Doctor Who Specials: Waters Of Mars
Doctor Who - Waters Of Mars
Doctor Who - The Waters Of Mars
Doctor who is one of them TV shows that really seem to out do themselves, especially the recent series with some solid drama that builds around the doctors universe and all that happens to a time lord like the deaths that are part and parcel of this long running TV series.
This time the doctor finds himself alone again, on Mars arriving in his Tardis on the red planet where he soon discovers that the events are centred around an important timeline that must happen no matter what, and these fixed points in time must occur for the future of the human race to thrive throughout space in the future.
But things don't go quite smoothly for the doctor in David Tennants last story arc as the doctor, which will lead into The End Of Time featuring the Master, which will, eventually after that 2 part special, kill off the current doctor and he will regenerate into the 11th doctor that Matt Smith will take over the role in 2010.
This special doctor who story was well worth the wait and it provided a good shift for the 10th doctor as he has always played by the rules of the time lords, who he supposedly is the last of that race of supreme beings and masters of time(But the master is alive and so I think there must be more time lords!!?) In this story the doctor feels he cannot intervene in the events as he works out that they are important, but the story twists and turns and he makes a decision that will ultimately lead to his undoing and that's the dramatic part of the story that we all know is coming.
I liked how when this episode of doctor who finished, my son then said, "I'm not going to drink water again!!" and that pretty much sums up the special with an alien race of water creatures that we interestingly see a nod to earlier episodes of doctor who with possible release of the ice warriors near the end, only time will tell I suppose!
This special was great and it set things up at the end of the closing scenes with the doctor realising his arrogance of him being the last of the time lords and he cannot possibly hold all the power of the time lords and alter history to his will, truly exciting to see the conclusion of David Tennants 10th Doctor.
Can't wait for the 2 part End Of Time At Christmas!
