It’s been hinted at frequently and the episode title makes it clear, we’ll be getting our first look at a female Ice Warrior on Doctor Who. Not only that, but judging by the title, “The Empress of Mars”, she’s in charge of the whole planet of “upright crocodiles”.
That’s not the only surprise to be found on Mars. Turns out there are a bunch of Victorian soldiers living underground. Um, what? And these ever dutiful chaps think they can defeat the Ice Warriors.
