The Sarah Jane Adventures Episodes 22 & 23:
Enemy Of The Bane


Mrs Wormwood returns, and claims to be in need of Sarah Jane's help. She alleges that she is being hunted by the Bane due to her failure during their invasion of Earth. In retaliation, she wants to foil the Bane's plan to resurrect an ancient interstellar conqueror named Horath. She requires information stored in UNIT's Black Archive, and Sarah Jane reluctantly agrees to approach her old friend, Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, for assistance. But it is actually Mrs Wormwood -- in allegiance with Sontaran Commander Kaagh -- who is plotting to revive Horath, and thereby dominate the galaxy.
