Doctor Who: Brand New Ice Warrior Picture

Doctor Who: New Ice Warrior Picture


Here’s your first good look at the new Ice Warrior design. It’ll make its debut in the third episode of Doctor Who series 7b, written by Mark Gatiss and directed by Douglas Mackinnon. Very faithful, isn’t it? Is he wearing old-fashioned 3D glasses in anticipation of November’s anniversary special, or is that just a trick of the light?

Producer Caro Skinner discusses the new series of Doctor Who, from Ice Warriors to Cybermen and all points inbetween, in the next issue of SFX, #233 – on sale Wednesday 6 March with a Doctor Who cover.

    Looks great! Though I do wish they’d kept the clawed hands… Ah, well, at least it has a decent range of movement now… I hope…

    Nothing special, only the hands have changed, plus you can’t really alter the look of an Ice Warrior anyway as far as I can see.

    I did recently however draw and upload a drawing onto Deviant Art where I drew what an Ice Warrior looks like in the series, and beside it, what I think they probably do look like underneath the armour, cos we really don’t get to see an Ice Warrior without it’s gear off, let alone a helmet. The upload is called –

    Doctor Who – Under the armour of an Ice Warrior.

    I think Moffat’s finally got it, i think he’s got how to redesign monsters and name them, now only if he hadn’t called the creature of the first episode of the season Spoonheads

    I think for once it looks very good. But they do look a bit chunky.

    Actual brilliant re-design, bit chunkier, but makes it all the more menacing I think.

    Im almost relived that this time the creeative production team have kept to the original design and hopefully the episode do the Ice Lords of Mars some justice.

    I’m just happy they didn’t do what they did to the silurians and completely change them. These ice warriors look amazing.

    admittedly its not a large image, but its still see-able

    At the bottom of the sfx page, which you’ve linked at the top of this one, there is an icon saying ‘Doctor Who: New Ice Warrior Picture’ and above it there is an image of the new ice warrior from chest up. Have a look!

    i’ve already seen it. They look pretty much the same but the body is much bulkier!

    i’ve kind of got a feeling as to what they look like from the pics, 3 fingered pointed teeth with no collar.

    imagine if the head is the same, but the whole body is very different and they messed up the body!

    I’m glad not much has changed. I love the old design apart from the hands.

    I bet it won’t look that different from the classic Ice Warriors.

    From what Ive seen of the pictures so far, only the hands have changed.
