We haven’t talked about Sontarans since…well, since ten episodes ago when we reviewed “The Two Doctors”. But there’s no time like the present again, as our roving reporter Andre Tessier has brought us an interview with Dan Starkey, the current series’ lovable and bumbling Strax.
But first we travel back to the Tom Baker era: tin foil monsters, Machiavellian plots, stuffy Time Lords, and tripping over the pool chairs fantastic. That’s right, this one is also about “The Invasion of Time”. Why that one? Because we already know “The Sontaran Experiment” by heart.

Yes, it’s about time we got to this one, isn’t it? “Earthshock”, the one where Adric gets it in the end. The one heralded by many jaded fans as marking the exit of the Jar-Jar Binks of classic Doctor Who. Not only that, but this return of the Cybermen since their last appearance in “Revenge of the Cybermen” is considered by many as one of the crowning moments in JNT’s reign as the show runner.
But are fans too quick to celebrate Matthew Waterhouse’s final episode? Is the story all that it’s cracked up to be? Is it just another example of 1980’s Who parading tired old villains onto the screen for the sake of longtime fanboys? Listen and find out…maybe.
“Like” us on Facebook for some fun extra shit that fans of the show post, email us stuff at firstname.lastname@example.org, and follow Sean on Twitter via @tardistavern. Steve has a Twitter account, too, but Sean is not going to mention it anymore until (1) he starts using it and (2) realizes that his Twitter handle isn’t being shown in these postings.
Oh, hi, Steve…. It’s @tardistaverntit.
