Doctor Who 2014 World Cup: Qualifying Rounds - Series 5 (2010)


Welcome back to the Doctor Who 2014 World Cup! Last week's poll saw Steven Moffat claim his fourth win running in the Series 4 qualifying round - and you can check the latest four stories to qualify (we're now up to halfway, with sixteen stories currently qualified) for the group stages on our World Cup page.

If you're new to the World Cup, here's a quick explanation. There are eight qualifying rounds - one for each series plus the Specials, from which 32 stories progress (the top four from each qualifier). The group stages follow, from which the top two from each group of four stories progress into the classic tournament-style knockout rounds. Eventually, two stories will reach the final, with the winner being crowned World Cup champion!

We're continuing the qualifying rounds today with Series 5, Matt Smith's very first series as the Eleventh Doctor. Series 5 saw Amy Pond meeting her Raggedy Doctor, the return of the Weeping Angels and the second Big Bang - but which story is your favourite? You can vote below for your favourite two stories of Series 5!



The poll will be open until Friday 7th March - so please get your votes in before then! We'll have the results as soon as the poll closes on our World Cup page - and come back next Saturday for the Series 6 qualifying round, where Matt Smith's second series as the Eleventh Doctor will be voted for.
