First review round: 6.1 weeks. Overall rating: 4 (very good). Outcome: Accepted.

Quick turnaround from editor. We felt time to resubmit was quite short given author availability so soon after the festive period but we managed this OK. Reviewer comments were in general helpful and did improve the article. Two reviewers had feedback that was genuinely helpful while the third review was mainly of the form of "use this word because I don't like that word" which is rather subjective and necessitated a lot of quite unproductive work to address.
