Now who is this handsome fellow you wonder?
This is an Ice Warriors from the classic run of Doctor Who.
They first battled the Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton) in 1967. The Ice Warriors appeared in six other serials before disappearing 1974.
And now in the 50th anniversary year, the Ice Warriors are back in a story penned by Sherlock co-creator Mark Gatiss. The Ice Warriors will come back in an episode that takes place on a submarine.
Doctor Who executive producer Caro Skinner had this to say about the episode in an interview with SFX: “Mark is an enormous fan of the Ice Warrior stories and came up with the idea. The sense of a monster of that scale and that size trapped in a really small, contained environment such as a submarine was a really brilliant story to be able to tell. “
The Ice Warriors will appear in the third episode that will air after Doctor Who comes back on March 30th.
