Product Description

Originally created for the 1977 DOCTOR WHO episode The Invisible Enemy by Bob Baker and Dave Martin, K9 has long been an iconic television character. But now K9 stars in his own brand-new adventure series!


Blasting back into action via a space time manipulator, everyone’s favorite robot dog arrives in late 21st-century London, now scarred by alien intrusion and government rule through their cybernetic police force. With the assistance of teenagers Jorjie, Darius, drifter Starkey and Professor Gryffen, K9 becomes Earth’s front-line defence against dangers threatening from any place, and anytime,in the galaxy! They will have a lot of fun, action, adventure, and some jolts along the way, saving the earth from alien creatures, scary monsters and more than a few nasty humans!


Mixing live action characters with stunning visual-effects, K9 is a children’s sci-fi/adventure series combining comedy, action and suspense. Imagine a mash-up of X Files and Men in Black with a zany dash of Ghostbusters and then add one magnificent metallic mutt, and there you have K9!

An amusing footnote in the Doctor Who universe, K-9: The Complete Series gives the spotlight to the faithful robot canine companion of the British science fiction icon for its own kid-friendly adventures. Conceived by writer Bob Baker for the 1977 Doctor Who serial The Invisible Enemy, the crisp-toned, perspicacious K-9 (voiced, both then and now, by John Leeson) has remained one of the Doctor's most popular sidekicks over the course of his five-decade career, appearing opposite both Tom Baker and David Tennant's Doctors as well as Elisabeth Sladen in the Sarah Jane Adventures, the premise of which also seems to provide the template for K-9--supporting Who character helps kids in Who-lite encounters with aliens. Here, K-9 meets his new human companions through a space-time manipulator created by Professor Gryffen (Robert Moloney) and his two teenage friends (Keegan Joyce and Philippa Coulthard). After self-destructing in order to defeat an extraterrestrial menace also caught in the professor's portal, K-9 rebuilds himself into a sleeker model (a CG creation) with the ability to fly. The quartet's subsequent adventures have the right amount of action and exotic aliens, none of whom should be particularly frightening to young viewers over kindergarten age, and K-9 remains a charming central figure, with the qualities that made him a favorite on Doctor Who--cute, smart, unconditionally loyal, and equipped with a small battery of futuristic gadgetry--also minting him an ideal hero for a children's show: a best friend-cum-bodyguard with a solution for every situation. Who fans will find that there is very little from the original series present in K-9 save for brief glimpses of some familiar extraterrestrial menaces (images of a Sea Devil, an Alpha Centauran, and a Mandrel in "Curse of Anubis"), which is due to the BBC's ownership of Doctor Who and the original K-9 design, which required Baker (who owns the K-9 character) and his Australian series coproducers to keep Who references to a bare minimum while also providing a new design for their titular protagonist. The absence of Whovian continuity will probably bother only adult viewers; younger audiences, for whom the show is clearly intended, will simply enjoy the program for its own merits. The four-disc K-9 set contains all 26 episodes of the series in anamorphic transfers, as well as a pair of brief, lightweight extras: an "interview" with K-9 and a very bare-bones making-of featurette. --Paul Gaita
