There are many strange costumes and puppets on Doctor Who that are supposed to be aliens, monsters, and robots. Most of them are pretty cheesy and slightly irritating. The most irksome of all these characters is the robot dog: K-9. I just hate that thing. I don’t know if it’s his voice, the satellite ears, or that suction cup nose-thing, but I can’t stand the dog.
I think I might have some childhood trauma to blame for my hatred of the remote-control puppet. I have a vague memory of my mother saying “affirmative” in that annoying robotic voice when I was a child.
