K-9 Creator at SFX Weekender

The SFX Weekender event is getting closer and closer for those of you lucky enough to be attending and for all you lucky ticket holders who are Doctor Who fans (if you’re not, why on earth are you here?) there’s another treat in store as it’s just been confirmed that Bob Baker, one half of the partnership that bought us K-9, will be attending the spectacle!

Baker who alongside the late Dave Martin co-wrote classic Doctor Who serials such as The Three Doctors, The Invisible Enemy and The Armageddon Factor, will be coming along with Paul Tams – a man who not only has had an illustrious career illustrating Terry Nation’s Dalek Annual and several other Doctor Who books but has also been involved in bringing the character of K-9 back to life with his own series since 1997.

Now that Baker and Tams have finally got their project off the ground and K-9 finally has his own series (Doctor Who has three very successful spin offs, what other show can claim that? And no, Star Trek doesn’t count-so there!) they’ll be attending the weekender event where they will undoubtedly spill all the beans on the making of the show!

It’s a must for all and some tickets are still available if you call 08700 11 00 34 or visit the SFX website at www.sfxweekender.com/tickets. The event takes place on the 4th and 5th of February 2011 in East Sussex.

What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!



One Response to K-9 Creator at SFX Weekender

    1) Why doesn’t Star Trek count? TAS, TNG, DS9, VOY, & ENT are technically spinoffs, so why doesn’t it count – or is that just a snarky remark to make your point? :)

    2) The old US sitcom Happy Days had five spinoffs (seven if you count animated shows). Although how successful they all were is up to debate. Happy Days itself is technically considered a spinoff of “Love, American Style”. :)
