Die-hard fans of “Doctor Who” — going back a few decades — will be happy to know that Shout! Factory is releasing “K9: The Complete Series” on May 7, 2013. The 4-DVD set contains all 26 original episodes along with bonus features.
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 he stars in his own brand-new adventure series, available for pre-order on Amazon.com.
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 defense against dangers threatening from any place – and anytime – in the galaxy. They’ll 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. It’s “X-Files” meets “Men in Black” meets “Ghostbusters.”
