John Leeson Back for K9 Film

K9 Timequake casting news _ John Leeson is back!

We are delighted to announce our first piece of casting for the forthcoming film, K9: TimeQuake.

We can confirm that the much loved metallic hound will once again be voiced by John Leeson.

John was responsible for voicing K9 between 1977-78, 1980-83, 2006-2011 and also starred in the 2010 Australian tv series.

We look forward to reuniting K9 with his voice as they star in this exciting SCI-FI/Fantasy epic adventure story!

    The original voice with the original K9.
    Anything less is an unwelcome distraction and can’t be taken seriously.

    Good news for us all that John Leeson is still doing the voice for K-9 – Can’t wait to see what Omega will look like

    I met Mr Leeson last year, on a train to Plymouth. He was a delight to chat to. I’m pleased that he will be lending his voice again to K-9.

    This is the most welcome Dr Who related news in weeks. Ahem ….

    • Classic Who now even more better than New Who

      John Leeson is a legend. One of the real stars of classic WHO.

      Probably K9 mark 5.2 or some thing

    That’ll never be K9 for me, don’t know why they can’t just leave things alone

    • booboo

      July 19th, 2017 - 2:51pm

      because they cant use the one in Doctor Who which has been said many times

    • Kane

      July 19th, 2017 - 2:56pm

      That’s fair enough, tbh I didn’t like when they brought out the K9 tv series with this updated version, hell never truly be K9

    • booboo

      one of the many K9’s regenerated into something more update for a new audience

      not sure how they will play the film but wait and see
