I’ve noticed that this story seems to be rather divisive round these parts, so I thought I’d do a poll on it to assert what the general consensus truly is.

I veered between below average and piss poor and erred on the safe side by voting the former.

The thing is, I can watch it through easier than most Davison stories, there are some good scenes in there and the story does have a lot going for it. I think on balance there's enough stuff I like in between the stuff that makes me cringe and curl under.

And I could certainly never rate it as low as Series 11. There's only one classic story I reserve that rating for.

Rather good I think.

I fully recognise Bernard and Tanmann's objections to the story and some i do see my self to a degree (poor acting, the late introduction of the plot to attack the High Council of the Timelords) but on the whole i think its an entertaining action story which uses the daleks well and presents them as a serious threat, ruthless and really quite murderous in their efforts to achieve their aims. Much better than Planet, Death and Destiny. Revelation got me really enthused about the daleks for the first time in years. Destiny just bored me. With the sole exception of Revelation, Molloy was never used better as Davros in the tv series.

Robert and Tanmann's discussions about this story in another thread have been really interesting even if they run contrary to my own opinions. Long may they continue.

Fairly good.

Upon further consideration, I’d go for somewhere between nothing special and below average, though aspects of the narrative structure and plotting are truly piss poor. I’ll go for below average due to how many writing issues it has.

It’s also relatively well directed at times, though, and has the occasional very good scene.

I think it's crap. Well made, but crap. It pisses me off royally that this tends to get a free pass from mainstream fandom, who then turn around and shit all over Attack despite the latter being vastly superior in every department.

I feel like in the right frame of mind, it can be enjoyed as an mindless action romp, yet at the same time as with Warriors,  it feels like just another Earthshock clone and it does tend to leave one feeling hollow after watching it.

I would take it over most of the NuWho Dalek stories with the exception of Dalek.
