A one from me. I hate to be so negative about Who because I always try to look for the good in a story, but for me pretty much everything was wrong. Adam was wrong. The Editor was wrong. The story was wrong. Everything just felt wrong. I did however like the clicky fingers ending

Saber I promise I'm not being deliberately contrary Cheesy I really liked this one - it was no "Family of Blood" but it was enjoyable and Simon Pegg always gives good value. I think Adam (although a ****) provided a nice counterpoint to Rose. Rose would never abuse her position in the TARDIS for commercial gain (though she did abuse it for personal gain in Father's Day but thats not for here). The scale and the sets were good and overall I liked the feel of this. I gave it 4 Smiley

See, I think Simon Pegg is what I disliked about The Editor the most. I can just never buy into him (though he was ok in Star Trek).

I love the purpose and reasoning behind Adam and I think it was a brilliant way of showing that not everyone is cut out to be on the team, so to speak, but while there are often morons/villains/whatever that you can enjoy watching, he just wound me up

I went with a three. Again it sort of felt like a cheap episode, but I didn't mind The Editor or the story overall. Adam was really annoying and the Jagrafess was rubbish, but there were some great sci fi elements to it.

I gave this one a 1. I really didn't like it. I thought the story was a bit silly and I wasn't keen on most of the characters. I did like the weird nurse and I liked the ending at Adam's house, but other than that this one didn't really work for me.

4 from me for this story. I didn't like the Jagrafess, but it had so little screen time that it hardly matters. I thought Simon Pegg was brilliant as the Editor and I loved the overall story. I don't like Adam, but I do really like his purpose in the show and what they were trying to convey with him being there.

I gave this one a three. It felt like more of a cheap episode than Boom Town for me. There were some great parts and some awful parts which sort of balances it out and gained it it's three

4. Good story, Simon Pegg was excellent, and it had Tamsin Greig! Sure Adam was irritating, but he was supposed to be, so it worked perfectly. Not quite great enough to get full marks, but pretty good nonetheless.

Three. The plot was nothing special but we learned that not everybody is TARDIS worthy. Some nice ideas for new technology and a tie in to the finale.
