PLOT

Part 1

Gita Chandra is working late on a special floral commission. The client turns out to be Mrs Wormwood. She paralyses Gita, certain the disappearance of Rani’s mum will lure Sarah Jane Smith to the case. At the same time, Luke has been having nightmares about Mrs Wormwood.

(Rani realises her mum has vanished. Sarah Jane and Luke go to the Chandras’ house and talk to her and Haresh about what happened. (Rani suspects it could be aliens at work, but Sarah Jane says that it is not always aliens. People go missing all the time and come home safe.

Sarah Jane, Luke and Clyde head to Gita’s shop, Bloomin’ Lovely, to investigate while Sarah Jane uses her scanner watch to search for alien traces. Luke and Clyde find a cheque signed by Mrs Wormwood. When Mr Smith scans it, there is a hidden code which offers clues to Mrs Wormwood’s location. Sarah Jane and Rani go to rescue Gita, discussing the Bane and Bubble Shock on the way.

They find Gita in a trance, unresponsive, and meet up with Mrs Wormwood. The former Bane operative explains she took the blame for her species’ failed attempt at invading the Earth and has been exiled from her people and world. The Bane will eat her alive if they catch her.

When the Bane attack, Mrs Wormwood uses her phonic disruptor on them. It emits sound which penetrates their ears and stops them in their tracks. The Bane grab Sarah Jane by the leg, but Mrs Wormwood saves her, attacking the Bane with a metal pole. The three head back to Bannerman Road, shocking Luke when he opens the door.

In the attic, Mr Smith does a bio-analysis on Mrs Wormwood, confirming she is Bane. Mr Smith asks if having her in the attic is a good idea. Sarah Jane asks Mr Smith to put a containment field around her if she causes trouble. Mrs Wormwood says that an ancient immortal, Horath, tried to take over the galaxy, but was defeated three thousand years ago. Unable to destroy him, Horath’s captors separated his body and consciousness and placed them at opposite ends of the galaxy. Mrs Wormwood says the Bane have found Horath’s consciousness, and are trying to find his body, which is, like so many other things of galactic importance, on Earth. Once united, the Bane will be able to conquer the galaxy. The only clue to the body’s location is in the Tunguska Scroll, kept in UNIT’s Black Archive, a secure storehouse of alien artefacts.

Sarah Jane visits her old friend, retired Brigadier Sir Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, to get his help to enter the Archive. Sarah Jane and Rani obtain the Tunguska Scroll. UNIT personnel stop Sarah Jane, but she uses her sonic lipstick and escapes with Rani and the Brigadier. Meanwhile Luke talks to Mrs Wormwood. When the Bane attack the house, he releases her from the force field so that the Bane cannot catch her. She is about to escape when a Bane tries to eat her. She tries to use her phonic disruptor but being in the containment field has drained its power. At that moment, Sontaran Commander Kaagh shoots the Bane and reveals himself as her agent. She asks after the Consciousness of Horath and he replies that he has hidden it. She relishes the thought of her and Kaagh getting their long-awaited revenge on Sarah Jane and her friends.

Part 2

Luke and Clyde are surrounded by Bane. Clyde picks up a hose and soaks the Bane, trying to force them back. Mrs Wormwood arrives and uses her phonic disruptor (which has been recharged by Kaagh) to blow up the Bane, leaving goo on Luke and Clyde. Sarah Jane arrives with Rani and the Brigadier. To prevent UNIT finding them, Sarah Jane, Luke, Clyde, (Rani, the Brigadier and Mrs Wormwood all hide in Gita’s flower shop. Mrs Wormwood asks Sarah Jane for the scroll but she refuses. Commander Kaagh arrives and grabs Sarah Jane’s sonic lipstick, destroying it. He demands the scroll and threatens the youngsters. Sarah Jane gives the scroll to Mrs Wormwood. Mrs Wormwood forces Luke to go with her and Commander Kaagh.

Mrs Wormwood, Kaagh and Luke arrive at a factory where Kaagh has hidden his space pod. He places the Consciousness of Horath in the scroll. Mrs Wormwood says that Luke could be the ruler of the galaxy as her son. Luke grabs the scroll and runs. Kaagh chases him. Just as Kaagh is about to shoot Luke, Mrs Wormwood, in her Bane form, jumps in front of Kaagh and transforms back to human. She uses her phonic disruptor again.

Meanwhile, the others go to Sarah Jane’s house to speak to Mr Smith, to try to find the whereabouts of Luke, Mrs Wormwood and Kaagh. Major Kilburne tries to stop them, revealing himself as a Bane agent. The Brigadier uses a hidden gun in his cane to stun the Major. They borrow Gita’s van and go after their friends.

Mrs Wormwood, Luke and Kaagh arrive at a stone circle and find a force field around it. Only humans can enter. Mrs Wormwood forces Luke to insert the scroll. When he does, the stone circle opens. It’s a portal which leads to Horath. Mrs Wormwood uses her sonic device again and Kaagh drops to the ground.

Sarah Jane arrives. Mrs Wormwood tries to convince Luke to go with her, saying she is his mother. Luke says his real mum is Sarah Jane. Clyde, meanwhile, walks over to Kaagh to check if he’s hurt. Kaagh asks Clyde to help him regain his honour. Mrs Wormwood is upset but convinces herself that the best way to heal her broken heart is to kill Sarah Jane’s gang. However, as she prepares to do so, Kaagh pushes her into the portal. It explodes, trapping them in another dimension, leaving Luke feeling a bit sorry for Mrs Wormwood. Sarah Jane reveals she has another sonic lipstick and destroys the scroll. She then reflects on how amazing the universe can be, as well as her own corner of it, as she bids goodbye to the Brigadier. She asserts that aliens will always visit Earth as it’s a wonderful place to be.
