ep of this series. Very emotional, wonderful acting and a cracking creepy storyline (wasn't Anthony Head a fab baddie?)

Fantastic, and might I just say...

The Torchwood reference was perfect! Thats the only way Torchwood should EVER be referenced.

Thes epast two eps have been my favourite of the entire new series (including CE's era), with the only possible exception actually being Parting Of The Ways and Christmas Invasion, and have you noticed how the last two have had an almost X Files sort of feel?

This was by far the best ep so far. The acting was spot on, K9 i have never encountered him before as he was how you say 'Before my time' but i love him now! I want him back!

I love the scenes between Sarah-Jane and Rose, they were so good! Im glad they were okay with each other in the end.

10 out of 10!!!

This is simply the best episode so far. AST was a brilliant villian. I loved Sarah-Janes 'Oh f(*&!' facial expression when she saw the Tardis for the first time in years. I was annoyed when K9 sacrificed himself in the kitchen. Atleast now theres 'K9 Mark 4' though. 10/10

PS: If I was given the chance to bring back the Timelords though, I would've taken it.

Yep another good episode... My only complaint was the enemy of the week felt a little too much like the "Join us and we'll rule like gods muahahaha" type baddies. It was great to see Sarah-Jane (she looks good for 58) and K-9 again. I was laughing at Mickey's comment about the missus and the ex having a cat-fight over 'their' man. :D

The addition of Sarah Jane seemed to me like a plot device to get Mickey to finally join the Doctor and Rose on their adventures. The episode also served to give resolution to Sarah Jane's character after 'her' doctor left her behind.

As for Torchwood references. There were no Torchwood references. Except for the flashing access denied on the computer screen. ;)

Aw, and that final scene, it would've brought a tear to a glass eye. *sniff* But not me. I'm no big softie! ;)

Can't wait for next week's episode with that 51st century spaceship. Hmm, interesting...

Just to add something, because of 'Tooth And Claw' last week I was expecting a Torchwood reference (besides Mickeys 'Access Denied' screen) like 'Torchwood Secondary School' or something. Glad it didnt happen, they had already layed on Torchwood thick enough as it is earlier in the series. Also, heres an interesting thing, K9 Mark 4 was behind the Tardis in the ending scenes. I did a Google search after the episode and found this, http://www.paratime.ca/v_and_v/pics/k9_mk5.jpg

That was an official design by the BBC for K9 And Company years ago, im glad they didnt try to use it in 'School Reunion'.

OK...

1. Only know of SJS from reading up on Who history but she was pretty solid, good when the Doctor came in and she and Rose were laughing their heads off!

2. K9: We're in a car

3. Certainly interesting bad guys, would be even more interesting to know the Doctor's exact motivation for turning the Cystalines down.

4. Mickey's going to be joining the TARDIS crew? Cool

Overall, I'd say Tooth and Claw has the edge on this but this is still cool.

April 29th, 2006, 04:35 PM
I think I've seen a couple of SJS stories on UKGold. The Loch Ness Monster comment certainly jogged a memory. That was a really nice segue from girlfight to girly pals, that line :).

She's NEVER 58. Or she has a picture in the attic.

ROFL at "we are in a car". I liked K9 when I was little, nice to know he still works... after a fashion :).

And it was so heart-wrenching, all the stuff about being left behind. "Pain and loss define us as much as joy," and "Some things are worth getting your heart broken for." Bittersweet in the best way.

LOVELOVELOVE this ep! Oh wow. So much goodness! The Doctor's awe and happiness at Sarah Jane, SJ's full gamut of emotions at the Doctor, the SJ interaction with Rose... this was an emotions-rich ep with a little something for everyone. And K-9!!! I have never seen you before, but I love you!! :D

And Mickey's line, "Oh my god... I'm the tin dog!" ROTFL!

