Product Description

Television s Most Loved Robot Dog continues his action packed adventures in a late 21st Century London threatened by Alien Invasion and the sinister Department who control the population.

K9 and his friends; the Temporal dynamics expert Professor Gryffen, the astute teens Starkey, Jorjie Turner and the trouble making errand boy Darius help to defend the Earth from threats beyond the stars and from the dark places in Time.

The Department have called in a new Inspector Thorne , who has an insane hatred of K9 and his friends and he begins a crusade to destroy them all. The Earth is being watched by Alien menaces that are hatching a master plan that involves K9 and they are playing a deadly game with our hero s memory. This volume takes our intrepid Cybernetic hero and his friends to amongst other locations; back in time to the 1960 s, to a crashed Alien starship in the frozen north of Canada and to a Gladiatorial arena with Cyborg menaces battling for survival. Thorne and his masters hatch a plan to deprive K9 of his regeneration technology and use it in the largest menace K9 has ever had to face in all his years of Space and Time Travel!

This series features many new and bizarre Alien Menaces from beyond Time and Space as well as some evil home grown human adversaries.

3.0 out of 5 stars Any good? Negative, young master 3 April 2012
Verified Purchase
I don't doubt the genuine nature of the sentiments expressed in the positive reviews posted here, however can anyone really be so positive about what is a shadow of the show that spawned its eponymous hero, and light years away from being as good as The Sarah Jane Adventures? I wanted to like this, I really did, however it's excruciatingly bad - from the poorly disguised Aussie accents, to the cheap sets and hackneyed story-lines. I have to wonder what Bob Baker was thinking when he created this travesty...I have to give it three stars though, as my seven year old daughter thinks it's great, and after all, she's clearly the target audience, not me!

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid like the plague 3 Feb 2011
As a long time Dr Who fan (37 years) I waited for another attempt at K9 and this is as disappointing as the first K9 spinoff. The only good thing to say about it is at least there is now a home for the awful new design Daleks to go to and hopefully disappear forever.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sick of all these fake 5-star reviews 16 Jan 2011
As I said, can there stop being so many obviously planted phony reviews? In all truth, if you've not seen an episode of this and you buy the boxset, I can guarantee disappointment. Possibly even anger at how poor it is. I gave the first boxset 2 stars, this one gets one star taken off just for all the fake reviews.
Seriously, this is the polar opposite of the Sarah Jane Adventures or Torchwood. Whereas those two spin-offs were intelligent, well-written and respected the audience's intelligence, this comes across as cheap, half-baked and hastily-made.
Set in future London but filmed in a warehouse in Brisbane, it tells the story of an agoraphobic professor who has a time-portal in his house, through which appear some rubbery monsters and then our favourite metal dog. Deciding the only way to stop the marauding costumes is suicide, K9 promptly self-destructs, only to regenerate into his new form - a chunky, flying, mostly-CGI oddity. Another few teenagers randomly turn up and stay for no discernible plot reasons, and they all end up fighting new rubber monsters and/or bad CGI wraiths every episode.
Several plot strands start promisingly but then get abandoned by the next episode, and K9's new abilities border on the ridiculous. The acting is uniformly terrible, with dodgy English accents being mangled by all the (obviously) Australian actors. Which begs the question, why not just set the programme in Australia to begin with? The special effects are generally poor, with the aforementioned rubber suited monsters looking worse than some of the 70's efforts in Doctor Who. The plots start off as fairly non-descript monster-of-the-week stand-alones. Later episodes try and build up a villanous shadowy organisation, but this is hamstrung by bad acting and ludicrous plot developments.
