Saturday at 11PM EST The Sontaran Experiment both episodes
Have I told you about the time that I fought a Sontaran in the far future? No? It was a spectacular battle of wits between myself and Field Marshall Styre, the result of which would decide the fate of Earth and humanity! You see, Styre was running experiments on humans in order to determine their weaknesses, so that the Sontaran War Fleet could invade. I thought I did rather well myself, but I suppose you'll just have to watch and see for yourself.
