Full marks. I realise it's not a massively popular story, but I thought it was excellent

This one gets a four. The story was great and the supporting characters were excellent. The Silurian makeover I was fine with, though I would have been happy with the old look ones.

I went with a three. It could have been cut down to be shorter, or at least had some more in it to make the time feel more full. I enjoyed the story but it suffered from what a lot of the two parters suffered from in that there just wasn't enough plot to fill the time

5/5 for me. I loved this story straight away and I still do. I wasn't hindered by the classics while watching because I didn't know a Silurian should look any different and I hadn't seen them in any other story to compare them to. This was just a brilliant story

I gave it maximum.  I love the classic Silurians, but I think the revamp worked beautifully, and the story had a classic Silurian feel - in those stories, it was never really about "beating the bad guys".

I went with a four for this. Liked it a lot and thought it rattled along at a good old pace for a two parter Smiley As with Nyki, I thought the re-imaging of the Silurians worked really well and great supporting cast.

I went with a four. I liked this story a lot and I never understood why it got so much stick. This was the first time that I had seen the Silurians and I thought they were great, so I hope we get to see more of them as a race in the new series and not just one off characters like Vashtra, awesome as she was

Giving this one a 5. I really enjoy watching these two through again and loved seeing the Silurians for the first time Smiley
