COMPO Exclusive K9 Signed Pic

The Doctor’s robot mutt has regenerated

Doctor Who ’s robot dog K9 blasts into his own live action, sci-fi adventure series out on DVD now, and to celebrate we have a 3ft long montage photo of the cast, signed by all the cast including John Leeson (K9’s voice both in both Doctor Who and the new series), to give away!

Originally created for Doctor Who in 1977, K9 has long been an iconic television character. He was created by Bob Baker & Dave Martin, who had been long standing contributors to the show from the Jon Pertwee days through to the Tom Baker era. The robotic dog worked his way into the nation’s hearts and he made on screen come back in 2006 showing up in the David Tennant story “School Reunion”.

K9 now blasts into his own sci-fi/adventure series combining comedy, action and suspense, which comes to DVD this month. The series combines live action and stunning visual effects and comes from one of his original co-creators Bob Baker.

London, the near future: orphan teenager Starkey ultimately plans to bring down the system but for the time being he is prepared to simply slip through the cracks. He and his friend Jorjie hide out in the residence of reclusive scientist, Professor Gryffen and his errand boy Darius, who are experimenting with alien technology. The Professor blows a hole in the fabric of space/time and they are attacked by two reptilian warrior JIXEN, but they are saved by a small dog-like robot, K9, who follows the Jixen through the portal.

K9 and Starkey, with the assistance of Jorjie, Darius and Gryffen, become the Earth’s front line defence against dangers threatening from anywhere and anytime in the galaxy. They will have a lot of fun, adventure, and some scares along the way, saving the earth from alien creatures, monsters and more than a few human threats.
