Your Series 5 Ratings

It's been two months since the end of Series 5. Its gone so fast. But after all that time for viewing after viewing after viewing, in the latest poll we wanted to know how the series was holding up and how you rate it, so here are the results.

1/5 Such a massive dissapointment - 2% of the people who voted went with this option and feel that series 5 didnt live up to the hype surrounding it.

2/5 A few good bits, but mainly dissapointing - 11% of the people who voted went for this option. Main highlights from some tweeters included Vincent and the Doctor

3/5 Not bad, not great - 9% of the voters chose this option, feeling that there was little consistency within the series.

4/5 Very near to perfection - 50% of all voters felt that this series was very near perfection. The Daleks and River Song seemed to be the downpoints for many viewers.

5/5 Best new series so far - 28% of voters gave series five full marks and said that it was the best series since the show was revived in 2005/

So it seems that the majority of people were really happy with series 5, despite press reports which would have you believe that the fans hated it and were switching off in their millions. Thank goodness we held this poll to put things straight.

Do you agree with the results? Let us know


  1. Great result, I for one don't really understand why the press give it such a hard time :(

  2. River Song and Daleks downpoints. Who the hell thought that?!

  3. Is it really surprising that a site dedicated to Doctor Who fans would generally have people who liked the most recent season of Doctor Who?

    People who are disgusted with the show generally stop reading sites dedicated to it an thus wouldn't be replying to this poll.

    *was one of the people who gave it a 1/5*

  4. Meh. I gave it a 3/5...but I also don't think River Song is a downpoint. I think she's a strongpoint on the show.

  5. 5/5 from me. Best season ever. I love River; I hope to see a lot more of her in the coming seasons.

  6. This series to me was a total disappointment, best bit about it? Probably Rory and other bits and pieces here and there...
    I don't think Moffat has the talent RTD has... he rehashed a lot of already used stories..
    Downpoints? River Song... ugh! Pastel coloured Daleks, annoying Amy and Matt Smith also leaves me cold...

  7. 4/5 I really like this season and River Song.

  8. 2/5. Vincent and the Doctor, as well as the Finale, where very well-done episodes, but they were the only decent ones. The quality of the writing has really gone downhill since Davies left, and the show as essentially run out of new plot ideas.

    Matt Smith's character is nice and funny enough, but he, unlike David Tennant, just doesn't have the acting ability to back any of it up. Smith has the potential to be better, but not to be brilliant. Look back at Tennant's acting in "Human Nature" and "The Family of Blood." It blew me away - just fantastic. So well executed, so varied. But based on this season, I don't think Matt's up to it.

    Still, I'll keep watching. Gotta stay hopeful... right?
