The classic era of Doctor Who (1963-89) spawned many a classic tale and even more amazing characters.
But during that long tenure in the nation's hearts only one character managed to be rewarded with a spinoff. It was, quite rightfully, the fantastic and beautiful Elisabeth Sladen in K9 and Company.
Unfortunately, it wasn't the huge success the BBC were looking for, so perhaps it was a case of the old "once bitten, twice shy" theorem.
And it's a damn shame, my friends, as there was so much potential in amongst the wealth of personality ingrained into all the supporting cast over the years.
That's why we've decided to take a look at who would have made the best spinoffs.
