Gatiss Teases More Ice Warriors
The upcoming episode Cold War will see the long-awaited return of the Ice Warriors, and if writer Mark Gatiss has his way, that won’t be the last we see of them.
“I don’t want to give a politician’s ‘wait and see’ answer, but I’d love to do more with them now they’re back in Cold War,” he says in the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine.
He adds: “Mars is under-explored in Doctor Who. I want to see the class system, the Phobos Heresy, the Olympian caste, all the things that we’re hinting at in Cold War. I want to see Martian society. Whether it’s 5,000 years ago or 15,000 years in the future, it’s a whole new world to explore.”
“The Ice Warriors are back where they belong, and I’m thrilled.”
