Synopsis

Don't drink the water. Don't even touch it. Not one drop...

Lindsay Duncan joins the Doctor as his sharpest and most strong-minded companion yet for the first of three final Doctor Who specials.

The Waters of Mars is a dark, scary thriller that sees the Doctor land on the planet Mars, at a base in peril. A creeping infection beneath the Martian surface threatens not only the human race but also the Doctor's most fundamental beliefs.

Together with Adelaide Brooke - the base's commander, played by Lindsay Duncan - the Doctor must defeat a seemingly unstoppable menace before it can reach Earth and wipe out mankind.

The Doctor must fight not only the water but destiny itself. While also confronting his own existence, when the prophecy about his future begins to resonate.

Is his song about to come to an end?
