We are in a plane

Magnet #229 - Doctor Who's K-9

My sister and her friend are winging their way to the UK today for her meticulously planned Great, Great Britain Tour.

The overall theme is Jane Austen, with a splash of Doctor Who, Beatles and Spooks. Stops include London, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Bath, and Cardiff. Stalking dates include Richard Armitage, Rupert Penry-Jones, and David Tennant. In that order. Yep, with my luck, she'll probably end up sitting next to Clive Owen on the train or something.

Anyway, since she does a great K-9 impression, this DW magnet is apropos, methinks. Apparently, K-9 is much-loved in Doctor Who lore - I mean, who doesn't love a mechanical dog with a weird Dalek-esque plungey thing on his nose, and rabbit-ear ears, and no legs?

He's just a silly tin dog, but he's supercute. You can see K-9 in action with the Cybermen here.
Pin It!
