This week we are Connecting the Docs. (Thanks KarenD for that name suggestion!) Join Deb, Liz, Lynne, and Tansy as they connect Season 13’s “War of the Sontarans” to the 4th Doctor story “The Sontaran Experiment”. We also take a side journey to revisit “The Time Warrior” as well as “The Sontaran Stratagem”.
Terrifying or hilarious? And how do you situate The Sontarans among the Trifecta of Big Bads? More ruthless than the Daleks? More methodical than the Cybermen? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!
Our survey of Doctor Who baddies continues with those kings of the potato people themselves! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we chat about Sontarans. We all rewatched “The Sontaran Stratagem” and “The Poison Sky” as a jumping-off point for this conversation, but fear not classic Who fans, there’s plenty discussion of their origins and development throughout the series (and even Big Finish)!
What do you think of these (usually) stocky, militaristic foes? Let us know in the comments!
While you’re commenting, please vote! We’re going to try our hands at play-along commenting. Let us know which one of these stories you think we should do. (Or let us know on Twitter using #VerityVotes.)
The Curse of the Black Spot
PLUS, feel free to ask us any Doctor Who-related questions you might have. We’ll start covering those in future Extras! (Again, you can also ask on Twitter, using #AskVerity.)
