I have been a big fan of Doctor Who since it’s revival in 2005 but was too young to have watched the original series. On this blog I shall be recording my thoughts on every story from 1963 onwards!
25: The Ice Warriors
Format: 6 episodes, each 25 minutes long
Story: The Doctor, Jamie and Victoria arrive on Earth in the far future to find that the planet is in the grip of a second ice age. Scientific outposts are scattered across the globe, fighting desperately against advancing glaciers that threaten to send the world back into prehistory. In one outpost the ice warriors’s ship is stuck inside the glacier and it’s a race against time to stop both the glacier and the ice warriors.
What I liked:
What I disliked:
Overall thoughts:This could almost have been a New Who story. Excellently written and acted with brilliant ideas about the possible future of the Earth. The Ice Warriors are properly sinister aliens and the Doctor was his usual brilliant self. Loved every minute of it.
Next Time: I’m skipping a few of the largely incomplete stories but next I shall be watching The Web of Fear: yetis in the underground!
