Baker and Martin's most notable contributions to the Doctor Who mythos were probably the robot dog K9 (created for The Invisible Enemy) and the renegade Time Lord Omega (created for Doctor Who's tenth anniversary story, The Three Doctors).


Outside of Doctor Who, Dave had collaborated with Bob on the 1975 children's science fantasy television serials Sky and Into the Labyrinth.


Martin died on 30 March 2007. He had been diagnosed with lung cancer earlier in the year.
