K-9 To Feature On 'Stargazing Live'

The Doctor's trusty 51st Century robot dog will be making an appearance in 3 LIVE episodes of BBC 2's Stargazing from tomorrow! More info in this press release below:

K-9 returns to our screens this week as part of the new series of Stargazing LIVE. The Doctor’s faithful metal friend will be appearing in all three ‘Back to Earth’ shows as the new question master, posing a ‘space brainteaser’ to a number of special guests… 

Stargazing LIVE is back on BBC Two for a third three-night series from tomorrow (Tuesday, 8 January) and aims to encourage everyone – from the complete beginner to the enthusiastic amateur – to make the most of the night sky.

Professor Brian Cox (who many will recall from his cameo appearance in The Power of Three) and Dara O Briain will broadcast from the control room of the Jodrell Bank Observatory, interacting live with the audience and calling on a starry collection of the country’s finest astronomical minds to explore the wonders of the cosmos. You can find out more about the series at the BBC’s Stargazing LIVE pages.

Immediately after each episode of Stargazing LIVE, Brian Cox, Dara O Briain and their guests return for an extra half hour of chat, debate and audience participation in three shows called Back to Earth. And that’s where K-9 will be on hand to give the benefit of his experience travelling amongst the stars!

Stargazing is on tomorrow at 8:00pm on BBC 2! Clips will be published on The Gallifrey Times soon after!
