TARDIS Tuesday: K9 Exterminated!

Doggone it K9 is for the chop
-Daily Mail, 1980
A time-travel back to 1980 today when it was announced that the Doctor's faithful robotic assistant K9 was in danger of been put down.

Indeed this story which I recall extracting from my Grandad's Daily Mail announced that K9 was likely to be written out of the series along with Lala (sic) Ward, although not until after Christmas in order not to upset the nations toy shop owners who had a lot of K9 presents for sale that year.

The BBC needn't have worried. Those Talking K9 toys barely worked anyway!
