The Gallifrey Times have seen Series 7, Episode 8: Cold War and have put our spoiler-free preview together:

Now, onto the actual Ice Warrior, still looking similar to how they did back in the Troughton era but now in stunning HD, the old foe, played by Spencer Wilding and voiced by Nicolas Briggs, will defintely bring memories back to those who watched the Classic Series.

Overall, Cold War has been well written and this is a great episode for the Ice Warriors to return. I'm sure you'll be at the edge of your sofa (or behind it) throughout and although we don't learn anything else about Clara and how she is possible, we do get an action packed episode that will definitely leave you thinking that Cold War is the best episode that Mark Gatiss has penned so far, and for me it's quite possibly one of the most exciting I've ever seen.
The Gallifrey Times Rating: 9/10
