Vote K-9!

The SFX website is canvassing votes for their 200 Greatest SF and fantasy characters ever poll in celebration of SFX’s 200th edition, which features in the August – and this week they’re looking for robots!

Doctor Who - Vote K9!With heroes, heroines, monsters and superheroes all covered already – ideal if you want to vote for the Doctor, Jack Harkness, Rose Tyler, Donna Noble or Daleks – this is your chance to vote for a legend among Doctor Who characters, K-9!

So successful was he after one episode (1977’s The Invisible Enemy) that K-9 remained in the TARDIS for 4 years, before being left in E-Space at the close of 1981’s Warrior’s Gate. With an earlier version already left on Gallifrey in The Invasion of Time, the Doctor even thought to send another build of his faithful robot dog to Sarah Jane – the reason behind K-9 and Company in 1981 and a piece of continuity that lasts right the way to the modern day with The Sarah Jane Adventures.

And of course latterly, K-9 has had his own spinoff series, which is set to air on Channel 5 later this year.

So if you want to get K-9 top of a list that includes R2-D2, the Terminator and Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Commander Data, head on over to the SFX website and get voting! 

Curiously, however, there is no mention of Kamelion in the list…
