Doctor Who: The Newbies Guide

The Seeds of Death

This is the fifth story of Season Six.


The second Doctor is short with a beatles moptop. He tends to act the part of a fool and give events a push in the right direction rather than directly taking control. He also plays the recorder.


Jamie McCrimmon is a scots piper who met the Doctor after the battle of Culluden in The Highlanders. He is proud of his Scottishness and wears a kilt and carries a dirk (knife).

Zoe Heriot is a scientist from the 21st Century with an eidetic memory. Her specialities are astrophysics and mathematics. She helped the Doctor and Jamie defeat Cybermen in The Wheel in Space before deciding to join them in their travels.

Recurring and Historical Characters

The Ice Warriors come from the planet Mars. They are partially cyborg, and prefer lower temperatures than humans do. In The Ice Warriors, the Doctor Jamie and Victoria discovered a spaceship of Ice Warriors frozen in centuries-old ice on Earth. They successfully stopped these Ice Warriors from conquering Earth when a group seeking to hold back advancing glaciers accidentally uncovered the ship and woke up its inhabitants.

None. Whilst the Ice Warriors have appeared before, the only thing relevant to this story is that the Doctor and Jamie have fought them before.
