About this Episode

This week, I'm joined by podcaster and lifelong Doctor Who fan Rachel Donner, to discuss the long-delayed farewell between the Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith from 2006's School Reunion. Along the way we talk about Sarah Jane's history with the Doctor, including her first farewell in 1976's The Hand of Fear, and we explore the importance of goodbyes in the show and in our own lives.
