While a dedicated team of scientists battle to hold the approaching glaciers at bay, a startling discovery is made deep within the ice… an alien warrior, frozen for millennia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Troughton at his Best November 16, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This video is a must own for anyone who has ever pined away for the lost episodes of Doctor Who. It satisfies the hunger of die-hard Troughton fans and is a perfect example of the stories, characters and quality acting of this period in Who. If you have little experience with Troughton's genius portrayal of the Doctor, the "Ice Warriors" shows him at the top of his game.
The story is told in the typical Who acts ... the Doctor and crew are mistaken as trouble makers ... then they are befriended ... then they truly are part of the trouble. It includes the characteristic Who "companions and Doctor are captured and then escape" moments and the obligitory "...oh yeah, there are only 5 minutes left, so let's defeat the bad guy" endings. But the ideas, performances and costumes lift this production up.
The ideas of Man vs. Machine and man's dependence on machine are well played out. Supporting characters like Leader Clent are well fleshed out and undergo good development as the story prgresses. Troughton exudes mystery at all times; unlike Hartnell, who usually was trapped and had to fight his way back to the TARDIS, Troughton's Doctor could leave at any time. He stays because he delights in trouble and adventure.
Also, the scene where Victoria is trying to escape through the ice caves while persued by an Ice Warrior is creepy and suspenseful.
The reconstruction of episodes 2 and 3 are marvellous ... and the included CD of missing audio is a treat to listen to. The story does not lose at all by the loss of these episodes.
I was taken by surprise by this one. It is a glimpse at the greatness of the "Monster Seasons."

5.0 out of 5 stars DVD Extras and Animated Episodes! April 18, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We are looking out on a world of ice. An eerie voice is singing - or is it calling? The very beginning of "The Ice Warriors" sets a mysterious tone that reminds me of the underrated classic, "The Abominable Snowman" (1957 with Peter Cushing).

We go inside to a strange console room. Over the loudspeaker, we hear, "Prepare Phase 1 evacuation procedure." Leader Clent comes in bristling, "We certainly will not evacuate. We've beaten its tantrums before."

"It" is the ionizer, and Miss Garrett, worrying around her controls, tells Clent, "Within 2 hours, the ionizer will be useless." She mentions more than once that they need Penley, Penley and his expertise.

But maybe they can make do with someone else. The TARDIS lands, sideways and slipping on the snow. The Doctor, Victoria and Jamie are taken to the Leader. Clent offers the Doctor a test. Answer a question, and they can stay. If not, they are obviously scavengers instead of scientists, and the three of them will be sent to the African Rehabilitation Center.

Clent: "All the major continents are threatened with destruction under the glaciers' (glass-ee-ahrs, I love British pronunciation) of the second Ice Age. How would you halt the ice surge and turn the climate back to normal? 45 seconds, starting now."

The Doctor, anxious, paces while he answers, "Possible causes - the reverse of the magnetic field!"
Leader: "No such change has occurred."
Doctor: "Ahh, interstellar clouds obscuring the sun's rays? An excessive burst of sun spot activity? A severe shift of the Earth's angular rotation?
[25 seconds gone ...]
Gigantic heat loss, eh?...
[the answer is no]
In that case, the answer's simple. A severe drop in the carbon dioxide level in the Earth's lower atmosphere.

4.0 out of 5 stars classic fare from Doctor Who's Monster era October 25, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The Ice Warriors is a treasured link in a season know to fans as the Monster era, where every story in the season featrured a "monster" of some kind. Many of the monsters went on to a repeat performance in later years, and the Ice Warriors were no exception, making 3 more later stories. The idea of a futuristic world frozen over in a new ice age is relevant today, ironically not due to fear of cold, but of warming trends, though the same disasterous effects are predicted. The missing episodes are cleverly linked, and the accompanying audio cd and book fill in the rest perfectly. I was greatly disappointed that the documentary "The Missing Years" and the 1 remaining episode of Troughton's "The Underwater Menace", both included in a box set of the UK release of "The Ice Warriors", were missing from this collection. No doubt Fox/BBC will release this as a seperate video on a future date.Well worth buying though, and we thoroughly enjoyed watching the video, and listening the cd, one episode per day, making it a real treat to watch , listen and imagine. A must have for the true fan!!

4.0 out of 5 stars "I.... await your...punishment...." September 14, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
For Americans, young British viewers, and fans that haven't seen this serial since it aired, well, you're in for a treat. The TARDIS crew lands on Earth in the future, only to discover that the world is in another "ice age". Meantime, scientist from the Britanicus base have uncovered aliens beings frozen in a glacier! Episodes 2 and 3 may never be discovered, but the telesnaps with audio, and the CD help flesh out the missing footage(much better than "The Invasion" release). All the regulars are in fine form, especially Deborah Walting as Victoria, proving she's more than a pretty face. The guest cast isn't that bad. Clent is great, unable to admit that the computer might not know how to solve their problems. And let's not forget the Warriors, with their hissing and huge pressence. Like "The Seeds of Death", it's also has a wonderful soundtrack. The dissident vocals during episode 1 give a creepy feeling throughout the story. Great design. Not to be missed!
