New Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars Trailer (YouTube)

Administrator - Posted on 26 July 2009

As just reported, the BBC has made a new trailer for Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars available for the UK only. For everyone else, there's YouTube (watch it while you can): 

If for some reason it is removed from YouTube, here is the BBC America version of the promo trailer as well:

but WATERED DOWN OF MARS looks awful. Totally awful. "I don't hear anyone knocking, do you?"  Fixed moments in time. What baloney.

I'm really not sure why you watch this show Chase, suspending disbelief for the sake of enjoying the story has always been a part of it.  I agree with Louis, it looks good from the little we see in the trailer.

Looks to be an exciting episode... err.. special. Best of all, no flying buses! Laughing
(At least that we can see so far anyway.)

With all that water, be sure to take care of mother nature before watching this one. Wink

I am looking forward to seeing it.

Personally, I think it looks great!

The trailer at the end of Planet of the Dead did nothing for me.  However, now I'm actually looking forward to it.  It looks a lot scarier than most new series stories.  Hopefully it won't disappoint.

the knocking right at the end of the trailer! Many thanks to everyone providing this news, I am very grateful, :-) This steps up the intensity for me, perhaps not for others, but definately more intense than the previous trailer for this...Bring it on!

So many times the BBC has websites take videoclips from websites and if they make YouTube take it down - it can also be found on the Digital spy website at this link:


That assuming it's not taken off there as well.

 Is the male actor with the flashlight (torch) the actor who played Mr. Grantham , the arcade owner in The Sarah jane Adventures The Warriors of Kudlak?

I don't know for definite but, wikipedia has him listed as a guest for the story. Here is the list of guest stars they have listed:

Peter O'Brien - Ed

Chook Sibtain - TBA

Alan Ruscoe - Andy Stone

Sharon Duncan Brewster - TBA

Aleksander Mikic - TBA

Gemma Chan - Mia Bennett

Cosima Shaw - Steffie Ehrlich

Michael Goldsmith - TBA

and of course we have Lindsay Duncan as Adelaide.

As you can from the list we have the names of the actors but have very little information about the parts they are playing.

Since Chook Sibtain is the actor who played Mark Grantham in "Sarah Jane Adventures" it is very likely that it is the same person.


Please note that this list is not official and many changes may be made before the airing the specials. Also some of the charater names comes from the TARDIS Index File which is a special wiki section that focuses on "Doctor Who"

Thanks for the info! I didn't relize that Peter O'Brian was in it. I used to watch him on an Aussie sci-fi show called Spellbinder
