Skaldak is chained up, and Clara volunteers to negotiate with him as a neutral party, someone who -- unlike the crew and the Doctor -- has never seen war. Skaldak sees right through her plans, and directly addresses the Doctor via Clara's headset. Clara, scared of out her mind but trying to remain stoic, soon notices that there's something wrong with Skaldak . . . and finds out that he's escaped from his chained-up armour, and the contraption of wires and scales is left behind as a husk. It's also sending out an interstellar distress call. It isn't being answered, and Skaldak is forced to come to terms with the idea of being the last of his kind.

* ShownTheirWork: 1983 was indeed the point in which the the Cold War could have very easily run hot, due to the (alluded to) Able Archer '83 exercises that terrified the already paranoid Soviets. There were even several close calls throughout the year, including [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1983_Soviet_nuclear_false_alarm_incident one famous incident]] where only the cool head of a Soviet radar operator deciding that the missile that appeared on his screen was not a launch but most likely an equipment malfunction prevented a full-scale nuclear launch. Coincidentally (or not), this event occurred only a couple of weeks before the 20th anniversary ''Doctor Who'' special [[Recap/DoctorWho20thASTheFiveDoctors "The Five Doctors"]] was broadcast.

The Doctor -- while not typically thought of as a soldier, but who has fought in at least one incredibly famous war -- has no answer.

* ArtisticLicenceHistory: Despite it being ''the'' height of Cold-War tensions and paranoia, in 1983 a single multi-nuke strike would not necessarily have been enough to provoke a saturation-strike response - likely only warranting a tit-for-tat attack upon a similar (or greater) number of targets. This is because the USA had finally abandoned its ''de facto'' policy of Massive Retaliation Doctrine ([[DisproportionateRetribution full nuclear war in response to any nuclear strike]]) by this time, after having [[InNameOnly nominally abandoned it]] way back in the 1950s. Then again, they would've had to look up a specialist journal or book detailing Nuclear Retaliation Doctrines of the Cold War to find that out.

The Doctor and Clara land on a damaged Soviet nuclear submarine [[UsefulNotes/ColdWar at the height of the Second Cold War, in 1983]] (instead of, as they were aiming for, UsefulNotes/LasVegas), as it spirals out of control into the ocean depths. They immediately get captured while the TARDIS vworps off without them, leaving them stranded in a submarine that's (a) slowly filling up with water and (b) home to a massive chunk of excavated ice with an [[Recap/DoctorWhoS5E3TheIceWarriors Ice Warrior]] stuck inside it. The Doctor decides to cut straight to the point and explains that he's a time traveller. He confronts the Ice Warrior as gently as possible, and learns that his name is Skaldak -- the greatest war hero in Martian history. Unfortunately, one of the crew electrocutes Skaldak out of sheer terror, and the Doctor realises that to the Ice Warriors, this can only be seen as a provocation into interstellar war.

Skaldak is chained up, and Clara volunteers to negotiate with him as a neutral party, someone who -- unlike the crew and the Doctor -- has never seen war. Skaldak sees right through her plans, and directly addresses the Doctor via Clara's headset. Clara, scared of out her mind but trying to remain stoic, soon notices that there's something wrong with Skaldak... and finds out that he's escaped from his chained-up armour, and the contraption of wires and scales is left behind as a husk. It's also sending out an interstellar distress call. It isn't being answered, and Skaldak is forced to come to terms with the idea of being the last of his kind.

While Skaldak rushes around the submarine, killing people from the shadows and dissecting them for information on mankind, the Doctor and Clara try to reason with him. Skaldak eventually learns that the submarine has nuclear warheads, and decides to blow up the Earth in retribution, preferring to go down fighting instead of dying defeated and alone. The Doctor vows that he'll gladly sacrifice himself and everyone on board if it means keeping the web of time intact. He and Clara extend the stalemate with Skaldak -- with Skaldak's finger on the button the entire time -- long enough for the BigDamnHeroes to arrive: an Ice Warrior spaceship, which picked up Skaldak's distress call after all.
