Once again, they were the bad guys, but it was made clear that it was a small group rather than the whole race wanting war this time. Skaldak, the name of the Ice Warrior, was revived, and imprisoned the crew, including the Doctor and Clara.

Thinking he was alone, he was trying to destroy the human race, like his people would have wanted, but was taken back by his race to Mars before he could do any damage.

Feel free to play the Psycho music in your head…. Instead, they lumber around like men in silly cardboard suits, shuffling awkwardly and occasionally seeming like they might knock over the scenery. In a brilliant twist, the Ice Warriors were presented as an honest and decent alien species, immediately distinguishing them from recurring foes like the Daleks or the Cybermen or the Autons or the Great Intelligence. Brian Hayles suggests that the creatures were subject to the whims of fate , managing to be both lucky in that they were reused later in the Troughton era and unlucky in that they were brushed aside by later production teams :.
Doctor Who and the Ice Warriors
The Ice Warriors were never intended to return after their first appearance , but I think at some stage it was decided to try them out again as possible recurring villains. I think there would have been more stories featuring them, had it not been for the big change when Pat Troughton left.
Barry Letts and Terrance Dicks came in and wanted to get away from the past, which I think was a very wise move. I was very surprised when they decided to bring them back after a few years. That said, I suppose that using them as green men from Mars was a hook too good to pass up. The Ice Warriors is very well constructed. That said, The Ice Warriors does feel like its drawn in the broadest manner possible. Leader Client places too much faith in computers, and so must learn to engage with his humanity. Storr is a broadly-drawn Luddite, who is promptly killed off near the end of the fourth episode so the audience understands that the Ice Warriors are bad news.
The conflict between the Doctor and Client is fairly clear from the first scene the two spend together, but The Ice Warriors feels the need to repeatedly clobber us over the head with it. Prepare phase one base evacuation procedure. Phase one evacuation. The Ice Warriors plays a lot with the idea of time, and the notion that the future and the past are not as radically distinct as we might want to be. The Ice Warriors is set in the future, but it unfolds during an Ice Age. It seems like the past and the future are combining. The sophisticated science-fiction jumpsuits inside the base are juxtaposed against the more primitive fur skins worn by Storr and Penley, who seem to want to regress to a more primitive form of human existence.
Simultaneously, the Ice Warriors are presented simultaneously as relics of the distant past and futuristic science-fiction space monsters. Some concepts and ideas and images endure. The second and third episodes of The Ice Warriors have been animated and set to the original soundtrack. The animation is of quite high quality. The animated shots are directed and edited in a style for more in keeping the mood and aesthetic of the live-action episodes than they were on The Reign of Terror.
