But the menacing Martians are not the real threat.Through a flashback/origin story, Dinnick takes the reader into the then-recent past, when the Ice Warriors encased a “terrible virusss” called the Flood inside a glacier, stopping the spread of infection across their home planet.But, not before Warrior Haathi became contaminated, stole a shuttle, and “essscaped.”“The Wolves of Winter” part two variant covers (via Titan Comics)“We followed his ssship and forsssed it down here, on an isssland,” according to Grand Marshall Sskoll (whose speech impediment is taken too far for my grammatically correct liking). “We knew if we let it [the virus] fall into the sssea, it would ssspell the end for your ssspeciesss.”The Doctor is all too familiar with the Flood, unwittingly released by the crew of Bowie Base One in 2009 episode “The Waters of Mars.” Existent in it natural state of liquid water, the species needs a physical form to survive. On Bowie Base One, it was the seven-strong team of human colonists. In this case, it’s Ice Warriors and Vikings.A fight between whom, as Bill and Sskoll point out, “would be disssassstrousss.”Good thing the Doctor has a plan!To the war room!
