The maturation of the Ice Warriors, from stock baddies to honorable soldiers, has been very good to see. Treatment of aliens as intelligent and reasonable is one of the reasons that Doctor Who is so far superior to most American TV science fiction. Russell has kept Brian Hayles' creations intact, from the Ice Warriors to Alpha Centauri to the Peladonians. His own additions, the rat-like Pakha, and a complicated plot involving galactic politics and a lost icon, make the story eminently enjoyable. I am not sure that Benny's snogging an Ice Warrior was wholly necessary.
