OK, I finally got around to getting back to this series.
It's a good thing that I did. Sirens of Ceres takes a little detour from the expected monster of the week coming through the time machine and the series is better for it. I felt the story was better written than the predecessors and the way of addressing conformity/non-conformity was addressed in an interesting manner.
Wow, some hints about K–9's activities before it arrived in this time zone. The eponymous Bounty Hunter was so clichéd, but I need to remember that this is targeted at little children. I think the third and fourth episodes are stronger than the first two by a little bit.
A slight improvement on the first two episodes, but the Korven seemed to remind me of the Tharils from Warrior's Gate for some reason. Otherwise a standard episode for this serial.
Not much in the second part either. K–9 spends quite a bit of time incapacitated. True to character, huh? The characters are annoying to me. Doesn't bode well for the series so far.
The BBC's 'Doctor Who website will begin a new story on the site starting tomorrow (Oct. 29th). It will be serialized over several days on the website and will be written by Mark B. Oliver. The story is a Halloween themed story to fit in with the season.
