LONDON: Doctor Who's faithful robotic assistant, K9, is leaving the kennel for centre stage with his own series and a range of hi-tech toys.

K9, who will be reunited with his master this weekend in a guest appearance on the BBC's revived Doctor Who, will star in an animated series made with the Walt Disney Corporation.

K9 Adventures will be a 26-part comedy-fantasy series set in space. The new-look K9 is a galactic crimefighter far removed from the underpowered pup given to the then Doctor, Tom Baker, in 1977.

Bob Baker, co-creator of the robot dog, promises to give his lethally armed pet a "sleek new look" using CGI animation mixed with live action.

The new series is being made by Jetix Europe, owner of 14 children's television channels screened to 43 million households across Europe and the Middle East. Disney is the majority shareholder in Jetix.

Contractual obligations mean the Doctor is unable to join K9 on his space mission. Doctor Who is owned by the BBC but K9 Adventures is the property of Bob Baker and Paul Tams, a veteran Doctor Who designer.

K9 partnered the Doctor from 1977-81, and Saturday's special episode features a reunion between dog, master and assistant Sarah Jane Smith, again played by Elisabeth Sladen.
