This section is way too quiet. So, to get a bit of life into it I ask this...

What do you think of the redesign of K-9, used in the Australian series?

I don't watch the show. The only one of the Whoniverse shows I don't watch. The redesigned dog is a big reason why  Undecided

I understand why they did the redesign. From what I know, there is no mention of Doctor Who in the new series, so from an Australian audience POV, they may not know there is any connection and so a retro 70's looking prop would look really random in a new show.

From a Doctor Who fans POV though I can understand why the design is hated. Personally the retro look is what I love about K9 and I think the redesign makes him look a bit too futuristic and silly. I havent watched the show, but I have seen a clip, and it just doesnt look right.

Which is ironic considering K9 was created in the future  Cheesy

One of the main reasons I'm not tuning in is that I've seen quite a few children shows being farmed out to Australia to film in recent years.  It's cheaper and carries less risk, apparently.  Personally I think that most of them have failed to achieve what they would have been able to. 

Lots gets changed, for budget reasons mainly, and the writer isn't able to have a say in how these changes effect the overall feel of their show.  Everything from actors to production is taken out of their hands and I know a few that are very unhappy with the results and don't even want the finished product holding their name.

The redesign is goddamn awful too Tongue

The new design is a total and utter travesty. Though we may not have to see too much of it as I heard they are struggling to get a second series.

I would be quite happy to see the end of this if the rumours are true. The redesign is shockingly bad