ASH was fantastic! Everyone was fantastic! Loved Milo. So much more than just the Obnoxiously Smart Kid. And Kenny! He didn't die! ;) I'd never seen Sarah Jane before tonight (I'll catch up on history some day) but her scenes were so powerful, and the ending... *sniff*

Wow. What a great ep. I wonder how long Mickey will last as a companion. Has anyone started a pool yet? ;)

Easter Lily
April 29th, 2006, 06:41 PM
*sniff*
*reaches out for more tissues*

Sarah Jane Smith... K9... What else is there to say? *sniff*

I LOVED Sarah Jane... she was always one of my favourite companions along with The Brig... Ian and Barbara... So that last ten minutes was gold... pure gold...

The alien of the week story was pretty much by the numbers but it was the Sarah Jane/K9 reunion that made it extra special. Still, all that time of watching Dr Who, I never once thought there was romance in the air. Watching her with Pertwee then with Baker... I could see some kind of bond between them but my romance radar never went off. It does make sense that there would be some feeling there, something that the show never delved into previously.
I'm glad that this occasion gave them both some kind of closure.

I've got to say that David Tennant was quite superb in this episode... he was so comfortable with Lis Sladen... He made their relationship believable, as if they both really had a history.

Finally, yay for Mickey... finally finding the adventurer inside... not wanting to play second fiddle. Good for you. I knew you had it in you.

I'm in love. *sigh* Absolutely adored every single second of School Reunion. I haven't got the emotional attachment to Sarah Jane and K-9 as I'm sure all the classic Whovians have, as so far I've only seen a few episodes with them, but even so, I thought this was television entertainment at its best.

The Doctor's reaction to seeing Sarah Jane is utterly priceless, and when she realizes it's him... wow, splendid acting and great scripting. Couldn't have been better.

I want a K9 of my own, heh. Or I could try teaching my own canine to talk like that... So cute! "We're in a car." Hehehehe!

Mickey officially a companion, hurrah! But Rose looked rather unhappy; she definitely wanted Sarah Jane to come along instead. :(

Perfect, just perfect. I've enjoyed all three episodes of this series so far *so much*, if the rest of the series is half as enjoyable, this'll be a heck of a ride!

Oh my God, they didn't kill Kenny!

That ep was just so brilliant. I loved the whole thing, top to bottom. Excellent. Fantastic. I cried like a little girl. I'm thinking 9 or 10, with little pigtails and a frilly dress. ;)

I'm hoping Finch turns up again. He alone of those Krillitane could have survived. He was a true human form, unlike the others who were batform disguised as humans. The oil didn't effect him like it did the others, so he could have legged it before the explosion.

Good Dog, K9.

Horray for Kenny!

Goodbye... MY SARAH JANE!

Tecnically its Not K-9 Mark 4 its just K-9 Mark 3 updated as K-9 said 'Master found me and fixed me' or something along those liunes.

But didn't we then have:

"He replaced you with a newer model?"
"Affirmative."

Or something like. A brilliant retouching on the Doctor's way of staving off grief.

I just finished watching it for the second time, really good episode.

I have always loved Sarah Jane Smith she was so good and Elisabeth Sladen did a fabulous job of bringing her back to life. It was great to see her return in such a good way and a good script and I liked seeing K-9 too but he could have remained quite dead for all I care. Really not sure about the romance tangent :S I will say that both Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker had great chemistry with Elisabeth IMO but still not sure about there ever being anything more than that, but I sort of understand what they are getting at even if I don't like it. :cool:

ASH was fabulous, and I said it when he was first mooted to be in the show that he should play the baddie because he is so good at that and yes he was great, although at one stage I did think Buffy is going to walk along one of those corridors in a mintue.

David is just special, too good as The Doctor, how did we get so lucky to have not one but two actors reprise the role so well but so differently and make it work? Love him, love the bloody glasses to bits! :D

Rose/Billie was good, don't like clingy jealous Rose, but otherwise good also a bit of a buzz to see her as a kitchen lady (not sure what you call them in the UK) it reminded me of Ace, just a little bit. ;)

Mickey? Still not sure about him becoming a traveling companion but we will see. I will wait before deciding if that is a good or bad idea.

Overall really liked this.

Aw, Sarah Jane Smith. ;)

I could have done without the implication that the Companions are always about romance and the "Physics, physics, physics" thing at the beginning dragged on too long, but otherwise, I loved just about everything in the ep. ;)

Makes me more curious about the cartoon, too, which is probably what it was supposed to do.

I have a question, though: didn't the Doctor see K-9 in a display case in Dalek? Or I thought I remembered that from the UK version, anyway. It puts the reunion with Sarah Jane into a slightly different perspective for me since I can only think of ominous reasons for him to have wound up there.

Or am I remembering that wrong after all?

The only thing I recall him actually stopping and looking at was the Cyberman helmet.

Aw... just finished watching for a third time, and this time around I just started crying when the Doctor lifted Sarah Jane and says, "My Sarah Jane!" I hardly even know Sarah Jane, but this episode just keep on getting better, and the emotions and drama just flow from the screen.
Amazing stuff. This is what television should be about.

I loved the "Ooh the missus and the ex, welcome to every man's nightmare" line from Mickey, inspired bit of writing.

Mr Prophet
April 30th, 2006, 08:49 AM
The only thing I recall him actually stopping and looking at was the Cyberman helmet.

I think technically that was a head, rather than a helmet.

Although clearly they were playing up the parallels to a romantic relationship - and touching on the impact that travelling with the Doctor might have on your later love life - I didn't think that there was any implication of actual romance - resolved or otherwise - between the Doctor and Sarah Jane. The issue at stake with Sarah Jane was that she was abandoned. In Aberdeen. It obviously hit her in much the same way as losing a lover might, but it was the abandonment and uncertainty that was important, not the precise nature of what was lost.

Of course, I may simply be in denial, but the fact that Rose was apparently jealous of Mickey coming on board takes out some of the romantic angle. The Doctor may have flirted with Captain Jack as freely as with Rose, but even if he has a type, Mickey just isn't it.

As for K-9's reappearance at the end, that felt like a way of showing that the Doctor is still avoiding the issue of his companions' mortality. He may have been brought to confront the fact in this story, but that doesn't mean it's all squared away; he retains his slight edge of denial about it and replacing companions with a 'newer model' is still his way of dealing with it.

What happens to people around the Doctor seems to be the watchword for the new series. From the earthly powers not being entirely glad to see him, to his excitement when he can save everyone, the fate of those in the Doctor's wake is very much an issue.

I like Mickey and his reaction to things. Rose has got a little bit too used to all the wonders they encounter. With Mickey they can maybe use him to go all big-eyed with wonder again.

I'm also beginning to respect Mickey a hell of a lot. He may act like a nump, but the skills are there, he plays a sort of "Lone gunman" role from the X Files. He has obviously amazing hacking and tech skills, and even if hes a bit slow, the initiative is there, even in taking the photo of the slitheen.

Basically. In his own way, Mickey has embraced the fact that there are ET threats out there and is dedicated to fighting them, hes even going LOOKING for them as opposed to just letting them come to him.

Yeah, although I think the reason he started doing that was so he could compete with the Doctor on some level- He fears he's losing Rose to this guy who's just so much more impressive than him, so he's trying to show Rose that he can do some of the same things too.

Mr Prophet

Maybe, but I still think she's jealous of him for the same reason she was jealous of Sarah Jane. Rose met the Doctor when he was solo and, despite a few short-term companions, she's been the only one there and - so far as she really knew - the only one there ever was.

This would have been bolstered by the Doctor telling people that he only takes the best - remember that she doesn't know that Mickey had been offered the chance to ride in the Tardis once before - which would have been a hell of an ego trip for a girl from a rough estate. To find out that 'the best' wasn't quite the exclusive tag she thought it was, and - thinking about it - that there could be fellow companions that she didn't invite along (both idiot boy and Captain Jack were more-or-less her call) must have been a kick in the teeth.

"Exactamundo ... (looks puzzled) a word I've never used before, and hopefully never will again"

Classic. I love how these bits still keep popping up, another reference to the fact that the Doctor is still getting used to his new persona. It makes much more sense to me that it takes a while for a newly regenerated Timelord to adjust to his new body and personality.

"OH MY GOD! I'M THE TIN DOG!!"


I just about swallowed my tounge laughing so hard on that one.

And K9!! What a joy to see him.

