Despite terrible weather, Sidney drags Nigel along to an Arctic base where an ancient Indian mummy has been found. It turns out to be an Anasazi, from warmer hunting ground, but also connected with the numerous deaths on the small base - will they ever get back alive?Written by
A helicopter takes Nigel and Sydney to a station near the Arctic Circle. A frozen body was found, a man who died centuries ago, and they are to investigate who he was. Makes the Scottish coastline feel Mediterranean by comparison", Nigel complains when they arrive at 50 degrees below zero, but what really makes their blood freeze is that the station was demolished by something or someone, and nobody is left to welcome them. Something terrible must have happened...
For broadcast in Germany, the episode 'Under the Ice' was retitled into 'The Mummy', so I was prepared for a boring episode about an Egyptian mummy that rises from the dead to do the same old routine, you know: walk around in the middle of the night and scare people. Fortunately, 'Under the Ice' turned out to have a fresh – no pun intended – idea, leading to a story that could have filled 90 minutes of a movie as well. Maybe it's reminding the audience a bit of The Thing", but for afternoon TV, of course it contains no serious violence. Instead of temples and jungles, 'Under the Ice' shows a different surrounding, that is some good variety in the middle of the season.
