Disappointment
8 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've seen reviews of Dreamland that complain of the animation. The animation of Dreamland is clearly based on computer game CGI. Not great, but certainly of its time.

The animation of Infinite Quest is also of its time, not great either, although given over to impressive visual effects in the foreground and background. But the real difference between these two Doctor animated episodes has to do with something far more basic. Dreamland, whatever its visual weaknesses, tells a strong story with a discernible beginning - middle - end. Infinite Quest - does not.

In fact the narratology of Infinite Quest is very similar to that of The Pescatons, jumping and skipping over essential details. But Pescatons is presented as narrated by the Doctor himself, and the voice of Tom Baker covers a multitude of sins. One can listen to Pescatons with the brain on hold and still have a fine time.

Infinite Quest isn't so lucky. Events we expect disappear. Cliff-hangers end in 'deux-ex-machina' cul-de-acs. At the end everything is explained - yet nothing much has happened.

I don't blame the actors, animators, or supporting personnel. This is the problem that the writer, producer, and director must own. Either Doctor Who is a series worthy of proper storytelling, or it is a throwaway for a quick buck.

Recognizing that this episode was clearly intended for children, I'll give it a little extra credit. It is certainly watchable. But I expected more - a solid story taking advantage of the animated media. I don't feel we get that here.
