Loved this on first watch, but I am less fond of it one rewatch. The sets though were brilliant and I loved the Carrionites. I think its the portrayal of Shakespeare that I am less keen on when I rewatch it than anything else because the story is a good one. I love the Harry Potter references in it too

I enjoyed this - the one thing about it that really gets me is that they gave Shakespeare a Yorkshire accent, when everyone knows he was from the West Midlands.  The thing is, judging from the confidential, they were proud of that.  Why?

Definitely one of the top two stories of S3 in my opinion! Smiley

This one gets a three. I love the setting and visually it looks brilliant, but some of the story gets a bit silly and I think she portrayal of Shakespeare was a bit off

I went with a three on this one. It was enjoyable enough, but again there was something in there, not too sure what, that just really didnt work for me and doesnt make me want to rush to rewatch

I gave this one a 5. I felt like I should mark it lower, but I couldnt really think of anything that I disliked about it. It's not one of my favourites, but it ticks all the boxes and doesn't do anything to **** me off so I think a 5 is fair

God I love this episode!
Slate me if you like, but I love it from start to finish!
Shakespeare was hilarious "ooh, that's good", "hey, that's one of mine!", brilliant patter.
It had Christina Cole being gorgeous (well, some of the time) and was just a whole hill of fun.
full marks.

This one gets a four from me. Good story, but like others have said, I found Shakespeare quite annoying

I went with a three. Visually brilliant with some interesting themes, but the ending was rubbish and the story a bit boring
