Summing up the series in one word, I'd say it was solid. At the very least, better than VIII on the whole. At its best, on a par with perhaps some of the episodes from the first four or so series. It doesn't match up to the overall strength of most pre-VII RD - which was always going to be tough - but it has its moments, enough to stand its ground, and is a good series in its own right. It's difficult to pick a favourite episode because they all have different strengths and flaws... - Trojan: a very good main plot, a less convincing B-plot. - Fathers and Suns: two great linked strands in Pree and especially the highlight that is the Lister-Lister scene, but let down by the bot and the awful out-of-place vending machine C-Plot, which was the low point of the series. A divided episode of real contrasts. - Lemons: solid; one of the few that seemed consistent in quality throughout. Didn't really 'peak', but at the same time was the first ep where I came away with no real negatives. Re-use of the S2 Kryten incidental music cue was a lovely extra; I immediately recognised it. - Entangled: an eventful episode - good amount of exploration, some clever ideas. Just not sure about the music during the climax; I thought that was too overbearing for the scene. On the whole, this was actually a pretty great ep. - Dear Dave: an early series feel with the mail arrival and connected plot, which was its best quality. The main cast dialogue was better than the vending machine business IMO - but at least in this case, none of the latter stuck out like a sore thumb, and was enjoyable enough! - The Beginning: a really good, interesting final episode. Opportunity for both action and a real sense of threat, and a true showcase of model shots. Loved the opening scene idea, an especially strong start. The climax - with a risky plan to hit the targets, and by essentially making them backfire - just vaguely reminiscent of a bit of a White Hole / Inquisitor mix, respectively. Perhaps not too keen on the earlier scene with the two simulants, is all. But otherwise, a really engaging episode to round-off the series. Nice ending line for the fans! There are ideas throughout the series that draw some similarity with classic episode plots, but still unique enough that I don't see it as a weakness. I think the slight familiarity does a lot story-wise, in lending Series X an identifiable RD feel.
