The Waters of Mars

Canadian Doctor Who fans will be glad to know they can catch The Waters of Mars on the SPACE channel on Saturday, 19th December at 9pm ET!

Canada joins Australia and the USA in getting early airdates for the next Doctor Who adventure, and broadcast of the Tenth Doctor’s penultimate adventure (his final outing being a two parter over Christmas and New Year) will be preceded by a repeat of Easter special Planet of the Dead which co-starred former EastEnders and Bionic Woman star Michelle Ryan.

The Waters of Mars meanwhile co-stars Lindsay Duncan as Commander Adelaide and Peter O’Brien as base second in command Ed.

Viewers in Canada will therefore get an opportunity too compare two very different stories – I wonder which will be more popular, the self-indulgent fluff of Planet of the Dead or the dark, water-zombie infested Water of Mars?
