K-9 and Company was a pilot for a TV spin-off of Doctor Who, featuring the characters of Sarah Jane Smith and K-9, companions of The Doctor. A new BBC controller disliked the concept and production of the series was cancelled before production of the pilot was completed. The pilot was screened on the BBC as a New Year's special in 1981. The special's canonicity to Doctor Who was confirmed in the 1983 special "The Five Doctors" which featured Sarah Jane owning K-9.
Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen) and her robot dog, K-9 (voiced by John Leeson), find themselves tackling a supernatural cult intent on sacrificing a young boy to achieve unimaginable power.
