For the past week you’ve been voting in our two polls for The Magician’s Apprentice – 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. The premiere may have divided fandom, but TGT voters gave Series 9’s opener a resounding thumbs up, with well over half the voters giving the episode full marks:
- Excellent (5/5) – 61.54%
- Very good (4/5) – 27.69%
- OK (3/5) – 6.92%
- Poor (2/5) – 2.31%
- Dreadful (1/5) – 1.54%
The episode had an average score of 4.45/5, which compares favourably to the rest of Series 8, beating all but three episodes from that series’ leaderboard (which you can read here). Our Series 9 leaderboard will start next week, as we see how The Witch’s Familiar compares to the opener.
The Magician’s Apprentice‘s Question of the Week asked: ‘Will the Doctor kill young Davros?’. It certainly looked as if the Doctor has made his mind up, but will he go through with it in tonight’s episode? The consensus from TGT voters was an notable one:
- Yes – 7.33%
- No – 92.67%
We’ll have a rate the episode poll for The Witch’s Familiar for you straight after the episode tonight at 8.35pm – and this week’s Question of the Week will be up tomorrow.
