Classic monsters confirmed for Doctor Who return

We're not going to spoil it in the title, but some old foes are back for Doctor Who series 7. Details right here...

We figure that if you've got this far, you're aware that spoilers are likely to follow. But just to be on the safe side, if you want to go into Doctor Who series 7 part 2 absolutely cold, it's best to look away now.

Still here?

Right then. The fine folks at SFX have broken the news that the ice warriors are, as suspected, definitely returning to Doctor Who, for the first time since the show was revived. One of the show's most iconic monsters, they've actually not been seen in Who since the mid-70s, in the Jon Pertwee story The Monster Of Peladon. They did get a brief namecheck in The Waters Of Mars though, back in 2009.

This time, they're going to be seen again. Mark Gatiss has penned the episode that sees the ice warriors' return, and what's more, they're going to be trapped on a submarine, according to the report.

The ice warriors will be back in the third episode of the new run of Doctor Who, which kicks off on March 30th. Excellent news.
