1967 Ice Warrior head found.

Post by Admin-Emperor Dalek on Fri 2 Jun 2017 - 16:19

From Doctor Who News site:

One of the original Ice Warrior masks, first used in the 1967 Second Doctor story, has been found and restored by Toybox Treasures.


The prop thought to have been used in Doctor Who in both the Troughton and Pertwee era's, was acquired last year. The decision was taken to preserve the prop using a specialist team led by Mike Tucker, the BAFTA award winning model maker who has worked on both the classic and revived versions of Doctor Who.


In preserving the Ice Warrior’s head, all existing pieces were used. Colours were matched for age with layers of silver paint added for an exhibition removed, revealing the orange eye sockets.


The Ice Warriors first appeared on Saturday 11th November 1967 in the six-part story The Ice Warriors. Their success ensured their return the following season in the story The Seeds of Death. The first colour appearance came in 1972 in the Jon Pertwee story The Curse of Peladon followed by The Monster of Peladon two years later.


A full report on the restoration, including an exclusive interview with Mike Tucker is published in Doctor Who Magazine Issue 513.
