Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars will air in the US on December 19, BBC America has confirmed.

Yesterday, it was announced that the special will debut in the UK on November 15.

Waters of Mars, the second of four instalments featuring David Tennant as The Doctor, also stars Lindsay Duncan as Adelaide and Peter O'Brien as Adelaide's second-in-command Ed. The plot follows The Doctor as he faces a deadly water-based threat on Mars' Bowie Base One.

The Graeme Harper-helmed episode was penned by Russell T. Davies and Phil Ford.

The US airdates for the final two Doctor Who specials are expected to be revealed in December. Tennant will leave the series at the end of the year when Matt Smith takes over the role.

Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars airs in the US on December 19 at 9pm (ET) on BBC America.
