Product Description

Amazon.ca

The Doctor and his companions Victoria and Jamie find themselves in a frozen wasteland inhabited by futuristic interior dwellers and other older creatures in Doctor Who: The Ice Warriors. Patrick Troughton, the second Doctor, reigned in the late 1960s as the most frenetic (and delightfully irritable) of the Time Lord's many incarnations, and his manic energy is infectious as he romps through the fantastic ultramodern sets, trying to set things right as the civilization slides toward destruction. The Jetsons-like extras are often amusingly dim and stunningly dressed, giving plenty of opportunities for the heroes to make fun of the people they are trying to save, a hallmark of the series. This might not be the best introduction to the Doctor Who series--its fast-paced plot and rapid-fire dialogue might bewilder the novice--but for the connoisseur it's irreplaceable fun. --Rob Lightner

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best vintage WHO's you will see Nov. 6 2001
By tummy
Format:VHS Tape
I grew up in the Posh Deadpan Pertwee era, my teens in the wide eyed curly haired Tom Baker years, and suffered the consequences of the overacting and badly portrayed final doctors of the downhill years there after.
Pat Troughton was Dr Who in my eyes even though I wasn't born until the mid 60's.The Ice warriors does not loose out by having missing episodes as the linking material is excellent. This is a video you can sit and watch without feeling the need for distraction or breaks. Fraser Heinz is, as usual, excellent as the doctors companion. The story is gripping and never boring. This is the one to buy-definitly recommended to those uncertain of purchasing it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your usual ice pops July 3 2002
Format:VHS Tape
One of the great things about Patrick Troughton was his ability to display great humanity. None of the other Doctors managed the feat of the little panic attacks and the indecision and the occasional fluster and bluster.
I suspect that the lack of espisodes of this irrascible fellow makes them even more valuable. This particular story, originally transmitted between November 11 and December 16 1967, focuses attention on the problems of a new ice age and man's inability to defend him(her)self against mother nature. Once again there is the case against reliance on computers to find solutions, requiring the utmost obedience and removing the need for the human race to think for themselves. Indeed, those who do think for themselves and see the flaws in the case for computer dominance are derided, denounced and outcast.
The leader of the station is also disabled but he is not handicapped by the disability and leads his team despite the adverse conditions even though the mounting evidence against the computers becomes glaringly obvious. Ultimately he sees the error of his ways and regains his humanity in a final display of leadership.
The Ice Warriors are cast as a militaristic society with soldiers and officers but one has some sympathy with their need for conquest due to the dying planet Mars being unable to sustain life any more. This plays out as a tragic Darwinian survival of the fittest struggle when the warriors are ultimately defeated with the aid of the Doctor's assistance.
Happily this VHS tape was released which includes the soundtrack for the entire show on CD. Unhappily, there are many missing episodes, mainly of the Troughton years and the likelihood of them being found diminishes daily. In England the BBC is releasing CD versions of the missing stories which hopefully will be generally available in the US soon.
This is another excellent Doctor Who Story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for fans of Troughton. Dec 29 2001
Format:VHS Tape
What is it about Patrick Troughton that makes him such a loveable Doctor? "The Ice Warriors" terrifically captures Troughton in his element as the Doctor and delves into the mystery of the Ice Warriors. I was first introduced to them in a Jon Pertwee episode and had no clue about them. However, after doing research and seeing some Troughton episodes, I know more.
Buy it, watch it, and cherish this video.
