classic fare from Doctor Who's Monster era,
By A Customer
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Ice Warriors [VHS] (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!!
