Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

Breaking The Ice Warriors

We continue to delve into the origins of Doctor Who‘s “classic” villains. Join Tansy and Erika for this chat about Martians that maybe kinda sorta look like Vikings? If you can’t see them very well? And maybe don’t know what a Viking actually looks like?

What did you think of “The Ice Warriors” and of Ice Warriors in general? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!


Happy things:

Episode 141 – Empress of Mars Attacks

Low expectations may have helped, but all three Verities enjoyed this ep to varying degrees. Join Deb, Erika, and Katrina as we talk about what we liked and, of course, the few things we didn’t. There was some definite “iffy” territory to cover as well.

What did you think of “Empress of Mars”? Was it rollicking, fanservicey fun? Did it make you uncomfortable from a representational perspective? Possibly both? Does the title need a definitive article? Let us know in the comments!
