UPDATE: The closing date for voting has been brought forward one day to Thursday 10th April, with the Round of 16 coming on Friday and Saturday instead.
Welcome back to the Doctor Who World Cup! Last week’s poll saw The Day of the Doctor smash into victory and you can view all the results as well as the stories that have currently qualified on our World Cup page.
The qualifiers are finished and it’s time for the group stages! The top four stories from each qualifier have gone through into the Group Stages. From there, all 32 episodes have been randomly selected into 8 different groups.
Today, voting begins on the first four groups!. The top two from each group of four stories progress into the knockout rounds, beginning with the round of 16 on Saturday 12th April. Eventually, two stories will reach the final, with the winner being crowned World Cup champion!
9 weeks of voting have decided these stories – but remember – only two stories from each poll will reach the knockouts. Now, it’s down to you. You can vote for your one favourite story from each of the four groups!
DW World Cup 2014 – Group A
DW World Cup 2014 – Group B
The final four groups will be posted at 6pm tomorrow. For one time only, the groups will be open for voting for two weeks, with voting closing on Friday 11th April.
