Loved this story, although there were a few things I wasn't happy about.  An alien outside the universe that can summon Timelords and so quickly and easily overpower them seems far-fetched - why haven't we seen more of these aliens elsewhere, and why was there an Ood and a few humans there, but no other race - seems odd.  I did love the idea of a misplaced TARDIS in the form of Idris though.

For that reason, this gets a 4/5 from me...

Another 5 from me for this one. I loved all the stuff with Idris in particular and the ending had me all teary. Its not something I would want to see again, but as a one off it was brilliant

I gave this a four. It's a brilliant story and a great concept that I think they did really well to pull off, but something about it just didn't quite click into place for me. I don't know what it is, but something just wasn't right.

I gave this a four. It's one of those stories I always like when I watch, but it always feels like an effort to watch in the first place

Full marks from me. This was an awesome story and didn't put a foot wrong for me. It had everything I look for in an episode

Ditto.
Suranne Jones was wonderful too.

I thought this was great, particularly Suranne Jones' performance. It would be great to have her return, but I guess it's unlikely given the ending. I gave it a 5

I very nearly went with a three, but stretched it to a four. An enjoyable enough story with a great turn from Suranne Jones, but aunt and unle were stupid and Michael Sheen was such a waste as House

Another 5 from me. I just love this story - great to see the Doctor & the TARDIS's relationship explored in such an inventive way. And Suranne Jones was fab.

I really, REALLY enjoyed this episode.  It was like a fun amusement park ride.  Suranne Jones was amazing and it was just such a fun episode.  Great stuff Smiley

5/5

Easily one of the best of NuWho for me Smiley My expectations for the episode (having seen the trailer) were low but I was absolutely blown away. Loved it.

Either this was the best Doctor Who story ever or it was one of the top five. Either way it gets the most 5 a story can get from me. I literally loved every single second of this. I was hoping and praying that the Neil Gaiman episode would be different and brilliant - and it was. This would have worked in any era, with any Doctor - we were just so lucky that it happened with this era and this Doctor.

I am going to spend the rest of the day imagining William Hartnell calling the TARDIS "Sexy". Oh Yes.
