Cool! I hope they make them not just villains but the more tragic figures from their original episode.

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.

Good! To be fair, there hasn't been a lot of good Ice Warriors stories.

Yay! About time they made a comeback. They're the most prominent classic monsters that haven't yet returned.

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.

Gatiss didn't write anything in 7A. 7A consisted of:
Asylum of the Daleks by Steven Moffat
Dinosaurs on a Spaceship by Chris Chibnall
A Town Called Mercy by Toby Whithouse
The Power of Three by Chirs Chibnall
The Angels Take Manhattan by Steven Moffat

Ah, OK, it was Chibnall, who's often maligned, but, had two good episodes, my bad

I enjoyed Gatiss' "Night Terrors" but his other stuff I haven't been fond of.

Goes to prove that sometimes people claiming to be "In The Know" are telling the truth, since this is exactly what was rumoured many months ago.

Now if the other half of what's rumoured comes to pass I wonder how people will react...
