      Scott Bryan BBC.com Drag Race UK is the best Drag Race version of all of them, currently. I just wonder how much longer the show itself is going to continue for. Feb 8, 2021 Full Review Louis Staples Independent (UK) The format might not be revolutionary, but what makes the show so special, beyond the stunning costumes, razor-sharp one-liners and filthy innuendos, is the contestants. Rated: 5/5 Jan 15, 2021 Full Review Rebecca Nicholson Guardian I am grateful that Drag Race UK found a way back on to our screens. It is early days to play favourites, although I am developing particular soft spots for London-via-Lancashire's Veronica Green, Worksop's A'Whora. Rated: 4/5 Jan 15, 2021 Full Review Beau North The Spool Giving the queens an unprecedented seven months to hone and perfect (or not) their skills makes this not only the most memorable season of Drag Race but an outstanding season of television.

      Natalie N Compared to the first season, the second season has really upped the ante. In the first season, it was pretty clear that Vivienne was going to win by a long shot, and not everyone was polished. This season, every eliminated queen has been sad to see go. Ginny Lemon's exit was a particular shocker, and it felt like an All Stars season when all the queens returned. Tia's evolution and friendship with A'Whora has been a standout of the season, and it's great to see queens supporting each other. Lawrence Cheney's humor has been an absolute delight to watch, and it's great that they brought back Joe Black. I loved Tayce's personality and has one of the best quotes of the season. The talent has been top-notch, with queens singing live and really impressing the judges. The looks this season have been some of the best ever, even from Ru and Michelle. The competing same outfits with A'Whora and Sister Sister was a particular highlight. The music producer who came in at the end of the season was super funny and really helped with the challenge. At times, it was hard to predict who would win the lip sync, such as with Tia vs. Astina. The only disappointing aspect of the season was the snatch game, but the creative mini-challenges more than made up for it. Tayce should've won that one challenge! It was hard to see A'Whora go home, but overall, this has been the best season of Drag Race - ever, period (and I've seen them all). Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/13/23 Full Review Audience Member My favorite show!!! Love it and watch it over and over again!!! Good fun to watch!!
