I’ve enough time mocking the outfits of the Dominators, which they do richly deserve. But let’s take a moment to reflect on the curtain-clad Dulceans and their horrible fashion sense.
Truly just…ugh. Moving on.
So there are a couple of neat moments in this episode, but it’s pretty dull overall. The Dominators continue to try and enslave the population while the Doctor and Jamie try to convince the locals that something terrible is afoot.
I wish this was a better episode. The overall story isn’t bad, but there are a lot of little things in this episode that drag it down, and it doesn’t help that the cliffhanger at the end of this episode was basically the same as the previous one.
I do also get a bit frustrated that we keep cutting back to the Dulceans. They really aren’t that engaging, and watching a bunch of old men in drapes discussing philosophy is only interesting if they’re named Socrates and Plato.
Oh, well. Three down, two to go. Yeah, oddly, this is a five part story.
