K9, "Doctor Who's" robot dog companion, is set to feature in his very own feature film titled "K9: Timequake," which will be penned by co-creator Bob Baker.
According to a press release via Doctor Who News, "The new K9 will be appearing in a Multi-Million Dollar movie which promises to be a great action adventure set in deep Space. The film will be full of dashing heroes and heroines, Androids, monstrous Aliens and an ultimate foe who will also be familiar to Doctor Who fans everywhere: the megalomaniac OMEGA."
The film will be a UK co-production, with exteriors filmed overseas and studio work planned for the UK.
K9 first appeared in the 1977 "Doctor Who" TV serial "The Invisible Enemy." He has since appeared throughout the Doctor's many adventures, up through David Tennant's Tenth Doctor in an episode titled "Class Reunion." K9 also appeared in "The Sarah Jane Adventures" alongside Elizabeth Sladen's Sarah Jane and in an Australia children's series called "K9."
"K9: Timequake" is scheduled for release sometime in 2017, which marks the character's fortieth anniversary.
