Doctor Who is returning to BBC One on Sunday 15th November 2009 for The Waters Of Mars – the second of four specials airing throughout 2009.
Starring David Tennant as the Doctor and guest starring British actress Lindsay Duncan – best known for her roles in Margaret (Thatcher), and Lost In Austen – The Waters Of Mars is set to be one of the most terrifying episodes of the series to date.

Neighbours, Flying Doctors and Casualty star Peter O'Brien also guest stars as Ed, Adelaide's second-in-command at the base.
