K9 and Company

1 episode, broadcast: 28th December 1981
Sarah arrives to stay at her aunt Lavinia's to write a book, and finds an old package awaiting her. However, it isn't opened until after she collects Lavinia's ward Brendon from the station and they both discover it contains a present from the Doctor - K9!
Meanwhile, a mysterious coven has been meeting at an abandoned church , and Sarah begins to suspect they have something to do with the apparent disappearance of her aunt. This isn't helped when someone attempts to break into the house, though K9 sees the assailant off through the estate nurseries. In the morning they discuss the incident and the damage in the nursery (actually caused by K9!) with estate manager Bill Pollock .
Brendan is kidnapped, and the main suspect is estate caretaker George Tracey, so Sarah secrets K9 to his cottage for surveillance , before she reports the disappearance to the unhelpful police . Collecting K9, Sarah discovers the plot to sacrifice Brendan to the coven god Hecate, and then desperately travels around churches to try and find out where it will take place . As darkness falls, K9 identifies another possibility with Sarah and they rush to the location and arrive in time to stop the sacrifice .
All's well, as Lavinia finally contacts Sarah from America, and K9 settles down to learn a carol ...
