BLOOPERS! – The Dominators

Having only recently seen this story on DVD – via LoveFilm, no way am I buying this for £13, it can wait til after crimbo when its a fiver like Delta! – I did toy with calling this Blooper post The Boom Shadow Blues as there`s hundreds of the buggers!

I dunno who was on boom duty when these eps were recorded but he was obviously either a traineee or just out of Boom Mic Operator School. Check these bloopers out, but be warned – there are a lot of `em!

EPISODE ONE
Not too sure what this first one is – a torn cyclorama perhaps? – but I`m sure we weren`t meant to see it!

Okay, maybe I`m being a bit picky, but you`d think someone would have patched the TARDIS door up – there`s a dirty great chunk of it missing ffs!

If only they`d had translights back in the old days…

And here`s our first BS – Boom Shadow – the first of many! So that`s one…

And here`s the second…

And here`s the third…

And the fourth…

Hooray, something different! Here you can see the power cable that lights up the gun…

Oh look, BS number Five!

And that`s only episode one! There`s even more in…

EPISODE TWO
To start off with, here`s BS #6…

and BS #7…

and #8…

You can see the crew reflected in this Dulcian monitor, which is the most interesting thing in this scene…

That`ll be the edge of the set then…

it`s a bit hard to spot but this is BS #9

Spot the wire that lights up the gun…

and again…

Boom Shadow #10…

BS#11…

[You don`t suppose that Zoe and Cully, you know, when he took her off to get changed… nah, she couldn`t have. Could she? Lucky old Cully if she did!]

This one`s probably my favourite – not only is the front part of the transporter thingy missing but the door shuts before Balan gets to the controls. In fact it nearly traps him in the doorway!

Looks like the Dominators keep a TV Camera handy… either that or it`s Rago`s pet snake off for a quick slither…

here`s BS#12…

Zoe, you need to do your zip up, luv…

[Maybe she got dressed in a hurry. Are you sure she and Cully didn`t…?]

EPISODE THREE

Spot the TV Camera! [see, I knew it wasn`t a Rago`s Pet Reptile last time…]

BS #13

BS #14

BS #15

BS #16

EPISODE FOUR

Looks like The Dominators use scaffolding in the construction of their spaceships!

BS #17

Here you can see the shadow of a camera on Zoe`s back…

BS #18

BS #19

EPISODE FIVE

Looks like Pat had a go at drawing that diagram in rehearsal…

BS #20

Zoe`s zip`s broken. Again.[you don`t suppose Cully had seconds, do you?]

In total there are 36 bloopers for this story, which is a record. And 20 of them alone are boom shadows!
