80's Sontaran Costumes (Doctor Who)


New Member
Hi all, I am trying to figure out what kind of material was used for the Sontarans in Doctor Who when they showed up in the mid eighties (The episode was called The Two Doctors.) I know the modern ones are made out of a sort of rubber foam, and these particular 80's ones look to be slightly different from the original 70's models.

At first I thought it was like a black tarp canvas, which i've got plenty of at home, but i'm not too sure...Especially when all you've got to work with is pre HD screencaps :unsure:

Heres a few pics for reference
