On the Martian moon Deimos, the Ice Warriors sealed themselves away while their planet was rendered inhospitable. By the 23rd Century, they were believed to be extinct and Mars and its moons became popular tourist destinations for humans. But now the Ice Warriors are awake. And they want Mars back.

Listened to this on a road trip. It's been a while since I've listened to these, and couldn't quite remember where I was in the grand scheme of the story, but it was nice to have the Ice Warriors back and Paul McGann was brilliant as always. Nice little twist as well.

This is the first part of a two-part story. As usual, I have reviewed both parts together here.

Set on the titular moon of Mars, as its cover makes clear this is an Ice Warrior story. The Martians here are rather more ruthless than they have been in most other stories since the 2nd Doctor era, showing their general versatility. But the story is much more an examination of the 8th Doctor himself, pushing his philosophy to the fore and forcing him to face up to some of the less palatable consequenc

Tamsin Drew und der Doktor sind diesmal irgendwann in der Zukunft unterwegs. Es geht zum Sightseeing in ein Museum auf dem Marsmond Deimos das den noblen Eiskriegern gewidmet ist, die sich in Höhlen zurückzogen, um den Untergang ihres Planeten in Stasis auszusitzen. Dumm nur, dass die Experten auf dem Gebiet der Eiskrieger, das nicht mitbekommen haben und zudem so einige Inschriften nicht ganz korrekt übersetzt haben.
Als die Eiskrieger dann ganz unerwartet erwachen und das Museum übernehmen, is

The current season of Eighth Doctor stories got off to a bit of a duff start with a new and not terribly engaging companion, Tamsin Drewe played by Nikki Wardley. Somehow in Jonathan Morris's two-parter Deimos/The Resurrection of Mars it catches fire, with various agonising about Ice Warriors and the fate of planets and whether or not the Doctor can or should take responsibility for the consequences of his actions. Oddly enough it's McGann who sometimes doesn't sound quite sure if he should be t ...more

On a frozen moon of dead Mars archaeologists find more than just the relics of the Ice Warriors.
The quality of all the Eighth Doctor stories from Big Finish has been universally and consistently high. Although this was not my absolute favourite story in this series it is still a great piece of audio drama featuring a classic enemy. I enjoyed the pace and feeling of tension in this story. Plus Ice Warriors rock. An excellent cast give a great performance with a wonderful script.

I did quite enjoy this story. It was nice to have Ice Warriors and David Warner in the same audio. It was nice to have a more serious adventure and a bigger plot. The ice warriors were quite threatening and spooky, (though my favourite use of them being Peladon it was a bit sad that they were simply the bad guys and there wasn't anything more mixed up about them). I'm afraid Tamsin still remains a rather dull companion.

Jonathan Morris is a prolific writer of Doctor Who fiction. He has contributed to many ranges, in every medium except television. His style has often been compared to that of Douglas Adams, perhaps in part because he dedicated The Tomorrow Windows to Adams. Indeed, this dedication was discussed at length in at least one prominent interview about the book, in which the interviewer's questions and M ...more
