We got a tiny glimpse of the Ice Warriors with the release of a new promo pic for Doctor Who series 7b last week. But here's the first look at the returning classic Who monsters in all their glory.
The design of this new Ice Warrior is pretty faithful to that of his '60s and '70s predecessors. In fact, the only major changes are an absence of fur on the creature's body, and the presence of real, multi-digit hands, rather than the Lego-style 'grippers' the Warriors used to employ.
The Ice Warriors, who were last seen on TV in 1974, are due to return to Doctor Who in series seven part two as the antagonists in a new story by Mark Gatiss.
And if you enjoy seeing them in the new series, you’ll be happy to know their first ever Doctor Who serial, 1967's The Ice Warriors, will be released on DVD this August.
