'Wet' Your Appetite for The Waters of Mars
Amidst the unraveling of the Doctor Who spin-off, Torchwood: Children of Earth, the BBC has released more information on the upcoming Doctor Who special, The Waters of Mars.
The BBC Press Office has released information on their Autumn 2009 line up on BBC One, including Doctor Who - The Waters of Mars:
David Tennant returns as The Doctor in The Waters Of Mars, the second of four Doctor Who specials being screened on BBC One this year. He is joined by his cleverest and most strong-minded companion yet, Adelaide, played by acclaimed British actress Lindsay Duncan.
Adelaide is head of the Mars Base and doesn't take kindly to an uninvited appearance by The Doctor. Peter O'Brien, star of Neighbours, Flying Doctors and Casualty, also guest stars as Ed, Adelaide's second in command.
The Waters Of Mars is written by Russell T Davies and Phil Ford and is directed by Graeme Harper.
There is also a preview clip taken from the special that can be seen in the official Doctor Who website, although it is restricted to only the UK unfortunately. Here's a peak at it below (this could be removed from YouTube, so catch it while you can):
