The weekly guide to Sarah Jane Adventures and K-9 broadcasts, plus any extra matters.

Sarah Jane Series 3 has concluded, but BBC One in the UK will repeat the first series in the same Thursday and Friday timeslots for the next few weeks.
The K-9 Series will be airing at least some of its episodes firstrun - in POLAND. The Polish version of Disney XD will air the K-9 pilot on 12 December (the episode which aired on Disney XD in the UK), a new episode on Sunday 13 December, and then new episodes weekly on Saturdays. We do not know of airdates on any other networks yet.
