"Planet of the Dead" sends the Doctor and passengers on a London bus through a wormhole. To escape the planet, which has been turned into a desert by aliens, the Doctor needs the help of all the passengers. Back on Earth, Unit is working to save them and close the wormhole before the aliens get through. In "The Waters of Mars," the Doctor lands near the first Martian base. He finds out what the history books never knew, why the base disappeared. To help save them from the virus attacking the base, the Doctor risks changing history.
