What is the television series K9 about?
K9 (previously K9 adventures) is a new spin-off series from Doctor Who, made in partnership with Jetix Europe and the Walt Disney Corporation. It is made for young children.

Is it set in the Doctor Who universe?
It is highly unlikely that any reference to Sarah Jane, the Doctor or even Doctor Who aliens like Daleks and Cybermen will be mentioned in the series as it will be a complete stand alone series, with a newly regenerated K9. However, as the K9 we first see is the one that Leela had with her on Gallifrey, and the rights are owned by Bob Baker who has a lot of input into the series, it is likely to fit comfortably into the Doctor Who timeline.

When does it start?
Australian Spring 2009 (Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere)


How many episodes?
26 episodes including the pilot. 24 minutes per episode.

K9 – The Series

GENRE: Comedy 
Running Time: 26 x 1/2 hr episodes

PREMISE
Somewhere in the future…

Originally created for the 1970s DOCTOR WHO series by Bob Baker and Dave Martin, K9 has long been an iconic television character. Now comes a brand new adventure series featuring everyone’s favourite robot dog!

K9 is a children’s sci-fi/adventure series combining comedy, action and suspense “X Files” meets “Men in Black” with a zany dash of “Ghostbusters”.  K9 mixes live action characters with stunning visual-effects.

London, in the future: STARKEY (14) orphan and rebel ultimately plans to bring down the system but for the time being he is prepared to simply slip through the cracks. While evading the police he takes refuge in a large detached house, now the residence of reclusive scientist, Professor GRYFFEN. He is followed by JORJIE (14) an adventurous girl who partly admires Starkey’s dissident stance, but mostly wants to share whatever excitement is afoot.

Inside the dilapidated mansion, they see Gryffen absorbed in an experiment with a strange piece of alien technology, a Space Time Manipulator (S/TM). DARIUS (15) an artful dodger who, among his many occupations, runs errands for Gryffen, confronts the pair, but at that moment a portal opens and through the hole torn in the fabric of space/time burst two reptilian warrior JIXEN. The Jixen attack Starkey. The teenager is saved from certain death by a small dog-like robot, K9 Mark I, who follows the Jixen through the portal and places himself between the monsters and boy.

In the ensuing battle, the only way K9 can defeat the Jixen is to blow himself and them to pieces. One surviving Jixen limps out of the mansion. Before expiring, K9 is able to give instructions that allow Starkey to initiate a regeneration program. A new, more sophisticated and futuristically designed K9 is regenerated. 

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, action, adventure, and some scares along the way, saving the earth from alien creatures, monsters and more than a few human threats.

Is it a cartoon?
The series will be live action mixed with state-of-the-art CGI. Remember the Dalek going up the stairs in the Doctor Who New series episode - Dalek. Well, it'll probably be better than that!

How will we see it?
The show will not only be shown on many children's Pay TV stations world wide, it'll also be available for purchase and download to some mobile phone networks.

Anything else?
The original voice of K9, John Leeson, will not be voicing the new K9. The new K9 is likely to speak much faster (for kids) and not have a BBC accent! Park Entertainment is making it and you can find out more at their website.
