Doctor Who: The Eaters of Light - Poll Results

For the past week you've been voting in our rate the episode poll for Empress of Mars. We've now closed the poll and you can view the results below.

We received a pretty unusual set of results this week; as opposed to a spread of results of varying popularity, the results clumped in almost equal quantities to 3/5, 4/5 and 5/5 with no outright negativity, perhaps reflecting an episode that didn't wow many, but angered even fewer:
  • Excellent (5/5) - 33.33%
  • Very good (4/5) - 35.9%
  • OK (3/5) - 30.77%
  • Poor (2/5) - 0%
  • Awful (1/5) - 0%
The episode had an average score of 4.03/5, a tick down from Empress of Mars, but a solid result nonetheless. That puts it at a respectable sixth place on our Series 10 leaderboard:
  1. Extremis - 4.40
  2. Oxygen - 4.24
