I think the weeping angels are one of the best of the new series , and tbh I'm glad Daleks and Cyberman won't be in because personally think there milking them and they are getting a tadge repetative and boring imo and would be nice to either bring back some other old enemies for a change or created some new ones altogether .

Agree, was getting think of the daleks and cybermen they used to be something special but they just became overused and stale.

I thought the Cybermen had become scary again thanks to the Capaldi era going back to their origins.

From the Cybermen being created out of human corpses in Dark Water to the fairly horrific Cyber hospital in World Enough and Time, to me they got their fear factor back after Moffat initially used them as canon fodder in earlier stories.

Ho hum!

"K9 - UPDATE NEWS

We are excited to at last now be able to tell you that there is a major project in the pipeline to bring K9 back as the standalone hero that he deserves to be.

We have entered into a partnership with a major US/UK company and are currently now developing a new multi Million Dollar series/s which will establish the K9 "brand" prior to the release of the feature film.

A K9 film would have been a one off, but with now having a new series to investigate, (which will be set in Space akin to Guardians of The Galaxy etc) we will be establishing our own universe on a much grander scale than we could do before.

OMEGA will still play a part and we haven't dismissed the ideas of other characters such as The Axons, however we are very keen to establish new adversaries and alien creatures for K9 and his new associates to face.

The project will look to appeal to both new and old audiences and there will be more news in early 2019 so watch out on our social media.

Bob and Paul would like to thank #K9fans for their patience while the original plans developed into this far bigger opportunity. K9 will be back with you soon!"