The thing that stuck in my mind was The Doctor's speach about how he will live 'forever', but his female companions won't. The tear in his eye implies that he has gone through this before in the past. Probably before any TV adventures started. This explains the relationships he has had in the past with female companions and why he never got too close to them. Not just for their sake, but for his as well...

Although, as I recall he and Romana never realler did play Marvin Gay around the TARDIS late at night..... ;) ;) ;) ;)

Another reason Rose might be unhappy and Mickey joining the TARDIS crew.

Basically it's two parts of her life combining that she probably doesn't think are compatable. Same reason I've avoided mixing online and offline friends.

It wasnt so much as his sacrifice (it was so obvious there would be a Mark IV) but the Doctor's reaction to what his beloved pooch was about to do that got me, yes I admit it, i got a little choked up! The look in his eyes as he said "good dog" :( inspired writing!

I've spent half the day screencapping this ep and I've been wetting myself at some of theses lines. One line I missed on the first viewing was - Rose (to DW &SJS): "No offence, but can you's two stop petting for a minute"...LMAO at that one.When I heard that line I had to rewind and play it again to make sure I heard it right! Lol! Of course it was about K-9. :p I still wish K-9 would rust! Hey I put up with that dog for years.

I'm also beginning to respect Mickey a hell of a lot. He may act like a nump, but the skills are there, he plays a sort of "Lone gunman" role from the X Files. He has obviously amazing hacking and tech skills, and even if hes a bit slow, the initiative is there, even in taking the photo of the slitheen.

Basically. In his own way, Mickey has embraced the fact that there are ET threats out there and is dedicated to fighting them, hes even going LOOKING for them as opposed to just letting them come to him.
Yeah I'm liking Mickey a lot more as time progresses and I didn't have too much trouble understanding his initial apprehension... I also don't think that he really felt comfortable with the ninth doctor which I think played a large part in his decision not to travel with them. While he was a merely a recurring character, one could track his journey and the way he has gradually embraced the whole ET phenomenon. He's a late bloomer and probably not that different from the great majority of people.


Although clearly they were playing up the parallels to a romantic relationship - and touching on the impact that travelling with the Doctor might have on your later love life - I didn't think that there was any implication of actual romance - resolved or otherwise - between the Doctor and Sarah Jane. The issue at stake with Sarah Jane was that she was abandoned. In Aberdeen. It obviously hit her in much the same way as losing a lover might, but it was the abandonment and uncertainty that was important, not the precise nature of what was lost.
There is probably enough ambiguity in their conversation to allow for different interpretations. I realise that the Doctor's feelings weren't explored in any great depth in the classic series although it was usually evident that he experienced some degree of grief every time he lost a travelling companion.
However, it seems to me that there have been quite a number of indicators in the last few episodes that suggest to me that they're trying to push for a romantic agenda for the Doctor and to reinterpret some of the earlier relationships as having some element of romance. Cassandra Rose hinted as much and Rose herself is almost convinced of it.

I suppose some of it has to do with the Tenth Doctor being such a warm and effusive personality. It tends to give more credence to the romance angle and possibly gives Rose reason to believe that there's more than a platonic friendship between them. One often forgets that a 900 plus year old time lord belies that youthful appearance.

K-9's sacrifice combined with the last dialogue tween the Doctor and Sarah-Jane really did bring tears to my eyes.

It was so great seeing them on the screen together again.

Did anybody else get a bit of a shiver when SJS walked into the storage room and found the TARDIS?

Does anybody else think the 'lunch lady' look works for BP? (what look doesn't?)

My fave quote was SJS: You must be getting older. Your assistants are getting younger.

Brilliant!

And the thing that get's me about K-9 III's death is the way he wags his tail at the 'good dog' line, like he totally understands and forgives.

There's a fan theory going way back to K-9 II's first appearance that the K-9s' automatically link to the TARDIS whenenever it touches down and upload their memories - meaning K-9 IV remembers everything the first three experienced. Which is a nice thought.

Great episode - not quite as good as Tooth and Claw, but still very good.

One question: What actually happened with the Doctor and Sarah-Jane? I get that he was called back to Gallifrey and humans can't go there, but why didn't he go back for her afterwards? (Technically that's two questions, but they're basically the same...)

