The time and space traveling Doctor has faced his fare share of alien races over his fifty year run, everything from Daleks to Cybermen, Autons to Ice Warriors, The Weeping Angels to The Silence, but here's a closer look at the race of clone troopers, The Sontarans (Doctor Who's very own Mr. Potato Head), across the years.
The Sontarans are a brutal race of humanoid clone warriors, bred for one purpose, war. They have a distinctive dome-shaped head, stocky build (due to the denser gravity on their home planet of 'Sontar') and only three fingers on each hand. They were created for the BBC sci-fi series by writer Robert Holmes and first appeared in the 1973 serial 'The Time Warrior'.
If you like this alien race, be sure to also check out the Doctor's classic arch-foes, the Daleks through the ages, plus The Ice Warriors now and then.
