Doctor Who: The Christmas Cup - The Results

Over the past few weeks you've been voting for your favourite Doctor Who Christmas Special before Last Christmas comes around - and a hard-fought final, the winner has been crowned!

First up, here's the runner-up of the competition:

RUNNER UP - 2013 Christmas Special: THE TIME OF THE DOCTOR


It appeared to be a nailed-on favourite, winning the elimination round easily and cruising towards the final - but in the battle of the Matt Smith/Jenna Coleman Christmas Specials (a strangely specific pair of finalists) in the final, The Time of the Doctor came unstuck. Though it rallied a little in the final few days, it wasn't enough, leaving Matt Smith's final episode as the runner-up with 38.1% of the vote, leaving the winner:

WINNER: 2012 Christmas Special - THE SNOWMEN


A dark horse throughout the competition, The Snowmen got off to a relatively weak start in the first round and almost crashed out against The End of Time in the quarter-finals. However, it picked up in the final rounds where it mattered, and triumphed in the final against The Time of the Doctor with 61.9% of the vote, making the 2012 special the winner of our Christmas Cup! How appropriate Jenna Coleman's first episode winning will be will be revealed on Christmas Day in Last Christmas... Has Clara's first Christmas won just before her last? Five days to go...

Thanks to everyone who voted in this competition!
