This is a certainly a story that gets a lot of flack. While it does have it's flaws, it has some great moments, and when Arabella Weir gets to the heart of The Doctor's character, she pulls it off with aplomb.
While The Doctor and a her friends are heavy drinkers, the hangovers and vomiting that accompany it are more than what was necessary, they could have been toned down while still getting the idea across.
A shout out goes to Toby Longworth and David Tennant for their excellent portrayal of timelords in this story.
On the whole, this is a story with a wonderful conceit (The Doctor being so terrifying that he flees from his trial and hides on earth), a strong lead actress with a role that shines despite some weaker material, this story should at least be listened to once, and not completely avoided.
