Neil Cross has now penned more than one story for the show, which gives us the chance to compare his efforts. Which was his best?

I'm one of the few who actually quite liked Rings, but I think that Hide was superior.

Definitely Hide, though I didn't hate Rings either.

I wasn't a fan of either, and I've only seen them the once so far.

But I've gone for Hide, as I at least remember it was better than Rings which was... meh

I've gone for Hide, which I loved apart from the ending.  Akhetan had its moments, but I felt it was a lot more flawed.

Hide. I didn't mind the other one but this had a plot

Looks like this is going to be very one sided. I didn't hate Rings but I thought it was a bit of a pointless story. This was way better.

I think Hide was the best of the two but it wasn't all that much stronger.

100% for Hide so far. It's definitely the better of the two and it's where my vote went also.

Still nothing for Rings. I've chosen Hide.

I liked both, but Hide was the better of the two

I've gone with Hide, too, but I don't understand the hate towards Rings. I quite liked it.

I like quite a few elements of it, but overall I don't think it lived up to its potential.
