The Return of the Ice Warriors

Last Saturday, marked the return of the Ice Warriors to Doctor Who after a twenty nine year absence from the program. The former inhabitants of Mars last appeared on Doctor Who in the Jon Pertwee story. The Monster of Paledon. The fact that they haven’t appeared in the program in such a long time means that they are new to most of the viewers of today. They were mostly a part of the Patrick Troughton. Nomads who had left their home planet of Mars centuries ago. During the Troughton era they were enemies of the Doctor trying to conquer other race. During the Pertwee era they allied with other worlds for the betterment of the universe. It will be interesting to see if the show’s production team brings the Ice Warriors back again, and what direction the team will take them.
