Liam and Rob join Pete and Chris from PULL TO OPEN podcast to discuss The Waters of Mars!
When the Doctor travels to the past he obviously has a great deal of foreknowledge about what’s taken place and, moreover, what must take place in order for history as we know it to be preserved. It’s refreshing, then, to see that same idea applied to future history in The Waters of Mars, a thrilling story that uses that device to amplify its impact by an order of magnitude above your typical base-under-siege adventure. When you add a healthy helping of zombie horror and a dark twist at the end, the result is one of the most adult Doctor Who episodes ever made — one that might even be considered a modern classic. Best put in a silly robot then.
