K-9: Waste of Time?
Desperate for a vaguely Doctor Who related fix? Happy to waste time in front of a pointless digital channel watching a pointless spin-off that makes the concept of Rose Tyler: Earth Defender sound like Hamlet?

The premiere of the pilot episode Regeneration was broadcast at 6pm on the subscription channel, and thankfully has gone largely unnoticed.
