Critic Consensus: A step back from the previous installment, "Praxeus" is a mystery box that doesn't add up to much, but it's still a fun enough return to basics for Doctor Who.
Critic reviews for Praxeus
It's an hour that finally strikes a strong narrative balance between the Doctor and her three companions, giving each member of Team TARDIS something significant to do and allowing them to have a real impact on the story.
Overall a rather harmless mixed bag of an episode, but I'd still lean towards good overall, just not a story I'm likely to rush and revisit...
Caveats aside, this episode feels comfortable in itself in a way Doctor Who hasn't for some time - that, and finally giving Yaz something to do, makes for an enjoyable story.
Admittedly, it's a little strange that we don't get any real fallout from last week's game-changing episode. But when the results are this fun it's hard to mind too much.
