Welcome to the Christmas cup!
Yes, as it is advent now, as well as picture puzzle advent calender, we have this on our site the Christmas cup.
Below you will be able to say which Christmas episodes you love. This will run for the rest of December, as we have a verdict by the end of the month about which Christmas episode you love the most.
Now then, the other day we revealed that you voted that the husbands of River Song, the 2015 Christmas episode of doctor who, was the best Christmas episode so far. Now it's time to take a look at some overall statistics at both this year's results and comparing it to previous year's.
Let's start with the overall charts of this year's results
The husbands of River Song was a first time winner.
Let's take a look at the charts year by year.
2007 was the first year of the Christmas cup where we had only two Christmas episodes. Here are the order:
New means that it is a new special to the chart
2008 saw a non mover for the Christmas invasion at number one as new special, the voyage of the damned, didn't shift the special.
Non means it has not shifted, up means it has gone up and down means it has lowered it's place
2009 saw the third year at the top for the Christmas invasion, which proved to be popular, unlike the most recent Christmas episode, the next doctor.
2010 saw a new top spot for the most recent two part Christmas episode, the end of time, which replaced the Christmas invasion for it's first time win
2011 saw the end of time knocked out of the top and a third new favourite festive episode is A Christmas carol.
Down with a number next to it means it has moved down more than one spot
2012 sees A Christmas carol become a second time winner after the doctor, the widow and the wardrobe is people's new least favourite festive story
2013 saw A Christmas carol win for a third time, the same amount of time that the Christmas invasion was your favourite festive episode for
2014 saw a new favourite with the time of the doctor, the fourth new episode to win the Christmas cup. But it was a one time win. So far anyway.
2015 saw A Christmas carol win the Christmas cup for the fourth time, replacing last year's winner, the time of the doctor.
So then, let's take the winners of each year.
2007-The Christmas invasion
2008-The Christmas invasion
2009-The Christmas invasion
2010-The end of time
2011-A Christmas carol
2012-A Christmas carol
2013-A Christmas carol
2014-The time of the doctor
2015-A Christmas carol
2016-The Husbands of River Song
Here are the five Christmas cup winners, in order of all of their average ratings
Here are the three Christmas cup episodes that didn't do so well
That's it for the Christmas cup in 2016.
We hope you enjoyed voting and enjoyed reading the data analysis, and we will be back next year to find out if this year's special, the return of doctor mysterio, will replace the husbands of River Song, or will another episode, or the winner this year, come to top? Find out next year.
Hope you had a merry Christmas and have a happy new year!
