Everyone needs a trusty companion when they travel through time and space, so why not have your very own K-9? The robot dog from Doctor Who can now easily tag along in your adventures thanks to a smartphone-operated toy.

The desktop K-9 comes with moving ears, a light-up keypad, and other interactive features. It can be controlled using an app available for iOS and Android.

The full product description on states: “Complete with moving ears, light up eyes and extending nose probe, our faithful K-9 is at your service. Just use the app on your IOS or Android device to control the Doctor Who K-9. The power is now in the palm of your hands and with the bluetooth controlled K-9 at your side, you’ll be safe in your travels.”

Owning this K-9, however, doesn’t come cheap. On and, the toy sells for about £70, which is a little over $100. 

For any Whovian, though, this adorable K-9 is at least worth checking out.
