It's not a bad story but it's not the best either, Matt smith gives a great performance and that's about it. My strongest feeling about this is disappointment that Matt Smith didn't get a truly great cyberman story.

For some reason I don't understand, hardly anyone rates this story. It is something of a whipping boy for disgruntled Whovians.

It has a number of really scary sequences, the milieu of the abandoned galactic fairground is wonderful.

The battle between Smith and Mr Clever is absorbing and the characters of Webley and Porridge are two excellent creations and very well acted.

The only faults I find with it are that the upgraded cybermen are too perfect and the cybernisation is too much like the Borg from Star Trek Next Generation.

A story that's more disappointing than bad. There's some good stuff in this episode, starting with Matt Smith's dual performances as the Doctor and the Cyberdoctor. Some of the redesigns on the Cybermen are quite interesting and scary.

Where the episode falls down is in several areas: Poor child acting and a less than satisfactory resolution are big pitfalls. The other one is that it's emblematic of the lack of character development with Clara at this point. Nothing we'd seen in Clara in other stories like, "Hide," or "Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS" indicated Clara had a militarily strategic mind, yet she takes command of this ragtag group of rebels and leads them with remarkable precision. Thus, showing that in the view of the writers, the question with Clara wasn't as much, "What would/Can Clara do in a given situation?" but rather, "What do we need Clara to be this week?" Overall, this disappointing not only because of Gaiman's great first script for Doctor Who back in Series 6 but because this is far below what we expect from this caliber of writer.

If you watch this carefully you can see the actual moment Matt Smith decides to quit.

If you watch even more carefully you can see how "mega talent" Neil Gaiman borrows freely from five sources to stitch together another "masterpiece".

It's a good episode ruined by lazy writing, ropey acting and one of the single worst child actors in the history of people like will smith shoehorning terrible child actors into films and television.
