I was in St Davids when that show aired, I was at a friend’s birthday weekend and I remember, mildly drunk, sitting down with fellow Doctor Who fan Craig Andrews and watching it, silent, for the entire show. And, at the end, when the Doctor and Sarah Jane truly said their final farewells, I’m not ashamed to say that there were tears sliding down my face. Because I had seen my companion again, the one I remembered from the very first time, the one I’d loved like a sister.
