Doctor Who Season 13 Episode 2 Recap

Season 13 episode 2 of ‘Doctor Who’ is titled ‘War of the Sontarans.’ In the episode, the Doctor lands in the middle of the Crimean War in the year 1855, along with Dan and Yaz. The Russians don’t exist anymore, and taking their place are the appallingly hostile Sontarans. The Flux event has not only affected the Doctor but has transported Officer Vinder to an ominous temple where he repairs a contraption sheltering beings called the Mouri as per commands given out by a floating Priest Triangle.

As an aftermath of the Flux combined with vortex energy, Yaz drops into the same temple as Vinder, and together, they discuss the origin of the Guardian priests of the Temple of Atropos. The planet these priests are from is responsible for manipulating time, as a consequence of which China and Russia might have been replaced with Sontar. The present-day Liverpool is invaded by a Sontaran ship that Dan’s parents temporarily fight off. But they ultimately succumb to the powerful forces of the Sontarans.

Dan communicates with the Doctor without stopping to grieve over the death of his folks. The Doctor learns that the Crimean War is a medium for the Sontarans to expand their hold over Earth. However, one of the Sontaran ships collides with the rest of the vessels, which in turn wipe out the entire fleet. Thus, the Earth continues to live.

Meanwhile, Vinder and Yaz run into Swarm, Azure, and Passenger. The Priest Triangle suddenly interrupts and declares that they’re banned from the place. However, Swarm destroys the triangle along with a group of time-locked priests. As TARDIS reappears, the Doctor heads to save Dan, but the vessel seems to have been rigged by an external presence. The Mouri have been saved, but Swarm ultimately ends up blasting Yaz using time energy.
