Hexagora is a failure, albeit an intriguing one. While I may give some stories that play it safe higher ratings here, I think there is value in a work that tries something more ambitious and simply falls short.
Unfortunately while this story has some wild ideas, several of them do not seem to naturally sit well together. Why has this society styled themselves as Tudors? Precisely how did they come up with their crazy plan in the first place? And then there are the missed opportunities such as the Doctor's engagement which feels surprisingly incidental to the story.
Overall, I felt there was some promise here and while the piece didn't quite work for me as a whole, I think it at least didn't play things safe and that is to be admired.
