This review is from: "Doctor Who", the Ice Warriors (Dr Who Radio Collection) (Audio CD)
another audio from the BBC that presents the soundtrack from a 1960's doctor who story where some of the episodes no longer survive. In this case, the ice warriors, a 6 part story from patrick troughton's second season in the role. Episodes two and three are lost, but the other four survive and did come out on video a while ago. a dvd release is awaited.

over the course of these six twenty five minute long episodes, the doctor and his companions jamie and zoe arrive in britain in the future, which is in the grip of a new ice age. they reach a research base where a machine is being used to force the glaciers back. but with the only scientist who can operate it having quit following disagreements with the narrow minded base leader, can humanity survive? both this and the creatures that have just been unearted from the ice....

as typical with this range the sound is great and the linking narration, read by frazer hines who played jamie, fills in the gaps very well. the other cast members are very good, particularly peter barkworth who turns in a powerful performance as the base leader. and without visuals, the ice warriors voices are very scary!

the story is a couple of episodes too long, and the compelling tale of the first three gets a bit long winded in the next ones, before a slightly hasty conclusion. but this still all in all a very good tale, and this is a great way to enjoy it.

The disc also has two short interviews with frazer hines on it, talking about the story in question. they are worth a listen