I think it's the same reason he said to Rose- he hates watching people get old and die when he will have to live on, so he abandons them and moves on occasionally.

It had it all that makes the series so great.

I was expecting a Torchwood reference (besides Mickeys 'Access Denied' screen) like 'Torchwood Secondary School' or something. Glad it didnt happen, they had already layed on Torchwood thick enough as it is earlier in the series.

I've been getting a little irritated by every episode having a Torchwood reference and this one irked me as much as the others. Puhlease - we get it. Can we have an episode without a Torchwood reference? Just one?

There was a lot to like in this episode. I still think of the Sarah-Jayne/Tom Baker Dr partnership as the Golden Age of the old show - the only time I can recall ever really being interested in it - so it was lovely to see her back. And, my, hasn't Elisabeth Sladen aged well! She looked gorgeous.

K-9...meh. Can take or leave him, but he had some good moments.

I loved 'OMG! Kenny blew up the school!" and Mickey pulling out the plug had me ROTFLing. Wished he'd have done it in front of the Doctor while he was trying to shut the thing down - that would have been even funnier.

The flying bat beasties were very creepy and the CGI effects on those were beautifully done and very impressive. I loved the way they moved. It all looked very natural.

Tony Head always gives a show it's money's worth and he wasn't a disappointment here. He had some wonderfully sinister touches.

I enjoyed the angst and the character interaction between Rose and Sarah-Jayne and Sarah-Jayne and the Doctor.

In fact the only thing which irked me is something that's bothered me in previous episodes. And that's the way that Rose treats Mickey. She is absolutely appalling to the man. Picking him up when he's of use to her, dismissing him when he isn't and I thought her reaction to him wanting to come along on the ride was very childish and rude. If she doesn't start treating him with some respect I'm going to have to seriously bop her one with a two by four.

Overall, good episode.

Absolutely agree. In fact, over the next couple of eps, it actually seems as though Micky is getting more respect from the Doctor than from Rose.

Funny thing- I don't think I picked up on the fact last time that the black guy was also a black Krillitain.

Wouldn't the amalgamation of the species sorta thing kinda negate distinguishing features like skin tones? Or maybe it's a personal quirk like Giles staying human-like.

Admittedly, I was nervous about this episode after last week's travisty and trailers featuring a little tin dog; however, the episode proved why Doctor Who is a fantastic show.

I loved the character development in this episode:

The Doctor's view and temptation added to the show significantly. It is nice to see how lonely he can become. Despite his wisdom, he still retains some innocence in that he can't understand the loss the former companions feel when he leaves them behind at last. I would love to know more about his past. Did he watch a companion die? Is that why he changes them before they can "decay" as he calls it.

I also enjoyed the interaction between Sarah Jane and Rose. The companion jealously would exist, and it reminds the viewer of another companion who will probably slug the Doctor if he ever sees him again: Jack. Rose's reaction to Mickey at the end was quite interesting. If Mickey comes aboard, then she has to share the Doctor, and while I can stand Doctor/Rose ship most days, I can also see the Doctor as the parent figure whom each companion or child wants the most attention from.

K-9 was wonderful! Cute, playful, and not obnoxious. I was thrilled when the Doctor fixed him, and I did laugh when the villain screams to ignore "the shooty dog thing." I also like the scene with Mickey in the car and that Mickey figured out that if he didn't get on the Tardis the dog was showing more courage than he was. The Doctor invited him early last year after all.

Additionaly, we, at last, have proof that school lunches truly are toxic; it's not just our perception, and the principal might be evil, so don't get sent to his office. :)

School Reunion was an amazing episode. 10/10.

Yes he did. He has loss two or three compaions to death.

Man I could help but think, When the Headmaster tried to convince the Doctor to join him, Boy are you barking up the wrong tree.
One thing I think would be intersting what would happen if the Doctor ran into Tegan or Peri?

I loved those two together. My sister gave me a few VHS tapes of Dr. Who as a suprise and a a couple of them are of TB/ES. I think I've stretched those out from too many viewings. I only wish I could look that well right now and in a few short years as her.

