Author's Summary: The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith was overrunning badly, so they had to cut a great deal of material from the end. Here's what you missed. It starts just where the televised version ends.
Characters/Pairings: Sarah Jane Smith, Tenth Doctor, Luke Smith, Rani Chandra, Clyde Langer
Recced because: Like the summary says, this picks up where TWoSJS ends and assumes that the Doctor returns to take Sarah Jane and the kids on one last trip - a trip that includes dinosaurs, water fights, and, at long last, the elusive Florana. It's a fairly fluffy piece on the surface, though very much in character - Luke, Clyde, and Rani are represented especially well, amazed and in awe of what they're experiencing but still very much kids at heart. It's the ending that really packs a punch, though, when the adventure ends and both Sarah and the Doctor are forced to return to a reality that neither of them are quite prepared to deal with. Beautifully understated and bittersweet, the final scene does a great job of showing how they've grown both separately and together.
