Subjective Rating: 7/10 (Good).
7/10 (points off for cinematography, special effects/design and music) c. 2.8/4 (Good).
One of the better stories, but not a particular favorite of mine. It’s the first appearance of the Sontarans, which look completely absurd but are one of the more cleverly thought out creatures in the show.
