"K-9 Adventures" in Development - not a BBC Production
- Various media sources are reporting on an upcoming children's show
starring K-9, the robotic dog from the 4th Doctor era (who is guest
starring in the upcoming Doctor Who episode "School Reunion"). The
sources do not say who will provide the voice or when it will
premiere, but it is not a BBC production. Jetix Europe (with branded
kids programme schedules on cable/satellite channels in many parts
of the world) is behind the project.
