Doctor Who's Robot Dog Finally Hitting The Big Time

K-9, the robot dog from time traveling action-comedy Doctor Who, is finally getting his own TV show. Bob Baker, who created K-9 in 1977 and also co-wrote the Wallace And Gromit films, is in Australia working on 26 scripts for K-9 Adventures, which starts production next month. And as you can see from the concept image, which came out a couple years ago, K-9 is getting a makeover. And unlike in his 1982 spin-off with Sarah-Jane Smith, he won't be stuck on Earth investigating witchcraft — instead, his new show will be a "space-fantasy adventure" series, according to Jetix Europe.
