Doctor Who The Waters of Mars Synopsis

The BBC Press Office have now released synopses for several dramas that will be broadcast on BBC channels across the coming weeks. Included on the website is the official synopsis for The Waters of Mars, the second Doctor Who special which will be aired at some point next month. The synopsis for the upcoming special Doctor Who episode can be read below:

Mars, 2059. Bowie Base One. Last recorded message: "Don't drink the water. Don't even touch it. Not one drop."

Starring David Tennant as The Doctor and guest starring acclaimed British stage and screen actress Lindsay Duncan, The Waters Of Mars is the second Doctor Who special to be screened this year. Lindsay plays Adelaide – the Doctor's cleverest and most strong-minded companion. She and the Doctor face terror on the Red Planet in one of the scariest adventures yet.

Neighbours, Flying Doctors and Casualty star Peter O'Brien also guest stars as Ed, Adelaide's second-in-command at the base. The Waters Of Mars is written by Russell T Davies and Phil Ford and is directed by Graeme Harper.

Alternatively, the synopsis can be read by clicking here at the official BBC Press Office website. The Waters of Mars stars David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor and Lindsay Duncan as his one-off companion, Adelaide, and will be aired on BBC One and on the BBC HD channel this November. Are you looking forward to this?
