    Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars

    Doctor Who is a British sci fi television series that was produced by the British Broadcasting Company (BBC). Doctor Who is the longest running sci fi television series in the world according to the Guiness Book of World Records. The television series originally ran from 1963 to 1989. Television films were produced in 1996 and 2005. The series began again in 2005 with The Doctor being played by David Tennant. There have been eleven actors playing The Doctor since its beginning. Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars stars David Tennant, the tenth Doctor. There were four specials that finished up David Tennant's final season on the show. Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars is the second of these four shows.

    The Doctor is a Time Lord, an extraterrestrial race that travels through time protecting the earth and has the ability to change time. He travels through time in a blue police box (remember this is a British series). In Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars, The Doctor lands on the planet Mars near Bowie Base in 2059. He meets Dr. Adelaide Brooks, the captain of Mars' Bowie Base, played by Lindsay Duncan (Alice in Wonderland, 2010). The base's members are all amazed to find another human on Mars and cannot figure out where he came from. The Doctor lets slip that he knows who all of the members of Bowie Base are and rattles off their names and rank. This makes them even more suspicious and interested in knowing who he is and how he knows them and makes the viewer aware that something pivotal is going to happen that involves Bowie Base.

    In the middle of this, one of the base's members becomes infected with an unknown disease and kills another member. Bowie Base is threatened by the infected members who return to life as menacing creatures intent on getting to earth to spread their sickness there as well. Throughout this, The Doctor is tempted to interfere in this struggle and save the base's members which he knows he should not do because it risks changing the future drastically.

    Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars is a fast-paced sci fi thriller that is a must watch for any Doctor Who fan. It has fantastic special effects and the suspense will keep even non-fans on the edge of their seat as they wait to see what happens next. This is David Tenant's last season as the 10th Time Lord which makes this a must have for Doctor Who collectors. The DVD contains a bonus feature, Doctor Who Confidential and is 62 minutes in length. It originally premiered on December 19 on BBC America.
