What did you think of their return? Worth waiting for or a load of hype over nothing? Should it have been a different classic monster we saw return or did you not care either way?

For me, bringing them back was a must and I would have liked to have seen it happen sooner, but I think they deserved a better story. As for whether it should have been them or something else, I like anything making a return so I didn't mind either way as long as it happened eventually. I think I would like to see them again but handled by Moff.

I was delighted to see them return, and I enjoyed the story.  I think I might have preferred a lots-of-Ice-Warriors story, but I can see the sense of reintroducing them in a more intimate way.  As long as we get lots of them later.

They definitely should have returned but I think they should have made more of a feature of it. They tried for so long to keep it a secret, which sometimes can be cool, but in this regard I think it would have been better to do a 'they are returning' type trailer or something of that sort. Remember before S5 started and the trailer where Amy and the Doctor are lying on the grass ended with the Silurian face popping out of the screen at the end? Something like that would have been good. Teasing their return but giving nothing away.

So yeah, glad they are back, the story was good, but it could have been better and a few more would have been nice. God I sound so ungrateful!

I'm very happy to see them back in the show and I think whether the story is a stinker or not it is still good to have them back.

I'm glad they were brought back because that sort of thing is always cool, but there are a couple of monsters/aliens I would have rather seen first.

They definitely should have returned, they just should have had a more original story and a better writer handlng them.

It's nice to have them back and I am glad they returned, but I just felt completely underwhelmed by the whole thing. I hope if they return they are given a better outing.

All they needed was a story a bit more fitting that made them feel more menacing, and perhaps more than one of them. I'm glad they returned though and I'm excited to see them again.
