HEROES OF DOCTOR WHO K9 JOHN LEESON

HE’S BEEN AROUND AS LONG AS R2D2 AND HE’S LOVED A MUCH. ORIGINALLY COMING ABOARD THE TARDIS WITH THE DOCTOR AND LEELA, K9 BECAME AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE SHOW AND A PROBLEMATIC ONE. ROUGH TERRAIN AND ROUGE RADIO SIGNALS MEANT HE WAS A HANDFUL DURING FILMING BUT WHAT DOG ISN’T?

THERE HAVE BEEN SEVERAL VERSIONS, ONE STAYED WITH LEELA, ONE STAYED WITH ROMANA 2 IN E SPACE, ONE WENT TO SARAH JANE SMITH BUT WAS DESTROYED IN SCHOOL REUNION WHEN HE SACRIFICED HIMSELF TO STOP THE KRILLITANES BUT THE TENTH DOCTOR CREATED A NEW AND IMPROVED VERSION TO STAY WITH SARAH.

HE WENT EVENTUALLY WITH LUKE SMITH TO UNIVERSITY HAVING SPENT A COUPLE OF YEARS PLUGGING A BLACK HOLE IN SARAH’S ATTIC AND WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN TOWING THE EARTH BACK HOME IN JOURNEY’S END.

AN AUSTRALIAN COMPANY HAVE MADE A NEW SERIES OF K9 ADVENTURES WITH AN UPDATED K9 THAT CAN FLY WHICH IS WAITING WORD ON A SECOND SERIES BUT IS NOW AVAILABLE ON DVD.

IT SEEMS STRANGE HE WAS GONE FOR SO LONG AND YET HE IS A BIG PART OF THE SHOW.

VOICED BY JOHN LEESON FOR MOST OF THE TIME, BRIEFLY DAVID BRIERLEY TOOK OVER FOR A SEASON, K9 QUICKLY GREW INTO SOMETHING EVERY KID AND ADULT WANTED AND ISN’T IT GREAT WE HAVE REMOTE CONTROL K89S NOW AND ACTION FIGURES.

ALL GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT.
