Doctor Who: The Dominators

It seems that I somehow managed to neglect blogging about the episode “The Dominators” after listening to the episode as an audiobook some months ago. Here are my thoughts on it! The episode “The Dominators” sees the Doctor landing on a world that has embraced pacifism completely. The planet has no prisons, and an island [Read More…]
