Mia Bennett (born 2032) was the geologist at Bowie Base One on Mars from July 2058 to November 2059.

Biography Edit

Mia was born in Houston, Texas, and her father was an astronaut. She was fascinated by his work. After graduating from Stanford University, she followed him into his research in planetary geology. Working with with her father and using soil samples from Mars, she proved that Earth plant life could grow on Martian soil with the help of chemicals. This was a major breakthrough in Mars colonisation. Her research dovetailed with Andy Stone's and the two worked together.

She travelled to Mars in 2058. After seventeen months, one of the crew, Stone, was infected by the Flood. The Tenth Doctor arrived at the same time. Mia witnessed six of her fellow crew members be infected by the Flood. The Doctor knew her death was a fixed point in time, but he saved her and two other members of her crew. He took her back to Earth in 2059, where she ran off in shock, followed by Yuri Kerenski. (TV: The Waters of Mars)

Behind the scenes Edit

  • The details of her pre-Bowie Base career can be seen briefly in her obituary.
  • Despite the obituary stating she was American, the character speaks with an English accent.
  • A deleted scene reveals that Yuri and she were in a secret relationship until the Doctor exposed it, as Adelaide wouldn't allow romantic relationships among the crew. However, it was shown the entire crew actually knew, including Adelaide, who chose to ignore it until the Doctor exposed it. This forced Adelaide to take steps to separate them.
