    I have never understood why the Ice Warriors never got the number of stories as some others. I really liked them and there seem to be more to them than Cybermen and Daleks.

    You know Steven Moffat doesn't like the Ice Warriors.

    i like them. i don't hate Steven Moffatt like many seem to. but i do think that he should bring them back or hell even some of the lessor famous monsters from the original show. and also create new vililans as well. like i love the episode where they had people's fat come off you and and i forget the name of that race or even the episode but i think it was on during the David Tennet" era.



    my aunt who loves the show as well hates the Daleks. and i don't mean one of those loves to hate them things either she hates them with a passion. i love them. and whenever i watch dr. who i look at the science on it this way. some of it may be true but other things may be made up. i think the writers even have said about the show. they don't what's being said they just make it up.



    i may be wrong about that but that sounds about right. yet nobody ever complains about the science of Dr. who cause they know this as well. or maybe some people believe that it's all non fiction. i dunno but you get what i'm saying i'm sure.

    Is it I just hate them kind of thing or does he have a reason? The 2005 Who has really over did the Cybermen and Daleks. I was very happy when I 1st learn that they were returning. Now I wish they would go awayfor awhile.

    It was good to see the return of the Ice Warrios. It was a very good story and we got to know a little more about how they view some events. I hope we will see more of them.

    oh i loved it. and i just LOVED David Warner in it. course he's a favorite actor of mine anyways. and i also LOVED the fact that for once he didn't play a bad guy. for once. and having the ice warrior go outside his armor i think was really a great idea. i don't care if it was CGI or not. it worked for me. and it was done well. i do wonder when they had the time to get their picture taken though the doctor and Clara and the crew. if you recall the kids find pics of her online with her and the crew and other adventures as well.

    It was in season 7 part 2 of the new Doctor Who with Matt Smith. It just seem to have carried over here. The story is callled Cold War.

    I think I missed this story when it was on tv. On well - I'm sure I'll see it when it gets repeated on tv soon...
