A bit of a shame this one. It wasn't as spectacular as a special needs to be, it needs to be big and bombastic, or at least I want it to be.
Spoilers from here.
The stuff with Ryan's dad was dull and really hit the pace and the microwave solution was silly.
I did however like the new dalek stuff. The controlling was pretty freaky which was good and I did quite like the rustic look (though it didn't appear to have the time to do anything like that complicated). And the dalek taking out the troops was terrifying and spectacular, the new extermination effect is superb. I do not even have a problem with the scout being taken out by the 9th century army, if there were enough of them and they had the right plan it could work though there would be a lot of sacrifice which the story implied but maybe not heavily enough. My only problem with the dalek was its stormtrooper aim, you cant have it take down soldiers them miss the Doctor because plot. Some may not have noticed but I did I'm afraid.
So overall it was OK but quite dull. Not what a special needs to be.
