The filming began on a city street which the crew had previously covered with artificial snow. Also seen on the set was a small robot with the word "GADGET" inscribed into it, and Ood Sigma from the episode "The Planet of the Ood".
A 30 second Teaser Trailer was shown after "Planet of the Dead" showing Adelaide pointing pointing a futuristic gun at the doctor ordering him to state his name and intention, to which he simply replied "Water always wins". Then on July 9, 2009 another short clip was shown online showing Adelaide trying to reason with an alien, it also showed that this creature can turn others into mutants like itself.
