Distant past Edit
One Ice Age occurred in the time of Neanderthals. (TV: Ghost Light; AUDIO: The Exxilons) During this time, an Ice Warrior craft from Mars crashed and buried itself. (TV: The Ice Warriors) One Neanderthal was preserved by Light. (TV: Ghost Light) The Dæmons visited Earth, and according to the Third Doctor, inspired cave paintings of powerful supernatural beings. They favoured humans over Neanderthals, causing the latter to die out. (TV: The Dæmons)
Earth suffered another Ice Age circa the year 5000, a time period visited by the Doctor during one of his four incarnations (TV: The Talons of Weng-Chiang) and, later in his life, during his fifth (AUDIO: The Butcher of Brisbane) and eighth incarnations. (PROSE: Emotional Chemistry) The Second Doctor met the thawed Ice Warriors during this time. (TV: The Ice Warriors)
Behind the scenes Edit
