The prop thought to have been used in Doctor Who in both the Troughton and Pertwee era’s, was acquired last year. The decision was taken to preserve the prop using a specialist team led by Mike Tucker, the BAFTA award winning model maker who has worked on both the classic and revived versions of Doctor Who.
In preserving the Ice Warrior’s head, all existing pieces were used. Colours were matched for age with layers of silver paint added for an exhibition removed, revealing the orange eye sockets.
It’d be great if it was used on the show somehow. Yeah, I know they now have modern Ice Warrior suits, but put it on a guy in the background, just for giggles.
