"The power packs began to hum ominously. Ice began to fall away from the Warriors' helmets. The cruel eye-pieces began to flicker with light, and the great gauntleted hands twitched into life. Looming over Victoria, the creatures inside the ice strove to break out - almost like dragon-men from monstrous frozen eggs, she thought. Frightened yet fascinated, she looked on as, slowly but surely, the Ice Warriors returned to life..." - from Doctor Who and The Ice Warriors novelised by Brian Hayles.
So they're back! After nearly 40 years, the mighty reptillian Martians have returned to Doctor Who, looking - I think - better than ever.
The Ice Warriors are one of my favourite monsters and I desperately wanted to do something with the new Ice Warrior design, and thought I may as well go back and revisit their very first appearance in the programme in 1967 (and yes, this image is based on the book cover for the Target novelisation to an extent).
