I loved K9, after living with a 70kg great dane who sleeps with his smelly but on a chair and his head on the floor people would appreciate a robot dog, I have threatened to replace King with a K9 model when he is naughty. For starters, robot dogs don't fart.

I loved K9 for the same silly reasons I loved the cardboard spaceships and rubber monsters and stuff hanging on strings... because I just do lol.

I understand everything you're saying, Merlin, and agree with much of what you say, however I just can't help loving the banter and general silliness.

Pretty much everything between the years 1977 and 1979 was silly and way over the top, with performances being 'phoned through' and scenery being chewed left right and centre, so for me, K9 fit in rather well!

It was fun, at least the show had better toys to play with than my friends and I had at school we were envious.

I'm in the love K-9 group.
Yes, he was clunky and caused huge problems for the crew, but he made a nice foil/straight man for the Doctor and added to the goofy, sci-fi charm of the show.

Wish they'd use him more on the Sarah Jane show.

Still have my cheap plastic K-9 action figure I got years ago. My kids got me a Judoon and an Ood to keep him company.
