Rumour has it that the scaly martians might make a come back next year (mind you, people seem to have been saying that since 1983!!). Which was the best of the classic Ice Warrior stories?

None of them are particularly great , but I go for THE SEEDS OF DEATH because its just very good fun with lots of silly Troughton scenes and corridors!

That chase is a Chaplin-esque classic!!

'You can't kill me - I'm a genius!'

I'm torn between Monster and Seeds.

Has to be The Ice Warriors.

Seeds is too long, Curse of Peladon is a sub-Star Trek story (replace Ice Warriors with Klingons and Arcturus with Romulans and you see what I mean.). Monster retreads the same tired ground but is even duller and is six mind numbing episodes long. If I never see that one again, so much the better.

ANd RTD has said that the Ice Warriors are NOT coming back next year. Frankly, I don't give a toss because I don't think I'll be watching it.

Went for Seeds in the end. Great sets and Slaar is a marvellous old school bad guy.

I still have a big soft spot for Monster. Yes, its too long. But it looks like a season 14 story, Eckersley is a good villain (it's not just the PVC, honest ), Sarah gets loads to do and how can you not love Alpha?

It's interesting that Janov compares the Warriors in Curse to the Klingons. I'm not sure if this was the case (I can't remember if OS Klingons went in for honour), but it certainly seems to have been picked up on in most of their spin off appearences. In Hayles scripts they are IMO, sadistic b******s who nontheless have a code relating to personal obligation. Sadly in the books and audios this has mean them going on about honour all the bleeding time just like the Next Gen Klingons. It's gone from being an element of their nature to the entirety of it.

Some spin off writers - Justin Richards is the worst offender with 'Red Dawn' - seemed to assume that just 'cos the Ice Warriors are 'honourable' they are automatically admirable. This is clearly not true, as many people have done terrible things in the name of what they believe is an honourable cause!

Anyway, back on to the subject at hand, it's gotta be Seeds!!

Monster is two episodes too long and the tired bit about Sarah Jane teaching the Queen about women's lib is not a high point in teh show's history.

Ice Warriors work better in B & W.

I can just about remember watching it as a 5 year old! I bought when it came out on VHS in 1987 and have now got it on DVD as my VHS copy is a bit worn!
