Telekinesis is like rough sex, judging from the latest episode of Doctor Who spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures . Or maybe it's more like angry masturbation — with a basketball. In any case, it's awesome to see Sarah Jane burrowing into yet another sinister science organization — without any kids following her around for once.

Sarah Jane normally has a Scooby gang of three teenagers helping her. But she lost custody of her vat-grown "son" Luke after some evil aliens went on television and pretended to be his "real" parents. And she had a fit of conscience about exposing her neighbor kid Maria to the dangers of alien fart monsters like the Slitheen. It won't last, of course. But it's nice to see Sarah Jane uncovering sinister basketball wankers on her own.
