Editing this post with possible solution but want to leave it in case others have the same problem: I may have got this working - I manually created a blacklist.txt file in the appdata\pihole\pihole directory and Pi Hole seems to be getting a connection from my router now. I also completely wiped my appdata folder and started fresh with Docker. I think some setting files weren't getting created properly.
I seem to be having a problem with this container. I had it working and then decided I was going to see if IPv6 could be enabled. In short I broke it. After reinstalling several times fresh, I'm getting stuck. I can log into the Pi Hole admin interface but it seems to be getting stuck on dnsmasq: read/etc/pihole/gravity.list. There's also a warning about failed to load names from /etc/pihole/black.list: No such file or directory. After connecting PI hole as my dns I'm getting 0 connections in the admin console.
Here's my log:
