Official K9 Website Launches

The official website for the Australian Park Entertainment produced K9 series has now been launched. The new website features videos, guides to the characters of the show, the monsters, and the episodes.

The K9 series was created by Bob Baker and Dave Martin - as was K9 himself - and is set in London in "a near future" where K9 has lost his memory of The Doctor and his previous life and is given a 'regeneration' with the help of Professor Gryffen ("a renowned expert in cybernetic systems"), Starkey ("an orphaned rebel who is fighting the system run by The Department"), Jorjie ("a headstrong young girl"), and Darius (who "works for the eccentric Professor Gryffen").

Firstly, the Beeb have finally officially announced the date that the first episode of Series Fnarg (if you buy DWM you'll get that), titled 'The Eleventh Hour', will be broadcast on BBC One on 3rd April at 6:25PM. This programme information is listed as "London only", but is bound to be the same across the UK.

The synopsis the BBC have given for 'The Eleventh Hour' is...

Get Cribbins to No.1!

There's an online Facebook campaign to get Bernard Cribbins back to Number 1 in the UK charts once more with his famous 1962 song Right Said Fred. Mr Cribbins is probably best-known to a lot of Doctor Who fans as Tom Campbell in Daleks - Invasion Earth 2150 AD and Wilfred Mott throughout Series 4 and in 'The End Of Time'.

The Facebook group, aptly titled "Let's get Bernard Cribbins back into the charts!", currently has (at the time of this being written) 1,944 members that have joined. If you want to get Bernard Cribbins back at No.1 spot in the UK singles charts all you have to do is buy Right Said Fred online for pennies.

So, go on, join the campaign!

More Series 5 Titles and Information

There are three more Series 5 episode titles that have been revealed by Doctor Who Magazine. The titles don't reveal too much about the stories but I'd warn people who don't want to be spoiled, just in case. The three more titles are...

5.04: 'The Time of Angels'
5.05: 'Flesh and Stone'
5.06: 'Vampires in Venice'

The first two are part of a two-parter featuring the famous Weeping Angels and The Doctor and Amy Pond are joined by River Song and that story is rumoured to be set at the "Crash of the Byzantium" that River mentioned in Series 4.

In 'Vampires in Venice' The Doctor and Amy are joined by Rory (played by Arthur Darvill) and this episode also features actor Alex Price as a sword-fighting vampire, as seen in the first Series 5 trailer.

What are your thoughts on these titles and information on episodes?
