Who? I liked it. Seeing John Simm looking like he's been slapped after hearing but with 15 satellites
would make the episode great alone, even if it wasn't already.>threat was way out of proportions
Eh. Bear in mind, this is before the entire day of the doctor stuff, so any idea that the Daleks have returned effectively means they won the Time War, not the doctor. This eldritch, space destroying conflict that wiped the most fearsome race out of existence apart from all the boring more impressive races that "went into exile"
described over four seasons gives the implication that if anything malicious survived that, it needs to die, by any means necessary.
You could of course do more deaths, but bear in mind this is BBC before 9, and they had Torchwood at the time to deal with darker stuff. Which was a very mixed bag to say the least, never thought I'd see a gangland execution of a Cyberman and using barbecue sauce to get a pterodactyl to attack it would happen in the same episode
