The Dominators (Doctor Who Series 6 Story 1)

I used to have a soft spot for The Dominators and The Krotons. In a dearth of Patrick Troughton stories they were surely better then nothing. The problem is that The Dominators pretty much IS nothing. Apparently cut down from 6 episodes it still feels awfully long the plot would struggle to fill a modern 45 minutes story and the peaceful Dulcians are annoying to a curtain clad man.

The redeeming feature are single. The two Dominators being physically, well, dominating. Aside from this everything else is drawn out, tedious and dull. This story came close to derailing the project and is a world away from how I remember it.

I still have a soft spot for The Dominators. The Labrea Tar Pits.

The Mind Robber next. Now that one WAS good… wasn't it?
