I'm mainly concerned with the fact that Mark Gatiss is writing the episode.

I'm not sure if I have been in the minority or not, but in my opinion his track record since 2005 has been sort of hit or miss. Mostly miss.
IMO, Night Terrors is the only real flop Gatiss has written. Mind you, The Unquiet Dead took several viewings to get develop an appreciation for while The Idiot's Lantern does not hold up to repeated viewings at all. I know I'm in the minority here, but I love Victory of the Daleks.

But it's good to know the Ice Warriors are returning, regardless of who is writing. I've always considered them to be an intriguing race.
