Not a Quark
on 6 February 2014
It's not terribly good. If I were looking for a classical allusion I'd be thinking of the Ancient Athenians confronted by the Roman Army, but what we really have here is an attempt to replicate the success of the Daleks in a story that resembles the first Dalek story not a little - the pacifists threatened by the ruthless aggressors - only it's not nearly as good.
Lots of reason for this - the Dulcians are dull, the Dominators shout at each other - one of them being reactionary and sulky - and the Quarks just aren't as good as the Daleks; they don't look half as impressive, they're not nearly as mobile, and they sound far less scary.
And over five episodes the only critical factors seem to be the amount of stored power the Dominators have got, and how well Dominator Toba can keep his temper.
The Dominator costumes look good - that's a good bit.
