    K-9 was a constant source of difficulty for the crew: the cameras interfered with the signals from its remote operator, causing it to frequently run amok; it was difficult to frame the prop so that it was visible with the human actors; and the prop sat so low to the ground that even a cigarette butt could stop it dead. The writers didn't care for K-9 either, feeling his extraordinary abilities made solving problems too easy for the Doctor and his companions.
