Which is fine, he's an Ice Warrior not Judge Dredd

Is that a Dalek plunger I see?

Me likey Ice Warriors.

Off to the right of the motorcycle, right in between the motorcycle and the Ice Warrior, is that supposed to be one of the "Spoonheads" featured in the premiere?

Look on the lower left of the image -- one of the shards contains a wrinkled monstery face. Maybe an Ice Warrior without the helmet? There may be a profile view of same in a shard on the lower right.

Hurray! They... look like Ice Warriors. Was scared after the weird, bland nu-Silurian design.

^I quite like the new Silurian design, although I do miss the third eye.

I like the masks, and it's hard to imagine Madam Vastra working with a more classic look

Plus, it's already been established in Pertwee era that The Silurians had different Tribes and looks, so, the change in appearance is already canonically explained

Right! I think it's actually been explained that the Sea Devils, for example, were intended to be the SAME SPECIES as the Silurians, right?

I don't mind that the Silurians' look has changed; I just think their current look is a lot more generic and bland than the DWatS look. Now, they're basically the same as the Jem'Hadar, Tosk, or any other reptilian make-up you can think of.

I don't think it's bland at all. I think it's quite elegant and aesthetically striking.
