Quite possibly the best Doctor Who toy ever, and the one fans of K9 have been waiting for!

As a fan of the original series - and K9- I always wanted a decent remote control K9. The nearest to this was the PalitToy "Talking K9" of the late 1970's - but that wasn't remote controlled or animated.

Firstly the detail on this toy is stunning. The proportions are exact and everything is just as it should be - although the bluey silver paint is more reminiscent of K9 MK1 and not the later models most are familiar with. He has antennae silver ears and his famous tartan collar. On his right he has his K9 removable panel, underneath which are his inner "workings" (as seen in his recent story) and his power switch.

You start K9 by opening his side panel (just as in his recent story - School Reunion). His power switch is located underneath his side panel and for this reason I have dropped one star of the rating - I can see the retaining catches for the panel becoming broken or snapped off easily as this panel must be removed to power on K9 every time.

On switching him on - he lights up: three blue lights under his control panel, his eye (sadly only one bulb and not two as in the original) and his outer control panel (although these are lit constantly, rather than twinkling as in the original). He then says: "System re-starting. All primary drives functioning" as in his recent story.

As for the action it is superb. He trundles along with poor traction and makes a lot of noise - just like the original. His ears turn 45 degrees as he moves. He can be made to say a number of selected phrases from the controller:

"The master rebuilt me.

As all the family love Doctor Who I was persuaded to buy K9 for our 5 year old son (not just his dad) for Christmas.

After all the struggle of getting him out of his box, numerous tags and ties, could have done with Doctor Who to untie him. We realised that the screw thread for the remote controller did not fit in very well, and the metal rod would fall out every now and again.

K9 looked the part, my husband was very excited as the phrases were original, and was more than pleased when he realised that his side panel came off, boys with toys do they ever change? (Isn't it funny that adults love to play with childrens toys, the ones that they can associate with from their childhood, I bet most boys wanted a K9 or darlek when Doctor Who first came out).

The movements he made were brilliant, his ears make me laugh, K9 spent all Christmas day banging into things and trying to trip people up, thanks to our five year old (our dog not amused by being ram raided by K9) luckily K9 is male like ours so no problems there.

Only thing I will say is why are plastic, thin plastic toys so expensive, surely it doesn't cost anything nearly as much as £49.00 to make, some K9's were selling on Ebay for £60.00 certainly a rip off (batteries must also be bought, more cost) I bought mine for £29.00 from Forbiddenplanet.com for £29.00 with free delivery, (had to order it in September though and then wait until delivery in November, then put away until Christmas, but was glad I hadn't forked out the full £49.

Growing up in the late 1970's I used to be glued to the TV when K-9 was with Tom Baker as the Doctor. So to see him come back in the new Dr Who series with the 10th Doctor was a real treat. And this Remote controlled K-9 looks 'fantastic' and so much better, than the talking 'palitoy' toy of the 1970's. This is a must buy for the Dr Who fan new to the series or of old. I like the removable side panel and the various other functions, Such as movable ears and a retracting nose gun. On the minus side is the odd blue colour which isn't like the TV prop. And the ugly body fixing lugs to the right side of the model. It has skid steer front wheel drive just like the real Prop making the same sounds. But just like the 'Real' thing it has very poor traction so it won't run anything but the smoothest of carpets. And don't pull the nose gun out or it will break as i have accidently found out !.However it just shows how technology has moved on.

If your young or old then you'll know his name, it's K-9 the dog from Doctor Who in 1 / 4 form.

He's radio controlled and comes complete with eight realistic sound effects (from the modern Doctor Who saga,) and a retractable blaster in his nose. All are controlled via the remote control. K-9 isn't the fastest tin dog on carpeted floors but on vinyl and wooden surfaces he's fast, manenvouable and scares the family cat. The remote control despite being `slightly' cheap in appearance is long range and easy to use, with the left lever controlling the left wheel and the right level controlling the right wheel. K-9 requires 4x AA batteries and 1x PP3 (smoke alarm) battery. I made the mistake of buying cheap Panasonic batteries which didn't last ten minutes. Duracell's or other alkalines are great but usually expensive. If like me, you feel that K-9 will be in use often and by a variety of people then I suggest investing in some high capacity rechargeable as they last almost as longs as alkalines and will save you a small fortune in the long term. The only thing better than this would be a life size replica of K-9, which is not the easiest thing to come across...or afford. This collectable toy is reasonably cheap, realistic, looks good and most importantly is fun and despite being constructed of plastic the toy can take a fair beating. So in summery K-9 would make the perfect pet this Christmas for any Doctor Who Fan... young or old.
