I love Gaiman. That said this was a bad flop. I don’t like this habit in mods era to make classic enemies broken. The cybermen bow assimilate like borg and this break the suspension of belief just like asylum of the daleks lame new dalek nano infection rubbish , please don’t ...

Still hints of visual magic of Neil’s imaginative style here and there. The story is pretty.
The young characters are excruciatingly bad and almost make me want to stop watching. Lots of cheesy moments scattered throughout.

One extra positive though that I can give is the cybernats , this is a idea that boosts the cybermen in a not to far flung manner like their adaptation ability. This should be reused , it’s scary that it could get in your nose or mouth and latch to your brain !

Anyway I think this story has quality scattered around among its bungling mess.
A shame as I had high hopes for Neil’s second addition to the show.
One hopes he’d consider doing a novel some day !!

This is a fun, entertaining and interesting adventure with a great performance by Matt Smith as the Doctor fighting being taken over by the Cyber Leader. The chess games against a Cyberman are perhaps influenced by the excellent 8th Doctor audio adventure The Silver Turk.

The flaws are the slightly underwhelming children and the weird ease with which Clara becomes a confident military leader. This is not the greatest plot or situation but the Cybermen are impressive and exciting, the script and action are very enjoyable, Warwick Davies and Jason Watkins are fine guest stars and Smith's acting is great so overall I think this is a pretty strong episode. It is not up to the standard of Neil Gaiman's earlier story The Doctor's Wife but I think it is underrated.

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.
