DOCTOR WHO: THE WATERS OF MARS
(UK, 2009) 62 minutes
The 10th Doctor arrives on Mars in the year 2059 and joins the first human Earth colony led by Adelaide Brooke. The day he arrives is also the day history records the entire settlement destroyed in an unknown cataclysm with all members of the settlement being killed. Everyone soon realizes that colonists are being infected by some unknown agent and are being transformed into zombie-like creatures. For reasons that are eventually explained, The Doctor is not prepared to save them and tells Brooke that she has to die.
DOCTOR WHO: COLD WAR
(UK, 2013) 44 minutes
The 11th Doctor and Clara find themselves dealing with Cold War tensions when the TARDIS lands aboard a disabled Soviet ballistic submarine. The Doctor isn't the only alien being on board however - while engaged in undersea drilling, Professor Grisenko thought he'd found a mammoth and brought the creature on the boat encased in ice. It isn't a mammoth but an Ice Warrior, who has been lying dormant for 5000 years. He identifies himself as Grand Marshal Skaldak but when he cannot contact others of his kind, he assumes he is the last of his race. He now has every intention of starting a thermonuclear war between the superpowers and destroy Earth.
DOCTOR WHO: THE EMPRESS OF MARS
(USA, 2017) 43 minutes
The 12th Doctor, Bill, and Nardole arrive on Mars on the year 1881 by some cryptic messages uncovered by NASA; where they discover Victorian soldiers were brought there and now are colonizing the red planet for the glory of the British Empire. But suddenly they find the tomb of the queen of an alien race known as the Ice Warriors, that are native of Mars. When the queen is awoken from her cryogenic sleep, the TARDIS team is caught in the middle of a war between Humans and Ice Warriors, but as the humans are now the invaders this time around, in which side will The Doctor stand?
