Doctor Who's Robot Dog Is Getting His Own Movie
The Time Lord's beloved robot dog, K-9, turns 40 years old in 2017, and in honor of that occasion, character creator Bob Baker will bring the "canine" to the big screen. An animated feature film called K9: Timequake is coming to theaters that focuses on the robot pet, and sees him facing off against classic Doctor Who villain Omega in a space travel adventure.

K-9 served as a companion to the Doctor in the 70's serials, and then reappeared in the revived series in 2006. He was also the star of his ownTV series in 2009, in which he underwent Time Lord-esque "regenerations," coming out a more sophisticated and futuristic version of himself. 

So although we may never see a bonafide Doctor Who movie, we can soon see a feature film that seems to fit into the Doctor Who universe. Although previous efforts by Baker have been severed from Doctor Who as a result of rights issues, the fact that Omega will appear indicates that the movie will be connected to the series.

Here's the description of the film, courtesy of Doctor Who News:
