Okay, so I took a break after The Wheel in Space as I attempted to decide if I had money in the budget for The Dominators. Thankfully, my local library had a copy of the DVD, so I get to save the money that I didn’t really have. Then we had Thanksgiving, which was a lot of fun. My wife and I hosted at our house this year and were able to squeeze fourteen people into a three bedroom house. It was cramped but a lot of fun. But you probably don’t care as much about that, so . . . Doctor Who.
I started watching The Dominators tonight. After series five, which was a lot of reconstructions, I thought I would be looking forward to this mostly-complete season. Sadly, I’m not. I feel like I’m dragging my feet to keep interest. I’m not sure if I’m just burned out going in to the holiday season or if I haven’t been enjoying Doctor Who as much as I did a year ago. In truth, I miss William Hartnell. Oddly enough, I find that I am also missing Russell T. Davies Doctor Who and that really surprises me.
Regardless, I’m pressing on. I haven’t heard good things about The Dominators and after the first episode I haven’t quite been sucked back in to the project with enthusiasm. But we will see. If nothing else, I’m only nine episodes away from The Invasion.
Has anyone reading this seen The Dominators? Should I dread it or is it surprisingly good in the end?
