A chilling tale,
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Ice Warriors [DVD] (DVD)
In the future the Earth has become an icy wasteland where glaciers threaten to engulf everyone. Then a mysterious man in armour is found in the ice, and when he thaws out he is revealed to be a stranded alien who revives his cronies and is soon threatening the local humans.
As a way of introducing the Ice Warriors, this works well. The story is interesting, there are strong performances from the cast and now there is a chance to see the two missing episodes. But there lies the problem. Nothing much actually happens in them, although there is character-building between two of the visiting cast (both good actors). Like a lot of six-parters, this is an episode or two over-length. It's still good sci-fi drama, but "Seeds of Death" is a much better choice if you want an old Ice Warrior story. The animation is reasonable and the usual wealth of extras make this a must for fans.
