We only hope he's still TARDIS-trained.
The Doctor is to be reunited with his faithful robot dog, K9, in the next series of Doctor Who.
K9, who was the loyal friend to Tom Baker's Doctor between 1977 to 1981, joins the Doctor, Rose, Mickey and his current mistress, Sarah Jane Smith, in a fight against the evil Krillitanes.
"I am delighted to have been invited back on board the series - and a little gathered rust is no object to a fully functional K9!" said John Leeson, the original voice of the robot dog.
Producer, Phil Collinson adds: "It is great to be welcoming K9 back to Doctor Who. A whole generation fondly remember him as an ever faithful companion and best friend to Tom Baker's Doctor. I hope the new generation of viewers will fall in love with him in the same way. I'm sure he's going to prove an invaluable help to the Doctor in the fight against intergalactic evil."
Elisabeth Sladen, who'll be making her first TV appearance as Sarah Jane since 1983, is also delighted to be returning to the TARDIS. "I am so thrilled to be back and I feel so empowered by the affection that [the whole team] have for Sarah Jane Smith and for the programme.
"Toby Whithouse's script is wonderful - it's an absolutely truthful progression of Sarah. I just hope I can live up to their expectation, and I hope I can still run as fast after 30 years!"
The episode, which will be seen next spring, sees the team investigate sinister events at a modern-day comprehensive school. Buffy The Vampire Slayer's Anthony Head also stars.

So is the new series broadcast in the US yet? Is it any good?
Didn't even see it until you bumped it.Originally Posted by Thudpucker
I think it's cool, but I'm really glad Sarah-Jane's back as well. It'll be interesting seeing them interact with the new Doctor and Rose.

I'm *really* looking forward to this episode, especially aftering hearing the following massive spoiler for the episode:
In other rumors relating to the episode, one Doctor Who website has reported that Elisabeth Sladen's role in the episode was severely curtailed after she disrupted the production with primadonna behavior and diva demands. I really hope that isn't true...
That sounds awsome, I'm looking forward to the new season more than any other show right now. Even more than Battlestar Galactica, which I thought would be impossible!Originally Posted by Kensington

They even got Leeson back for voice duty... I dunno what to say... I'm speechless with approval and excitement.
I feel remarkably unburdened with the need to explain, justify or defend anything I say, feel or do online to any self-entitled anonymous snarkwit who feels I owe their point of view a form of cogent argument or debate. Life is too short to stress myself arguing with strangers over minutiae. Ya don't like it, ignore me and go read something else. -WinterRose
I remember that tin bitch.
