The Tomb of the Cybermen - I forget the amount of causal racism in that story - shifty foreign types and... Toberman... yes I know nobody would have batted an eyelid at the time and the past is a distant country and all that but.. Toberman.

Oh, man that dates the story so bad.
How do you date a story about time travel?

The Sontaran Experiment.

A good little two parter, shot entirely on location. There can't be many episodes that have no studio shots.
IIRC, "Survival" was shot entirely on location.

The Android Invasion (Fourth Doctor).

The last appearance of Harry Sullivan and Sgt. Benton and unfortunately they had little to nothing to do. The story is good, though when the first alien first appeared I thought it was a Sontaran, but resolves itself too quickly.
This seemed to be an era of aliens that are vaguely reminiscent of Sontarans. I also felt that way about the Zygons in "Terror of the Zygons." And if you look at the forehead right around the eyes, the Draconians from "Frontier in Space" also look a lot like the Sontarans.
