PlotEdit

DeimosEdit

On the Martian moon Deimos, the Ice Warriors sealed themselves away when 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.

The Resurrection of MarsEdit

The Ice Warriors are willing to kill every human colonist on Mars in order to reclaim it. And someone is threatening to disrupt the Web of Time for what they believe to be the greater good. The Doctor has to make a difficult choice. And his companion does not agree with him.

The preview cover image differs from the cover included with the physical disc; the true cover reduces the size of the Ice Warrior image to focus on Lucie and the Monk, and it does give cover credit to their portrayers, Smith and Garden.
