BBC Worldwide Press Release: The Ice Warriors (22nd January 2010)

BBC Worldwide have issued a press release for the release of the latest in their collection of classic stories on audio.

The Ice Warriors, from season five, was a six-part adventure starring Patrick Troughton as the Doctor, with Frazer Hines as Jamie and Deborah Watling as Victoria. It was novelised in 1976 by Brian Hayles, and this four disc CD collection presents the unabridged novelisation with narration by Frazer Hines.

The world is held in the grip of a second Ice Age, and faces total destruction from the rapidly advancing glaciers. Doctor Who, with Victoria and Jamie, lands at a top scientific base in England, where they have just unearthed an ancient Ice Warrior. Aliens from Mars, preserved in the ice for centuries and now revitalised, the Ice Warriors feel ready to take over... Can the Doctor overcome these warlike Martians and halt the relentless approach of the ice glaciers?
