These six real ‘hide behind the sofa’ collections bring together episodes of the scariest and most iconic monsters from Doctor Who’s classic and recent series.

Each title concentrates on a deadly enemy – The Daleks, Cybermen, Sontarans, The Master, Davros and the Silurians – and features two separate stories from popular incarnations of the Doctor, including Matt Smith, David Tennant, Tom Baker and Jon Pertwee. These collections are perfect for younger viewers just discovering the scary delights of fifty years of Doctor Who.

The Monster Collection: The Sontarans

The Time Warrior (1973)
Missing scientists have been kidnapped by a Sontaran, Linx, and taken back to medieval England, where they are working under hypnosis to repair his crashed spaceship. Starring Jon Pertwee as the Third Doctor.
The Sontaran Stratagem and The Poison Sky (2008)
With planet Earth choking under the poison sky, the Doctor must stop the Sontarans’ threat to the planet. Starring David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor.

    Probably gonna get this one cos i’ve never watched The Time Warrior! All I know about it is that there’s a sontaran called linx kidnapping scientists back to medieval times and the introduction to Sarha Jane. Is it worth buying just to watch the time warrior? Cos if it’s a bad episode i won’t bother. But whovians apparently say its good.

    i already have the ‘bred for war’ boxset, which is absolutely brilliant, so there’s no point in me getting this.
