Temperate London in K-9

The Australian production that is K-9 has revealed that the show’s setting of a future London with palm trees – due to shooting in Brisbane – can be explained away by changes to the climate by “global warming”

More details of the tenuous spin-off have been revealed, notably:

Set in London of 2050, the series revolves around the adventures of a group of kids who live with a professor employed by a clandestine government agency called ‘The Department’.

With the dog, tone and casting of the series all failing to inspire the majority of Doctor Who fans, a major element of any spin-off – existing audience interest – is already floundering.

More remarkable however is K-9 co-creator (and co-producer of this series) Bob Baker’s assertion that he always wanted K-9 to fly.

“He’s the way I really wanted him to be back in the original series in 1976, it has given me a chance to redesign the original K-9 into something present day or rather futuristic,” he said.

“As I always wanted he can now fly as opposed to trundling along the floor knocking things down, but now we’ve done him in CGI and he’s free as a bird.”

Except that’s he’s a robot dog, Bob.

Not a bird.
