Just about give it a 5.
Reservations because I don't think it is as good as the Zygons and there are a lot of things that don't make sense, especially in the final episode. Exactly what was the missile supposed to do? Just allow Sutekh to emerge from the rubble? But it the end he tried to cross through the portal, so why couldn't he do that already? It seems to me that the Osirans didn't really do a very good job of jailing Sutekh, leaving a portal through which he could exert mental influence, and then he can be freed if you just solve a few puzzles. They didn't think it through!
My reason for giving it a 5 is that although I don't think the script was that great it was all so well executed. Tom Baker is giving one of his best performances as the Doctor and is playing off Sarah Jane perfectly, the other performances are great, the music is great, Sutekh although maybe a little one-dimensional is perfectly done . . . what else can I say? It won't make my top ten or probably my top 20, but I think it still merits a 5 for everything it gets right.
