2.0 out of 5 stars Fifth Doctor & The Dad's Army Sontarans 20 Oct 2013
By Timelord007 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Positive.
Peter Davison & Sarah Sutton lift this from being a 1 star review.
The Sontarans debut story at Big Finish.

Negative.
The Sontarans debut story is boardline farcical, What was writer Alan Barnes thinking?
The jokey humour becomes annoying draining any Drama out of the story.

Audio Info 2 CD 4 part Running time 120 minutes, Behind scenes interviews, Music, Trailer.

Review.
This is difficult for me as being a hardcore Doctor Who fanboy most my life to review a Doctor Who product negatively hurts my soul, Oh well here goes.

Heroes Of Sontar is The Sontarans debut at Big Finish & you'd think that all the stops would be pulled out to give the galactic potatoheads some great drama & battle scenes.

Nope!!!

Instead we get a Dad's Army version's of Sontarans whom are awful, So bumbling & incapable it's a wonder they survived in space this long.

The plot, Arh yes the plot, Seven Sontarans are sent to a barren desolate world were they have sealed instructions from The Field Marshall for there next mission.

The problem with this The Sontarans are not the most greatest warriors in the fleet & here lies part of the problem as the Sonarans are meant to be a race of fierce warrior's from the Sontaran Empire not the bungling buffoons that are on display here.

The Doctor, Nyssa, Tegan & Turlough also land on the barren plant were Nyssa becomes infected & the Doctor, Tegan, Turlough race against time to find a cure for there friend & the secrets of the planet is finally revealed.

(sing-song) "Who do you think you are kidding Mr. Rutan?"

I love `Heroes of Sontar'! This is the one with the Dad's Army Sontarans! I really enjoyed this story with the Fifth Doctor and team vs. the war-mongering troll-like Sontarans. It's a very funny story and the first time the Sontarans appear in a Big Finish `Doctor Who' play.

This story stars Peter Davison, Sarah Sutton, Janet Fielding and Mark Strickson as the Doctor, Nyssa, Tegan and Turlough in their continuing adventures as a team. The story is about the Doctor and his friends arriving on the planet Samur, where twenty years ago it was the Sontarans furthest reach into Rutan space. Pretty soon, the TARDIS team are not alone as a platoon of seven Sontarans has arrived on Samur under special orders. With Sontarans and a deadly old curse to deal with, it's a race against time as Nyssa is slowly dying of a purple moss that's killing her.

The Sontarans are one of my favourite monsters from `Doctor Who' brilliantly created by Robert Holmes. I enjoyed watching adventures such as 'The Time Warrior', 'The Two Doctors' and 'The Sontaran Strategem'/'The Poison Sky'. I've recently written my own Sontaran story set in Stockbridge with the Doctor and Nyssa. I was really excited and looking forward to hearing their Big Finish debut and especially with the Doctor, Nyssa, Tegan and Turlough. Alan Barnes tells a cracking good story with the Doctor, Nyssa, Tegan and Turlough against these Dad's Army Sontarans.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Right, right ..." "Left I think it was, sir" 12 Sep 2011
By Keen Reader TOP 100 REVIEWER

I had to laugh listening to this - the Sontarans sound like a cross between Blackadder's hapless cronies and Dad's Army. With that, and with genuinely funny lines, this starts off as a definitely humorous story. A Sontaran crew with a hapless Major are sent behind enemy Rutan lines to the Samur - funnily enough, where the Tardis has just landed. But why is Samur not as the Doctor remembers?

I was surprised at first that the Sontarans were so far from what they always seemed to have been in the tv series - but this is explained in the course of the story; and why they are so different,and what is so special about the 7 who are sent to Samur on a `special mission' is also explained. I enjoyed the fact that these Sontarans were so distinct in their behaviours and mannerisms and had back-stories - they seemed to be more `real' than perhaps in earlier stories. But while the humour may seem gratuitous at first, it becomes part of a story that is definitely not humorous, and is tinged with horror and a little sadness.

The only grumble I have, and one of the reasons I listened to this story twice through, is that (and I'm writing somewhat cryptically here so as not to introduce a spoiler) the voice of a character in the latter part of the story is somewhat indistinct and therefore it's hard to hear exactly what is said - a little disappointing there.

The Doctor and his companions are in fine form - particularly Tegan, who hasn't learned that sometimes it's better to say nothing at all - and the interaction between them all is great. Turlough even gets to be a little more than his usual self in this story. And at the end, as the Tardis fades into the space-time continuum, Samur is changed - and the listener is left feeling a little sad about the poignancy of the story.

Fantastic story - wonderful characters, brilliantly played - highly recommended.
