In the late 21st century and mankind is totally depen dent on T-Mat, a revolutionary form of instant travel. The Doctor, Jamie and Zoe arrive to find that the sinister Ice Warriors plan to invade Earth, using T-Mat to transport deadly seed pods full of a fungus that will absorb the planet's oxygen. The Doctor must race against time to defeat the Martian invaders - or condemn the human race to suffocation ...


When this story was conceived, written and screened, man had yet to walk on the surface of the moon. With amazing foresight, The Seeds of Death predicts that, once reaching the moon is taken for granted, manned lunar missions would become obsolete. An incredible stance to take in 1969, yet not too far removed from the situation today. Patrick Troughton's time as the Doctor is renowned for the array of original and memorable monsters it featured. The Ice Warriors prove to be effective villains in their encounters with the Second Doctor, and certainly match up to their contemporaries - Daleks, Cybermen and Yeti - in terms of popularity during Troughton 's tenure on Doctor Who. Their creator, Brian Hayles, imbued the Ice Warriors with a sense of noble savagery, and later stories would, uniquely, see this warrior race become allies of the Doctor. In The Seeds of Death, we have a traditional base-under-siege tale which manages both to entertain and provide its fair share of classic Doctor Who moments ...
