Spoilers are precisely defined here. Rules vary by the story's medium. Info from television stories can't be added here until after the top or bottom of the hour, British time, closest to the end credits roll on BBC One. Therefore, fans in the Americas who are sensitive to spoilers should avoid Tardis on Sundays until they've seen the episode.

Information from PROSE: Doctor Who and the Sontaran Experiment needs to be added.

The Marshal was a high-ranking Sontaran to whom Field Major Styre reported on his assessment of human physical limitations (TV: The Sontaran Experiment) in 16087. (AUDIO: Wirrn Isle)


The Marshal seemed to be impatient at Styre's delays, which were holding up the invasion fleet. After Styre was killed, the Fourth Doctor contacted the Marshal and told him that, without Styre's report, they could not invade and the details of their plan were discovered. (TV: The Sontaran Experiment)

Behind the scenes[]

  • The Marshal appears only on Styre's video communications screen for his appearances in part two.
  • The Marshal sports two large bosses on the front of his collar — presumably to signify his rank.
