Cover blurb:
K9 follows the adventures of three teenagers — Starkey, a young rebel genius who's lost his parents in mysterious circumstances, not to mention his own way in society; Jorjie, a very capable fighting dynamo in the deceptively cute frame of a privileged-schoolgirl from the upper echelons of society; and Darius, a sneaky and cunning delivery boy who knows the city like the back of his light-fingered little hand — and, of course, K9, a cybernetic wonder — a robotic dog built of mysterious alien technology and pulled through time and space to arrive on planet Earth. Together, K9 and his trio of teen companions investigate and engage all manner of mystery and menaces from beyond the stars, between dimensions or the dark and ancient places of the earth, and they try to fix the rips in time-space that are manifesting about the city and around the globe.

Cover blurb:
TVs Most loved Robot dog K9 blasts back into action via a Space Time Manipulator and arrives in the late 21st Century in London.

K9 is a cybernetic construct from the 50th Century and has the appearance of an Earthling dog both in shape and size. He arrives at the home of Professor Gryffen, a renowned cybernetics and temporal dynamics expert who is working on the Alien Space-Time-Manipulator (STM) which opens a portal to anywhere in space and time. K9 is following a group of rogue Aliens, Jixen Warriors who attack Gryffen and a couple of teenagers; Starkey a homeless rebel and Jorjie, a very capable intelligent young girl.

To save them K9 sacrifices himself and explodes, soon followed by his regeneration thanks to a strange alien device implanted in his mainframe. The new look K9 can now hover and fly and has more capabilities than ever before. K9 loses his long term memory and begins a quest to not only protect humanity but to discover more about his time and Space travelling past.

Cover blurb:
Originally created for the 1977 Doctor Who episode 'The Invisible Enemy' by Bob Baker and Dave Martin, K9 has long been an iconic television character. But now K9 stars in his own brand-new television series!

Blasting back into action via a space time manipulator, everyone's favorite robot dog arrives in late 21st-century London, now scarred by alien intrusion and government rule through their cybernetic police force.

With the assistance of teenagers Jorjie, Darius, drifter Starkey and Professor Gryffen, K9 becomes Earth's front-line defence against dangers threatening from any place — and anytime — in the galaxy! They will have a lot of fun, action, adventure, and some jolts along the way, saving the earth from alien creatures, scary monsters and more than a few nasty humans!

Mixing live-action characters with stunning visual-effects, K9 is a children's sci-fi/adventure series combining comedy, action and suspense. Imagine a mash-up of X Files and Men in Black with a zany dash of Ghostbusters and then add one magnificent metallic mutt, and there you have K9!
