Doctor Who: Twice Upon a Time - Poll Results & Full Twelfth Doctor Leaderboard

For the past week, you've been voting in our rate the episode poll for Twice Upon a Time. We've now closed the poll and you can view the results below.

Peter Capaldi's final episode as the Doctor proved to be a generally popular one as shown by the mostly positive responses and lack of divisiveness, even if it didn't quite scale the heights of the preceding, fan favourite, finale episodes:
  • Amazing! (5/5) - 41.49%
  • Very good (4/5) - 39.36%
  • OK (3/5) - 11.7%
  • Poor (2/5) - 3.19%
  • Awful (1/5) - 4.26%
The episode had an average score of 4.11/5, a positive result that would put it around the middle of our Series 10 leaderboard. In terms of Peter Capaldi's Christmas Specials, it ranks second behind The Husbands of River Song:
  1. The Husbands of River Song - 4.23
  2. Twice Upon a Time - 4.11
  3. Last Christmas - 4.032
  4. The Return of Doctor Mysterio - 3.61
Notably, it also ranks considerably above Matt Smith's regeneration episode, The Time of the Doctor, which received a mixed response of 3.57/5 back when we polled it in 2013.

The addition of Twice Upon a Time's score completes our Capaldi era leaderboard, all comprised of polls taken immediately following the broadcast of each episode. Twice Upon a Time slots neatly into the midpoint of the leaderboard, between Hell Bent and Before the Flood.
