Synopsis

Deadly Ice Warriors, exploding seed pods and a lethal fungus are among the terrors in store in this feature-length adventure. It is the 21st Century and Earth is totally dependent on T-Mat, a revolutionary form of instant travel.

When the system breaks down the Doctor and friends make a hazardous journey to the relay station on the moon only to find that it has fallen into the hands of the Ice Warriors who plan to invade Earth.

Using T-Mat, the Ice Warriors transport seed pods to Earth which burst, disgorging a deadly Martian fungus. This spreads rapidly, extracting vital oxygen from the atmosphere. Can the Doctor outwit the evil Ice Warriors and destroy the fungus in time to save a dying world?

Episode entry

Notes

  • The Seeds of Death was the fifth episode of season 6
  • Also edited into a movie format; came with a “Screen Legends” sticker on the top of the case
  • The working title for this story was The Lords of the Red Planet.
  • After the opening titles a specially filmed model sequence was used as a background for the story title and episode number, showing a scene of the Earth and Moon. The camera pans across the foreground object then zooms into the background object — Earth or Moon — on which the episode begins. The exception is in episode three where the panning stops between the Earth and the Moon, as this instalment begins in cislunar space.
