Doctor Who: Empress of Mars - 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.

After a couple of notably polarising episodes, Empress saw a return to positivity as the modal score was full marks once more, with relatively few negative opinions to be found:


  • Excellent (5/5) - 41.51%
  • Very good (4/5) - 37.74%
  • OK (3/5) - 16.98%
  • Poor (2/5) - 3.77%
  • Awful (1/5) - 0%
The episode had an average score of 4.17/5, a significant upswing from The Lie of the Land's season low. It scored the same as Knock Knock to two decimal places, but it drops just behind when a more precise score is used - nonetheless, that's enough to slot it into the top half of the season so far:
  1. Extremis - 4.40
