In a video posted on the Doctor Who YouTube channel, Gatiss described them as his “favourite monsters”. On the episode itself, Mark commented:
“It’s a thrill-a-minute, a sort of Bank Holiday Monday feel - the kind of Jules Verne, Edgar Rice Burroughs story of derring-do which I’ve always loved.
But it has a new twist. There is a new Ice Warrior in it.
A new kind of Ice Warrior.”
