K is for...


One of only two machines to qualify as a companion of the Doctor, K9 is a robot dog, originally made in the 50th century by Professor Marius, who gave him to the Doctor.  The original K9 chose to stay on Gallifrey with Leela, after which the Doctor built a replacement, who stayed with him and Romana till both Romana and K9 remained in E-Space.  The Doctor also built K9 Mark 3, whom he sent to Sarah Jane as a companion.  He appeared to be destroyed blowing up the Krillitane, but the Doctor rebuilt him, though it's not clear whether this version should be called Mark 4 or a revamped Mark 3.  K9 continued as Sarah Jane's companion, taking some time out to prevent a black hole created by CERN from engulfing Earth, until she sent him to Oxford with Luke.

In the meantime, one version of K9 (probably Mark 1) had been fitted with regenerative circuits and ended up in a near-future London, where he helped a group of teenagers to protect the Earth against alien invasion.

K9's personality has remained the same through his various versions.  He's completely loyal to whoever he regards as "master" or "mistress", except for certain occasions when he's reprogrammed, and is always, at all times, eager to offer information, whether it's wanted or not.  His attitude to other machines is more ambivalent, and he has what appears to be a love-hate relationship with Mr Smith, Sarah Jane's alien computer.
