K-9 and Company: A Girl's Best Friend (1981)

The fourth Doctor’s robotic pooch got itself a pilot for an offshoot series that didn't get green-lit. It’s similar to the parent show, but there are no aliens or reckless jaunts through time. That doesn't mean all is rosy and safe, however, because a coven of Hecate worshipers are planning something nefarious in the pastoral English countryside.
Despite not having her name in the title the real star is Elisabeth Sladen as the forthright, journalistic-minded Sarah Jane Smith.
The title implies that K-9 (Mk III) would've been constant, but would the ‘company’ be changeable? Were more Who cameos planed?
