BBC Studios have today announced a brand new audio in their Doctor Who audio range K9 Audio Annual.
Seven colourful stories featuring K9 in the company of Sarah Jane, Brendan, Aunt Lavinia, the Doctor and Romana.
Everyone’s favourite mutt-shaped automaton discovers that both outer space and 1980s Earth can be fraught with danger in these colourful tales from the pages of K9 Annual and Doctor Who Annual.
Following their exploits in K9 & Company, Sarah Jane and K9 embark on a watery mission in The Monster of Loch Crag. In Powerstone there’s something extraordinary in the cellar of Aunt Lavinia’s house, and then K9 is the centre of attention at a Midsummer Night’s ceremony in Hound of Hell. Later, Sarah finds that the thrills of a blockbuster movie set are all too real in The Shroud of Azaroth.
K9’s travels in the TARDIS are also covered in this collection: when the Doctor, Romana and K9 arrive at an intergalactic conference they must avert The Voton Terror. Later they’re ensnared by the Light Fantastic on Planet UX80, and when the Doctor visits an old friend they encounter some very Reluctant Warriors.
K9, occasionally written K-9, is the name of several fictional robotic canines, first appearing in 1977. K9 has also been a central character in three of the series television spin-offs: the one-off K-9 and Company (1981), The Sarah Jane Adventures (2007–2011) and K-9 (2009–2010).
Former Doctor Who cast John Leeson, Bonnie Langford, Dan Starkey and Geoffrey Beevers read these nostalgic and much-loved adventures.
Readings produced by Neil Gardner, sound design by David Darlington, Executive producer: Michael Stevens.
