The BBC have recently confirmed that Doctor Who Confidential will return next Sunday with Is There Life on Mars?, going behind the scenes of The Waters of Mars, on BBC Three after The Waters of Mars on BBC One. The Waters of Mars makes Phil Ford the second writer, with Russell T Davies being the first, to have contributed to Doctor Who, Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures over the past couple of years.
David Tennant is joined in The Waters of Mars by Lindsay Duncan as one-off companion Adelaide, leader of Bowie Base One on Mars, for the Tenth Doctor’s penultimate story. After The Waters of Mars, the Tenth Doctor returns for his final two episodes, both written by Russell T Davies, sometime around the Christmas period on BBC One and BBC HD.
The Is There Life on Mars? synopsis.
Behind-the-scenes look at Doctor Who. It is the beginning of the end for David Tennant's Doctor, and Confidential is on a mission to Mars to capture the strange goings on in Bowie base one. The programme goes behind the mask of the monsters as the waters rise, causing the production team all sorts of problems. There are explosions, robots and gallons of water as the Doctor meets one of his heroes and battles against his greatest ever foe - time itself.
The Tenth Doctor recently returned to the Doctor Who universe for The Sarah Jane Adventures story The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith, written by Gareth Roberts, broadcast in October on BBC One. The Waters of Mars will be dedicated to the late Barry Letts, the producer of Doctor Who throughout the Jon Pertwee era of the early 1970s, who passed away early October.
