The Keys of Marinus - Frozen in Ice

Deep inside the ice caves Ian, Barbara, Altos and the treacherous trapper Vasor search for Susan and Sabetha

After making their way to the other side of a bottomless crevasse they meet the girls, but Vasor cuts the ropes of the fragile bridge and leaves them stranded.

Whilst they consider how to escape Sabetha takes them to a nearby chamber where she has discovered the penultimate key. It is suspended within a giant block of ice along with four frozen warriors, standing guard. Barbara finds a mechanism that heats the chamber and slowly the ice starts to melt.
