Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper’s first big scene together

To celebrate 10 years, the first decade, of New Doctor Who this week the people managing the Doctor Who Youtube channel are travelling back in time with some special videos and even some brand new artwork.

The first stop is July 2004, the day when Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper were recording their first big dialogue scene in Central London. The scene was taken from Doctor Who Confidential Series 1.

Creating Water Zombie Monsters for The Waters of Mars

As part of Doctor Who Confidential the executive producer Julie Gardner and director Graeme Harper discuss the Water Zombies from The Waters of Mars and how difficult they were to get right and not too scary.

The result? 😀 Watch the escape from the Water Zombies…

The date is 21 November 2059, and The Doctor is on Bowie Base One, the first human outpost on Mars. Base commander Adelaide Brooke discovers some of her crew have been infected with a mysterious life form which takes over the host body and causes it to gush copious amounts of water. The Doctor and Adelaid flee two water zombies on sonic enhanced Gadget, previously operated by Roman Groom from the central dome. Andy and Tarak, still infected, chase the Doctor, Adelaide and Gadget back to the central dome, but are unable to pursue them any further due to the hardinger seals in the central dome airlocks and are contained in the base’s “bio-sphere” section while Maggie is secured in the medical wing. The Doctor, however, is worried about the doors and whether they can protect them from creatures with such power, making a chilling statement, “Water is patient, Adelaide, water just waits. It wears down the clifftops, the mountains, the whole of the world. Water always wins!”

How John Barrowman found out he was the Face of Boe

I think I will always remember the scene where captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) told the Doctor and Martha about the time he was modeling and he was called Face of Boe… I was laughing for minutes… I don’t know exactly how many, but they were enough to make the moment a great memory.

In the description of the video on youtube it is written that it is an unseen Doctor Who Confidential footage, and this was actually Torchwood Declassified but it belongs on Dr Who Confidential.
