Synopsis by Hal Erickson

The six-episode Doctor Who adventure "The Ice Warriors" is set in 3000 A.D., when the earth is in the midst of a new Ice Age. The Doctor (Patrick Troughton) joins a team of scientists headquartered in an emergency base, all of whom are dedicated to preventing an ice barrier from consuming the world. Unfortunately, the team accidentally revives a frozen Ice Warrior named Varga (Bernard Bresslaw) -- who, to put it mildly, is up to no good. Written by Brian Hayles, "The Ice Warriors, Episode 1" originally aired on November 11, 1967; of the six episodes, only the first and second are presently available in the BBC archives.
