Tasmanian Sci-Fi Convention 2009

This weekend I am planning on attending the Tasmanian Sci-Fi convention held at the Wrest Point Casino. I am looking forward to it as I will be able to meet some prop builders there that I have only spoken to on forums on the net for a while. I am sure to learn something and see some great builds :)

More distractions...

As you can probably tell from the few posts that my attention has been taken else where... I have been tinkering on K-9 at least once a week, but not enough to show a great deal. There are bits and pieces done and he is coming along. Once I do more I will post a photographic journal of how I got the body together. It will make more sense to post it in one go rather than having little dregs now and then.

And so what is my distraction?

Getting a motorcycle license. :)

I have a blog on that too!

Here is a picture of my bike with its brand new "L" plate!

In the News: K9 Back For Sarah Jane Series Three

From SFX Magazine... Fantastic news!
Thursday February 05, 2009

Sarah Jane Adventures producer Nikki has told Doctor Who magazine that K9 will be back in a big way in the third series of the spin-off show: "We've already got 10 scripts at first draft stage, and I can now announce that K9 is going to make a return to Sarah Jane's attic! He's been locked away in that safe, saving the world from a Black Hole, for far too long now. I can promise that the fun is only just beginning - just wait till he gets to meet Mr Smith properly." He is due to appear in around half of the 12 episodes.

Quite what all this means for the Australian K9 series currently in production is not clear, though clearly the rights situation does allow for K9 to be used in both production. Surely the BBC isn't worried enough to adopt spoiling tactics?

K9 Series Producer Speaks

Above: K9 - due for a regeneration

Paul Tams, the co-creator and associate producer on the K9 series that is being filmed in Australia has spoken to The Doctor Who News Page (aka, Outpost Gallifrey) about how the show is progressing. Apparently there will be 26 half hour episodes and K9 will be achieved both as an practical animatronic prop and using CGI. Tams also promises, "I've made sure that hidden in most episodes fans will spot some nod to the past - either a mention or a visual treat." And, much to everyone's relief, he says that the new look K9 will not look like the cartoony concept art that's been seen doing the rounds on the net. The show should be ready to air in Australia later this year.
