It's once again a combination of classic and new series as we look at another pair of Sarah Jane Smith stories. First up, Allison meets Tom Baker's 4th Doctor in "Pyramids Of Mars," which feels shockingly modern at points. Both she and Alasdair are amazed by just how good Baker is here, which maybe we shouldn't be given how iconic his Doctor is, but hey, we're here now. We break down just how Baker's performance gives such a sense of urgency to the proceedings, and why 96 minutes of 1970s-era Who is surprisingly brisk. Then we take a look at "School Reunion," which has its faults but is still a delightful showcase for the Doctor and all his companions. Yes, Mickey very much included.
