ICE AGES The Martians scouted Earth during one of its prehistoric Ice Ages. A squadron, led by Varga, was accidentally trapped and frozen in ice. Another ice age caused by a drop in carbon dioxyde level and deforestation occurred in 3000 AD but was stopped thanks to the World Ioniser program (OO). Also see ANTHROPOLOGY.

ICE WARRIORS Native Martians. They were huge, green, scaly creatures, equipped with sonic guns (on
their claws) and heavy armour. Coming from a super-cold environment, the Ice Warriors were sensitive to heat,
which was their only known weakness. The leaders appeared to be slightly sleeker and less bulky than the
The Martians scouted Earth during its first Ice Age. A squadron led by Varga was accidentally trapped and frozen in ice. Soon afterwards, possibly because they had not heard from Varga, the Martians decided to leave their dying planet and emigrate to another world in the galaxy (OO).
The Second Doctor first came across the Martians when Varga and his men were found buried in a glacier in 3000 AD. The name "Ice Warrior" was originally coined by Walters, but it was apparently close to the original Martian term, since they also referred to themselves by that name. The Doctor foiled Varga's attempts at conquest and destroyed the Ice Warriors and their ship (OO).
The Second Doctor met the Martians again when, towards the end of the 21st Century, a war-like party of Ice Warriors, under Slaar's leadership, returned to the Solar System and tried to conquer Earth by using the so-called "Seeds of Death". Slaar's defeat seemed to have convinced the other Martians to abandon any further attempts at attacking the Solar System (XX).
The Martians then built a small, presumably peaceful, empire of their own, and eventually joined the Federation. Their ambassador to Peladon, Izlyr, helped the Third Doctor thwart Arcturus's plans (MMM). A renegade Ice Warrior, Azaxyr, later betrayed the Federation to Galaxy 5 on Peladon, but was foiled by the Third Doctor (YYY).
ICELAND North Atlantic island which was the seat of the peaceful Icelandic Alliance in the 51st Century. After its Commissioner was assassinated by Greel's Peking Homunculus, World War Six erupted and the ruthless Supreme Alliance came into power. It was finally overthrown at the battle of Reykjavik (4S).
ICELANDIC ALLIANCE Peaceful 51st Century power which fell after its Commissioner was assassinated by Magnus Greel's Peking Homunculus (4S).
ICEWORLD Space trading post located on the dark side of Svartos. It was owned and controlled by the merciless Kane. A living mechanoid in the shape of a dragon roamed its depths. The Seventh Doctor discovered that the Dragon's body hid a powerful energy crystal known as "Dragonfire". He also found that Iceworld was in reality a huge spaceship which needed the dragonfire to start up again. After Kane's suicide, Iceworld fell into the possession of Glitz, who rechristened it Nosferatu II (7G).
ICTHAR Silurian scientist and third member of the Silurian triad which included the Old and the Young
Silurians. He was in charge of reanimating the Silurians from Wenley Moor. He helped the Young Silurian
inoculate Major Baker with a virus meant to wipe out mankind, and later set up the Molecular Disperser to destroy
the Van Allen Belt. Tricked by the Third Doctor, he and his brethren went back into hibernation. Their
shelter was later blown up by UNIT (BBB).
Icthar obviously survived since he returned in the year 2084 AD with his companions Scibus and Tarpok. He then reanimated a Sea Devil commando led by Sauvix, and attacked Sea Base Four. His plan was to launch nuclear missiles to provoke a war between the two blocs, and thus eradicate mankind (as had been the Young Silurian's last wish). He died when the Fifth Doctor used deadly hexachromite gas (6L). According to some reports, his Silurian name was also spelled K'to (BBB).
IDAS One of the Trogs of the Underworld. He helped the Fourth Doctor and Jackson's crew fight the Oracle and steal the Minyan Race Banks. He and a number of his people escaped the Underworld's destruction by leaving aboard Jackson's ship (4Y).

IMMORTAL, THE The citizens of the UK Habitat referred to Drathro as the Immortal (7A).
IMMORTALITY The Time Lords' ability to regenerate was a form of immortality (see REGENERATION).
However, true immortality, as promised by Rassilon, was a trap (6K). Other entities who were virtually immortal
included: the Guardians of Time (q.v.), the Celestial Toymaker (Y), the Elders (AA), the Great Intelligence (q.v.),
the Nestene (q.v.), Axos (GGG), the Daemons (JJJ), Kronos (OOO), the Osirians (4G), the Sisterhood of Karn (4K),
the Mandragora Helix (4M), the Kastrians (4N), the Fendahl (4X), Cessair (5C), Meglos (5Q), the Vampires (5P),
the Mara (q.v.), the Xeraphin (6C), the Eternals (6G), the Gods of Ragnarok (7J), Morgaine (7N), Light (7Q) and
Queen Xanxia tried to keep her body alive by using the energies pillaged by Zanak (5B). Monarch of Urbanka had devised an artifical form of immortality by storing memories on silicon chips, implanted in lifelike androids (5W). Mawdryn and his fellow scientists were condemned to live in a horrible state of perpetual regeneration (6F). The Time Lords prevented Crozier from developing a mind-transfer device which would have led to a form of immortality (7B).
Barring destruction, the Cybermen were probably immortal since they could replace their body parts. Many alien races, such as the Zygons (4F), the Ice Warriors (q.v.), the Silurians and the Sea Devils (q.v.), the Ogri (5C), the Tharils (5S), the Morlox (6Y), Kane of Proamon (7G), etc. had longer life spans than man.
IMPERIAL DALEKS (a.k.a. WHITE DALEKS) A race of Daleks created by Davros to be totally subservient to him. They were first created from the bodies kept in the Tranquil Repose mortuary (6Z). Later christened Imperial Daleks, they were used by Davros to capture the Hand of Omega on Earth. The Seventh Doctor used the Hand to destroy their ship. They presumably perished in the explosion (7H).

INFERNO Nickname given to Prof. Stahlman's pet project, which consisted of drilling beneath the Earth's crust in order to tap pockets of Stahlman's gas, in theory a new, massive source of energy. In addition to releasing a green slime which caused men to turn into Primords, the completion of Inferno would have released so much energy that the Earth would have been turned into a molten mass of gases. Such was indeed the fate of a parallel Earth where the Third Doctor could not stop Inferno in time (DDD).

Vortis, he encountered the giant ant-like Zarbi and the butterfly-like Menoptera (N). The Third Doctor encountered
giant maggots created by the "Green Death" (TTT) and giant, mutated, intelligent spiders on Metebelis
3 (ZZZ). The Fourth Doctor helped free the Space Ark from the wasp-like Wirrn (4C). The Chimerons'
biology was similar to that of insects; their queen, Delta, was able to communicate with Goronwy's bees (7F).
The Rani used a swarm of deadly insects to control the Lakertyans (7D).

cured by parrinium (XXX)) and which, as a result, became very xenophobic. Its president, Zarb, tried improving
