Ice Cap Terror was a TV Comic story featuring the Second Doctor and Jamie McCrimmon. It was significant to the continuity established by Polystyle in that it was the first time that the Second Doctor was seen addressing modern-day Earth via the mass media. The Doctor's televised broadcast to the world in the final panel established him as a well-known figure on mid-20th century Earth — something that would be continued throughout the remainder of the run.

Notes Edit

  • The fact that the Doctor addresses the whole world on television in this story informs the final episode of The War Games. This act can be read as one of the reasons why the Second Doctor claims to be "known on the Earth" in War Games, when his televised run has him meeting only a handful of modern-day residents of Earth, most of which were UNIT soldiers.
