I have gone with a three, but it's probably closer to 3.5. Not a bad story all in all, but it wasn't the big explosive return we were promised and there is something about it which I can't put my finger on that I am not so keen on.

I haven't actually watched this episode again since it aired and don't actually have any desire to watch it again so going to have to go with a 2

I went with a four. I was a bit unsure of it on first watch but it's definately one that's grown on me over time.

I went with 3, although I agree 3.5 seems more applicable.

It's decent enough, but nothing spectacular.

I've gone with four. My problem with this is that it doesn't feel like a proper episode. The story is stretched out over 45 minutes when really the stuff of substance that is covered could have just taken up 10-15 minutes at the beginning of another episode. It seems mostly filler. It is enjoyable though.

I agree Roranicus, when I think of what actually happens in the episode, I can't think of much at all

I think Roranicus was spot on with what she said. I've given it a 3

3/5

My problem with this, which I think is more evident once you have seen the finale, is that the Tesselector stuff was shoehorned in to a story, which when you think about it makes no sense whatsoever, as a way of letting Moff off the hook of a deus ex machina ending. The stuff in the story that was relevent was good, but the rest was just hollow. As someone else said above, this could have been done in 15 minutes.
