Doctor Who: The Sontaran Experiment

The episode “The Sontaran Experiment” is an interesting one when treated as a companion to “The Ark in Space.” While in the latter the story of Noah was from mythology, in this one, Space Station Nerva has become a legend, and thus viewed like Atlantis. And so Doctor Who, as so many times before, both relegates traditional tales to the realm of mythology, while also pointing out that sometimes stories about real things can become mythologized.

New details about the Sontarans – such as that they are produced in identical batches, and are a highly militaristic culture – are introduced. And we also learn that even such foes have weaknesses – in this case, not being used to the Earth’s gravity.
