The Claws of Axos is well produced in most aspects with some nice sets and nice, different aliens. They disguise themselves as attractive and friendly humanoid beings but are actually hideous non-humanoid monsters. The design of them is very good.
It is another example of The Master getting in over his head trying to work with an alien race to bring death and destruction to The Doctor and humanity. There is very good stuff in each episode but also less impressive stuff. It never really goes reaches excellence being a decent but unexceptional (for Doctor Who) story.
I find the quite bizarre cameo character Pigbin Josh a pointless and silly addition but overall there is nothing bad in this adventure. It just does not ever catch fire into Doctor Who magic territory.
