Trivia

Brian Hayles envisioned the eponymous Ice Warriors as Viking-like cybernetic creatures, with high-tech instruments on their armour and helmets. Costume designer Martin Baugh, however, saw the creatures as more reptilian, with the armour and helmet actually appearing as part of the monsters' carapace. See more »

Anachronisms Usually Bug Me...However...
20 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

Well, first, let me say I'm not a huge fan of anime, but if this is the only way I'd ever be able to see this classic story, then so be it. For anyone curious, "Ice Warriors" has just been released on DVD...missing episodes were re-created utilizing the original audio, and the action was cartoonified.

The story itself is standard base-attacked-by-aliens. I've always felt that the Ice Warriors were one of the more well-realized monsters of this era, and this is certainly no exception (for contrast, please see the 5-foot-tall prawn in the Tom Baker era).

Now...as I said earlier, I usually bristle at ridiculous anachronisms in TV and film. In a rare shift of acceptance, I have to honestly say that smokin' 60's babes running around an Antarctic sub-station wearing mini-mini-mini skirts is OK with me!
