I loved it. The first 5 minutes were slow but from then I was gripped from start to finish. That ending was brilliant

I gave it a 4. I was getting a bit confused throughout but another rewatch should set that right. Brilliant ending

I seem at the moment to have an entire Twitter timeline of people, one of whom is me, saying "What the ****?" I think that pretty much says it all.

Damn good episode though. Wasn't entirely impressed with last week's episode, but part 2 was brilliant.

I would imagine most of the people who saw are saying 'what the ****?'

Now, this is me being very picky and I greatly enjoyed that episode... but I only gave it 4 - Because I could break down almost every decision/plot turn/twist as I was going along and say why... I don't normally do that....

There were also a few moments where I went "Huh? Strange" As in, that doesn't work plot wise or that might be continuity... Need to rewatch though Smiley

Full marks from me. I loved it and that ending was great.

Jen was brilliant throughout. She gave me chills at times. It was also quiet uncomfortable in parts, but in a good way. When they sat the Doctor down on the barrel I thought they were going to execute him Shocked

I could have happily given it full marks for the ending alone, but I thought the whole episode was brilliant. It carried on nicely from where last weeks left off and it didnt lose pace or intensity. This two parter is one of my favourites

Er, well for me it scores higher than last week, and the points would have to be due to the ending, but er will give it a 4.... maybe cause I was tired, but I got lost!  Roll Eyes

A 5 from me. It was visually brilliant and compelling and interesting with great pace and a lovely pay off at the end. Very happy with that. This story has been great

I think peeps here are going to start thinking I'm ill....I gave it a 2.

Sorry, but throwing in Tom Baker & David Tennant soundbytes and a two minute scene at the end to set up the finale does not a good episode make.

Just as plodding & drawn out as part one, with the same issues I had for part one.

You are going to end up with Chris' Victor Meldrew crown, you are Grin

I do get where you are coming from though. Personally I really liked it, but for those who didnt, I can understand that a big twist at the end isnt enough to recover the story

Hang on, is there an actual crown? I want!!!  Evil

It's obviously cool that folk loved it, I won't begrudge anyone that, just for me it was a really flat story - didn't need two parts I don't think.

Interesting race study The Doctor conducted, mind you.

I went with a 5. I gave a four last week I think and this episode was much better. They seemed to know what to do with the characters more this week. Jen was absurdly brilliant throughout and Amy was really on form. I even felt like she was channelling Donna at some points which is never a bad thing. I was really pleased with it.

Oh and the last 5 minutes were brilliant!
