Doctor Who: Death in Heaven – Poll Results + Full Series 8 Leaderboard

For the past week you’ve been voting in our two polls for Death in Heaven – our ‘rate the episode’ poll and our Question of the Week poll. We’ve now closed both polls and you can view the results below:

First up, our rate the episode poll. It wasn’t quite as positive as part one (view those results here), with a slightly more mixed reaction. Despite that, nearly half the voters still gave the series finale full marks:
  • Absolutely amazing – 46.62%
  • Very good – 25%
  • OK – 12.84%
  • Not too great – 8.78%
  • Awful – 6.76%
It’s the final episode, so we have the final places for our Series 8 leaderboard, showing how TGT voters ranked the episodes. Death in Heaven didn’t quite reach the heights of Dark Water, narrowly slotting in at number eight:
All scores are average scores, out of 5.
  1. Listen – 4.54
  2. Flatline – 4.48
  3. Mummy on the Orient Express – 4.47
  4. Dark Water – 4.43
  5. Deep Breath – 4.20
  6. The Caretaker – 4.0
  7. Time Heist – 3.9595*
  8. Death in Heaven – 3.9594
  9. Into the Dalek – 3.87
  10. Robot of Sherwood – 3.66
  11. Kill the Moon – 3.53
  12. In the Forest of the Night – 3.35
It came in a third of the way through the series and has held on ever since – Steven Moffat’s Listen is your Series 8 leaderboard winner, with Flatline and Mummy on the Orient Express taking silver and bronze. The series finale, when ranked together, averaged 4.19/5. 

*The score is different to what was previously reported, as Time Heist and Death in Heaven came down to a difference of just 0.0001.
Death in Heaven‘s Question of the Week asked: ‘Whose situation is worse?’ – the Doctor’s or Clara’s, as the series ended? Was the failure to find Gallifrey worse, or was it Clara’s loss of Danny forever? It was Clara who came out with the majority in the end:
  • The Doctor – 38.46%
  • Clara – 61.54%
That’s it for Series 8, but we’ll have a special Christmas mini-tournament starting next week, voting for your favourite Christmas Special.
