The Wafers Of Mars

With the T and the F being so near on a keyboard, it’s all too easy to accidentally type "Wafers Of Mars” (we know, we've done it). Which got us thinking – what other Doctor Who episode titles are just one typo away from being another kind of story entirely?

(And don’t forget, there’s SFX’s non-spoilery preview of "The Waters Of Mars” here )
