It’s not television I would go out of my way to watch, but if I catch it by chance I have to watch the whole of it. I am trying to understand why that is. There is something camp about it: the whole theatricality of going up in a lift and the ominous voiceover and that they are referred to as dragons – there’s something mythical being invoked. There’s the great joy of really ingenious ideas, and of really terrible ideas. And best of all there’s the performance of the dragons themselves: the tiny microgestures and status plays and weird reptilian glances and smirking and snarling.
