Hidden Away / Facts Edit

  • This magazine can be recycled: for use in newspapers and packaging – then it can regenerate into something new!
  • The Master: "I'm everywhere this week."
  • The Flood monsters breathe water not air.
  • Original plans to have water pour from the Flood monsters' heads through a helmet-like prop proved unworkable as water ran into the actors eyes. Neill Gorton devised an alternate prop where water sprays from above the lip through a series of concealed tubes.
  • For filming of TV: The Waters of Mars water was pumped from two trucks that held a total of 15,000 litres in total.
  • The idea for TV: The Waters of Mars came from the discovery by NASA in 2006 of evidence of real water on Mars.
