     Sun Reports a New K-9 Television Series  View Printable Version

    Doctor Who NewsThe Sun Online is reporting in a story, Dr Who's K9 gets a lead that once again K-9 is being spun off in a new series outside of Doctor Who.

    As we previously reported in Doctor Who Reunited with K9 that our favourite canine droid is returning in the 2006 series of Doctor Who along with Elizabeth Sladen (Sarah Jane Smith) in episode 3, School Reunion written by Toby Whithouse and directed by James Hawes.

    Now The Sun tabloid reports that an insider has told them, “It would have been a shame to put K9 back in his kennel, so we’ve come up with an idea for another drama.

    “It’s early days but K9 and Elizabeth Sladen are inseparable characters.

    “There are loads of things we can do with Doctor Who. It’s one of the most popular shows on TV and viewers can’t seem to get enough of it.”

    The BBC has not confirmed any new K9 series at this time.

    We originally got word of a possible new K9 series in October 2005 when a video interview with Bob Baker and Paul Tams at The Who Shop in London dating back to the Spring of 2005 spoke of a new K9 series was brought to our attention by forum poster, PolyphonicAsthma. At the time we could not confirm a new K9 spin-off series, nor can we confirm if the series mentioned in this interview is related in any way to the new spin-off series being reported by The Sun now.

    This of course would not be the first time K9 has been spun off as a new series outside of Doctor Who. A pilot for a new series, K9 and Company which also paired K9 with Elizabeth Sladen was first transmitted on the BBC on the 28th of December 1981. It was never given a go-ahead for a series though. Only the pilot episode was made.

    Thanks to Taras Hnatyshyn for originally reporting The Sun Online article in our forum thread, K9 & Co. Mk. 2. The original thread about a new K9 series from an interview with Bob Baker and Paul Tams can be found in our forum thread, K9 New Tails.

    At long last, the new Doctor Who section on the Sci-Fi Channel web site is now live and located at this URL address:

    http://www.scifi.com/doctorwho/

    First reported here weeks ago, up until Friday, February 24th visiting the section would have resulted in a 404 Not Found error page.. We are pleased to report that the new Doctor Who section is now up and running on SciFi.com just three weeks prior to the launch of the 2005 series in the channel.

    Televised promos have also begun on the Channel promoting the new series at long last this week. Word is getting out on Who is coming to the Sci-Fi Channel.

    Doctor Who News

    As reported this week, Eve Myles has been cast in a lead role in the new Doctor Who spin-off series, Torchwood. Today, the Mirror.co.uk is now reporting that a BBC insider revealed that "Everyone's sure Eve's being lined up to step into her (Billie Piper's) shoes." The Mirror is reporting that the 27 year old actress is "tipped to put the sigh into sci-fi as Doctor Who's new sidekick in the Tardis."

    Again, this is only rumour and hearsay at this point. It seems unlikely that the actress will be playing lead roles in both series (unless she leaves Torchwood after the first series to join the Doctor in 2007). Read the article at Mirror - DOCTOR WHOA! Is Eve new girl in the Tardis?

    Now that the Gallifrey 2006 convention has come to pass this past weekend in Los Angeles, you may be wondering what might be in store for next year with this annual event... "The Eighteenth Amendment of Gallifrey One" will take place from February 16th though the 19th, 2007 at the Los Angeles Airport Marriott Hotel in California (U.S.).

    Guests so far include, Colin Baker (the Sixth Doctor), Nicola Bryant (Peri), Maggie Stables (Evelyn Smythe), and Terry Molloy (Davros). We are sure more will be added in the coming year.

    Although it is not yet active at the time of publishing this article, the new Doctor Who section on the Sci-Fi Channel web site will be located at this URL address:

    http://www.scifi.com/doctorwho/

    We know this is the case because if you go the home page of the Sci-Fi Channel, then click on "Shows" and then click on "All Shows" you will then see a listing of all their shows, if you scroll down in the 'series' window, you will see "Dr. Who (2005)" (what, it was too much for them to spell out "Doctor"?), if you click on it, it will bring you to the future home of the Doctor Who section of the Sci-Fi Channel's web site. At this time, it will only result in a '404 Error' (web page not found). But we imagine this is the URL to watch for future Doctor Who developments on the Sci-Fi Channel. It is premiering in about six weeks and to our knowledge there has yet to be any promotion at all for it on the channel at this time, and very little on the site... but this will hopefully change soon.

    Tom Baker was voted the 4th most recognizable voice in the UK after the Queen, Tony Blair, and Margaret Thatcher in a recent poll. Now Tom Baker will be even more recognizable serving as the voice for mobile text messages sent to home phones from British Telecom (BT).

    He was chosen because his voice is so recognizable. Baker's voice is also heard as the narrator in the popular series, Little Britain.

    Baker, now 72 years old recorded 11,593 phrases spanning 11 days covering every single sound in the English language.

    Tom Baker reports, "It's a big responsibility to be Britain's voice of text. What appeals to me most is the thought that I will be bringing good news to people whether it is a cheeky message, a birthday greeting, or just a quick hello. Whatever it is, hopefully my voice will bring a smile to people's faces."

    OK, before you get too excited, there are not Doctor Who episodes being offered, but the BBC is now distributing Doctor Who related videos that can be viewed on your Apple iPod (5th generation and beyond), as well mobile phones, Creative Zen, and other media players.

    Don't have a portable media player?

    Have no fear, you can still view the videos on your computer, simply use media players such as Quicktime or iTunes to play the MPEG videos (as well as various other players), or the Windows Media Player to play the Windows Media files.

    Currently available are short interviews with David Tennant, Camille Coduri, and Noel Clarke speaking in reference to The Christmas Invasion, as well as the Doctor Who 2006 Series Trailer which was seen at the end of The Christmas Invasion

    You can download them here: BBC - Doctor Who - Video Take-away

    Note: For some reason when downing the MPEG (M4V) files (for iTunes and the iPod), a .txt extension was added after the .m4v extention. Simply delete the .txt extension and it should work fine in iTunes and your iPod.

    Doctor Who News

    icWales is reporting that the BBC Wales producers have been scouting out the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff again for possible location shooting for Doctor Who.

    icWales reports of an onlooker commenting, "There were members of the production team taking pictures and having a look around. They were hoping to film at the stadium when there was a game on, they decided it was too much hassle and now they're just looking at using it. They wanted the Doctor to be running up and down stairs and filming in the BBC commentary box."

    "They were wandering around the building, and even went into the away changing rooms to take pictures."

    The stadium's tunnels had been used in the past for shooting Doctor Who sequences the article reports, but this time the are looking for more recognizable parts.

    The BBC will not comment on any of the details except to say that the crew were there out looking for locations to use a spokesperson indicated.