So I guess it's all about the hair. Good Giles with his slightly rumpled hair, Evil Giles with his perfectly slicked back coif. To see him facing off with the Doctor was a Nerdgasm on par with the revelation of Minas Tirith in the LOTR movies...squee!

Housing estates aren't automatically ghetto. Most aren't. I lived in one for a spell and I I'd get laughed off the face of the planet if I claimed to be ghetto to anyone who's ever met me :o.

The nuances of 'trailer park' might perhaps fit some of the nuances of Housing Estate.

(Although yes, ghetto in the UK is rather different to the american ghettos. We'd all wait nicely in a proper queue to get shot by the ghetto druggies, and we'd do it in a suitably random mix of metric and imperial. ;))

I really liked this ep. I am young enough to have seen some of the Tom Baker eps, but all I really remember is a man in a really long scarf and being absolutely terrified. So, for me to feel a connection to Sarah Jane & K-9 is a testament to the talent of the people on screen.

There were dsome great lines in this ep. Award for most intense was the pool scene where the doctor talks about being old & not giving more than the one chance (shiver). Award for the one most likely to make you laugh till milk comes out your nose has to go to Mickey, "I'm their man in Havana, their technical support I... OH MY GOD, I'm the TIN DOG!!!!" :lol: Although,, Rose & Sarah Jane dishing about the Doctor's personality quirks was pretty hilarious, too.

From my experiences living in one of the cities that's bolded.
Here in the US, a ghetto is mostly located in the inner cities (NY, Chicago, LA, ...etc). They are mostly State/Federal ran, where some people who are on some sort of assistance (State/Federal welfare, food stamps). And these are usaually large blocks of apartments, ranging from 2-12 stories high.

It also has a negitive connotation here, as it's more of a state of condition. Run down areas, poor housing, and the such.

Well, I suppose "ghetto" isn't the most accurate word. In America we have "Housing Projects" and/or "Housing Developments" which are pretty much analogous to British "Housing Estates." "Ghetto" is more a cultural thing than a physical thing. Tough urban working-class neighborhood, often with a lot of crime and poverty...that's a ghetto. You may find Projects IN the ghetto, but the Projects are not the ghetto in and of themselves.

...not sure if that made any sense...

*reaches out for more tissues*

Sarah Jane Smith... K9... What else is there to say? *sniff*

I LOVED Sarah Jane... she was always one of my favourite companions along with The Brig... Ian and Barbara... So that last ten minutes was gold... pure gold...

The alien of the week story was pretty much by the numbers but it was the Sarah Jane/K9 reunion that made it extra special. Still, all that time of watching Dr Who, I never once thought there was romance in the air. Watching her with Pertwee then with Baker... I could see some kind of bond between them but my romance radar never went off. It does make sense that there would be some feeling there, something that the show never delved into previously.
I'm glad that this occasion gave them both some kind of closure.

Mine either. That was a bit weird to me. Of all the episodes to forget to turn on until it was over 1/2 way through. :mad: I just don't make a point to watch the new Dr. Who. Sarah was my favorite companion. And I really liked K9 too, so it was great to see them back.

I watched this episode for the first time not too long ago. Though I like Sarah Jane and K-9 a lot, I can understand why Sarah needed to emotionally break away from the Doctor. It ain't just about Sarah Jane having her own show. ;)

It is sad but sometimes holding on to your love or friendship for someone can actually hold you back and prevent you from growing into the person you need to be, want to be, and were meant to be. It's all about the process of moving forward because in the end, you can't hold on to the past.

OMG that quote was incredible, I almost cried.
But it doesnt make sense (or mabye I am too new to the fandom)................. shouldn't the doctor be the one that lives forever and rose dies like any other human. WAIT does it have something to do with the regeneration...?

That was an interesting ep. I hope they explain more of the importance of SJS and K9 because well I am new to the fandom. Likewise to bad wolf, I am slowly seeing the word 'torchwood' in every ep of this series. One thing that bothers me is that Mickey joins the time travelling duo... i find him annoying.. oh well. Other than that good ep. AND AND AND if Tennant was my physics teacher I would faint.. end of story. :D
