Dominion was the twenty-second novel in the BBC Eighth Doctor Adventures series. It was written by Nick Walters, released 10 May 1999 and featured the Eighth Doctor, Sam Jones and Fitz Kreiner.

Publisher's summary[]

When the Doctor loses both Sam and the TARDIS after an encounter with a mysterious dimensional anomaly, he finds himself affected in a very fundamental way, doubting his own powers and making crucial errors of judgment.

Stranded amongst the forests and lakes of southern Sweden in the summer of 1999, it quickly becomes clear to the Doctor and Fitz that something unusual — and dangerous — is afoot. Fitz finds himself acting the hero as the search for Sam gets them involved with investigations into strange disappearances — and manifestations of even stranger creatures.

Events quickly spiral out of control as the Doctor and Fitz become entangled with a secret deep beneath the forest, a secret which could save Sam and an entire doomed alien race — but destroy the Earth in the process.

The Doctor[]



  • The area called the "Dominion" is a pocket universe which is being eaten up by the "Blight" (actually "our" universe breaking through into it).


  • C19 is the part of the British government that funded UNIT UK. It also takes alien technology and analyses and adapts it to benefit humanity.


  • The Doctor reels off what could have affected the TARDIS as being "..anything — vortex infarction, time scoop..."
  • The TARDIS's original shape is a light grey cube three metres along each side.


  • Professor Nagle thinks the Telecongruency Warp Generator can be used as a matter transmitter.
