"But it was a childish dream that made you a doctor."
Doctor Who - 1996
Today on my rewatch was The Sontaran Stratagem/The Poison Sky and it brought something up to me, which is my very strange view on the Sontarans. As I’m guessing most of my followers know, I watched Classic Who when I was a kid in the 90s, and saw all the Doctors and most of the companions before the new series started. I didn’t however, see the Sontarans. I’d seen Daleks, Cybermen, multiple Masters, Silurians, Ice Warriors, Autons, etc, but never the Sontarans. Which meant I saw them in the new series first. And whenever I see classic stories with them, they just seem… wrong. Like if there was a Troughton found with the Weeping Angels, the iconography of the Sontarans is to me, a new series thing, and every time I see them, they bug me. I don’t really have a point, it’s just very odd…
Whenever someone insults any effect in Blakes 7 or Classic Who, all I can think is, at least it’s not this.
I’d much prefer Planet of the Ood if the humans weren’t cartoonishly evil. If it just showed then as normal people simply unable to see the error of their ways it would have been far more disturbing.
And I will defend them to my last breath.
This is a little photoshop side project i’ve been working on. The premise is what if the Tardis mixes up control rooms on the classic Doctor’s. The Tardis has hinted in the past that the old Control Rooms are never deleted just archived. She has also said due to the fact it’s a time machine she has also archived Control Rooms that haven’t been created yet.
