Ice Warriors

The Ice Warriors, under used villians in my opinion, have only been seen in 4 classic Doctor Who stories, their first appearance in the Ice Warriors in 1967, The Seeds of Death in 1969, The Curse of Peladon in 1972 and finally in The Monster of Peladon in 1974.

They remain one of the small number of monsters that people remember from the classic series such as the Sea Devils, Zygons along with the now revived Autons, Daleks and Cybermen.

The Ice Warriors originally came from Mars, and are basically repitillian, with cybernetic armoured carapaces. As the Doctor comments in the clip below, “they are a savage and war like race.” It would be nice to see them revived once more in the new series with a 21st century make over.

Below is a montage clip taken from all stories.

The Seeds of Death is available to buy on DVD.
