K9 Returns For Sarah Jane's Third Series

By Mark
As well as confirming that this year's special episodes of Doctor Who will be filmed in high definition, the latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine has also confirmed that K9 will be returning for the third series of The Sarah Jane Adventures. K9 won't be starring in all twelve of the episodes but it's estimated that he will appear in about half of the series. Nikki Smith, one of the producers of The Sarah Jane Adventures, said;

"We've already got 10 scripts at first draft stage, and I can now announce that K9 is going to make a return to Sarah Jane's attic! He's been locked away in that safe, saving the world from a Black Hole, for far too long now. And he's so loved, especially by children, that we wanted him back. Many thanks to his co-creator, Bob Baker, and the estate of the late Dave Martin, for allowing this to happen. K9 won't be in every single episode - right now, we estimate he'll appear in approximately six of the 12 episodes. And I can promise that the fun is only just beginning - just wait 'til he gets to meet Mr. Smith properly!"

K9 was last seen helping saving the day in the Doctor Who series four finale 'Journey's End' and will even be getting his own series later this year. The series was originally going to be called 'K9 Adventures' but has now been shortened to just "K9". It will feature many new alien races and is currently being filmed in Australia. Filming for the show is near completion and if all goes to plan, it will air later this year. More information about the series 'K9' will be posted as soon as it becomes available. Are you looking forward to the return of K9?

    Im very glad to hear that K9 is returning to SJA, im guessing the idea of it is to wave him off to his K9 series.
