New Series Episode 145:
Empress Of Mars


When NASA discovers a giant message in English on the surface of Mars, more than a century old, the Doctor, Bill and Nardole travel to the Red Planet in 1881 to investigate. There they discover a platoon of British soldiers, who have travelled to Mars after finding an Ice Warrior in suspended animation, crashlanded in the African veldt. The soldiers believe that the Ice Warrior plans to reward them with riches excavated from beneath the dead surface of Mars, but in fact they are being used to locate the Empress Iraxxa and her legion of Warriors.
