Following his revival into a world dominated by humans, Icthar decided, with his fellows, to take over Sea Base 4 with Sea Devil troops and a Myrka, and trigger a nuclear war between two human factions. His familiarity with the Fifth Doctor suggests an earlier encounter. Turlough shot him with a Sea Devil weapon while he was recovering from hexachromite gas poisoning. He attacked and killed Vorshak as his last act. (TV: Warriors of the Deep)
Behind the scenes Edit
- Some fans commonly associate Icthar with the surviving member of the three Silurian leaders, "Silurian Scientist", seen in Doctor Who and the Silurians.
- The Target novelisation, Doctor Who and the Cave-Monsters, gives alternative names of all three and does not list Ichtar as one of the three.
- Additionally, Icthar appears in the novel PROSE: The Scales of Injustice, which also establishes that Silurians belong to different races or sub-species, with Icthar belonging to a different sub-species than the one seen in Doctor Who and the Silurians.
