This review is from: Doctor Who - The Dominators [DVD]  (DVD)
I *want* to be kind about this DVD. I mean, there's plenty to celebrate about it - it's one of a very limited number of Patrick Troughton Doctor Who stories available that wasn't wiped in the 1960s. But when you think about what *was* wiped instead, it's hard to forgive it. The plot is tedious and its contemporary shortcomings loud ("Why is that old man in a dress being chased around a quarry by kids in fridge-box monster costumes for two hours?"). The bonus features are good, but brief in both duration and seeming experience in watching five very slow episodes that don't really take anyone anywhere. For collectors only, who know why it's important this exists and is restored and respected (which, begrudgingly, it is).
