I'd heard they were due to return in the next half-series of Doctor Who, those slithering Martians with a Klingon code of honor, the Ice Warriors, and the production team has just released their redesign to SFX magazine!
The Ice Warriors appeared in four classic stories - The Ice Warriors, The Seeds of Death, The Curse of Peladon and The Monster of Peladon - facing off against the second and third Doctors, although in the third listed story, they were the good guys. Don't paint all Martians with the same brush kids! I suppose the return of classic Who's fourth biggest monster (behind the Daleks, Cybermen and Sontarans) is part of the 50th anniversary celebrations, but it's been too long coming in my opinion. Perhaps they were afraid people would roll their eyes at the Ice Warriors' origin planet. It IS rather quaint and dated.
But what do YOU think of the new Ice Warrior look?
