The Timelines of K-9

the-four-k-9s

Here are ‘The Timelines of K-9’.

N.B. The page contains four timelines of the four models of K-9 featured in ‘Doctor Who’. The K-9 Mk2 model featured in the spin-off TV series called ‘K-9’ is a continuation of the K-9 MkI model with the Fourth Doctor and Leela after ‘The Invasion of Time’ (TV).

I’ve referred to

and

to help me put these timelines of the four K-9s together.

I’ve included all the TV stories, audios; books; graphic novel/comics and the Puffin e-book ‘The Roots of Evil’ into the lists for now.

The (TV) and (Audio) stories are highlighted in BOLD and GREEN.

The (Book) stories are to remain un-highlighted for now.

The short stories are highlighted in GREEN and/or ITALICS; and are CENTRED.

Regarding the (Book) stories, I’ve identified each of them as follows in the KEY below.

KEY
*VNA – Virgin New Adventures
*VMA – Virgin Missing Adventures
*EDA – Eighth Doctor Adventures
*PDA – Past Doctor Adventures
*FYF – Find Your Fate

Regarding the (Audio) stories, I’ve identified each of them as follows in the KEY below.

KEY
**BFAD – Big Finish Audio Drama
**BFAB – Big Finish Audio Book
**PAB – Puffin Audio Book
**BVAD – BBV Audio Drama

Please feel free to ask questions about this timeline, as I intend to revisit this and add new stories to the list as time goes on.

The four timelines of K-9 are as follows.
– K-9 MkI’s Timeline

  1. Okiku Saji says:

    What about the two audio dramas “The Choice” and “The Search”, featuring Romana and K-9 Mark II while in E-Space? Made by BBV, they only had the rights to K-9 himself, and thus Romana was called “the Mistress” and E-Space was “Ecto-Space”, but it’s pretty clear who they’re talking about!

    Hi Okiku

    I must admit, I’ve never taken the BBV audios seriously to be part of the ‘Doctor Who’ continuity since the characters weren’t legally confirmed like the Mistress as Romana. So I’ve tended to ignore them.

    But for argument’s sake, I’ll make an exception and add the two BBV stories ‘The Choice’ and ‘The Search’ into K-9 MkII’s timeline for now. I’ll also add them to Romana’s timeline.

    Tim. 🙂
