Check Out the Trailer and Synopsis for Doctor Who: Flux — War of the Sontarans

Tonight’s episode of Doctor Who: Flux promises plenty of Sontaran action as we head into the War of the Sontarans — and the BBC has released an exciting trailer to whet our appetites.

Here’s the synopsis:

The Doctor has an unexpected encounter with one of her deadliest enemies when the Sontarans become a new faction in the Crimean War. As the British army goes into pitched battle with the warlike aliens, the Doctor and her companions seek the help of renowned nurse Mary Seacole (Sara Powell), while an ancient temple hides mysterious secrets.

What is the Temple of Atropos? Who are the Mouri?

And here’s that trailer:

Though I personally have plenty of issues with Chris Chibnall’s dialogue, Commander Ritskaw’s “I accept your offer of a massacre” is blummin’ wonderful.

Great to see the Sontarans en masse too!

And this will be the first full serial with the Sontarans since Series 4’s The Sontaran Stratagem/ The Poison Sky (though Strax has appeared multiple times, including in A Good Man Goes to War, The Crimson Horror, and Deep Breath).

Directed by Jamie Magnus Stone, Flux: War of the Sontarans will will air tonight (7th November 2021) at 6:15pm on BBC1.
