Today’s Wales on Sunday newspaper features the second exclusive A3 poster from the Doctor Who Special, The Waters of Mars by Phil Ford and Russell T Davies, which is the second out of six posters from The Western Mail. The Doctor Who Special will be broadcast tonight on BBC One and BBC HD at 7pm followed by Doctor Who Confidential, Is There Life on Mars, over on BBC Three right after.
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 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.
