Search for the Doctor is a Seven House adventure book written by Dave Martin and based on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. It features the Sixth Doctor and K-9


The year is 2056, and the Doctor is trapped in toroidal stasis by arch enemy Omega. But help is at hand from the Doctor's old friends Drax and K9 - and you! Now open the covers and join the Doctor in an adventure through Time and Space ...


  • This story takes place in the mid-21st Century and at the time it was published it was assumed that it featured the K-9 model that was featured in K-9 and Company and The Five Doctors. However, the events of the 2006 episode "School Reunion", in which that version of K-9 was destroyed, suggest that the version of K-9 encountered by the Doctor is actually K-9 Mark IV, the model featured in The Sarah Jane Adventures, although as far as the Sixth Doctor is concerned, it is the same one he gave Sarah Jane initially.
  • Drax, who was first featured in The Armageddon Factor, returns.
  • The story is the latest in chronology in which Omega appears.
