K9December 25 at 10am/9c

Get ready for a Christmas gift like no other. On Tuesday, December 25 - Christmas Day - Syfy will be airing an all-day marathon (and the U.S. premiere) of the Doctor Who spinoff, K9.

K9 follows the adventures of the robotic canine created by British writers Bob Baker and Dave Martin and first seen in the original 1978 season of Doctor Who. The show mixes live action with stunning CGI and special effects and pits the robot dog K9 and his teenage friends against a number of human and alien adversaries. The new dog is voiced by the legendary John Leeson, who voiced the original K9 from the 1978 Doctor Who series.

Creator Bob Baker has won a number of BAFTAs for his co-writing of the hugely successful Wallace and Gromit shorts and feature, and together with his business partner Paul Tams, was closely involved in the creation of the new K9 series.

All 26 episodes will air on December 25 starting at 10 am ET.
