Synopsis by Hal Erickson

In the second episode of the six-part story "The Ice Warriors," a team of 31st century scientists has inadvertently revived an ancient Ice Warrior named Varga (Bernard Bresslaw). Revealing himself to be from the planet Mars, Varga demands that his space ship, and his fellow Ice Warriors, also be thawed out. It falls to the reluctant Doctor (Patrick Troughton) to carry out the Warrior's orders -- or else. The thrill quotient in this episode is heightened by the evocative music score by Australian composer Dudley Simpson. Written by Brian Hayles, "The Ice Warriors, Episode 2" originally aired on November 18, 1967; unfortunately, none of the four remaining episodes are known to exist.
