K-9 and Company was a proposed television spin-off of the original series run of Doctor Who (1963–1989).
It was to feature former series regulars Sarah Jane Smith, an investigative journalist played by Elisabeth Sladen, and K-9. Both characters had been companions of the Fourth Doctor, but they had not appeared together before. A single episode, "A Girl's Best Friend", was produced as a pilot for the proposed series, but was not taken up. The episode was broadcast by BBC1 as a Christmas Special on 28 December 1981.
To celebrate Elisabeth Sladen's life, you can join us for "A Girl's Best Friend" tomorrow from 7.00pm. (Press Play at 7.30pm)
