And well deserved, too! The Moff was right: Gaiman is definately a fan of Who, one that should be asked back to write another story.

I think we may be about to see the biggest swing in the history of ranking-things-out-of-five...

You may well be right young man. Perhaps even more so with "The Almost People".

The Doctor's Wife 97

Series 6 dips to a new low with The Almost People. The Wrinkly Index for the combined story is 67, a couple of points above the average of the 2 parts.

If you extrapolate those figures so the average reflects the same 1 to 5 scale that we voted on originally you get:

The Doctor's Wife 5
Day of the Moon 4
The Impossible Astronaut 4
The Rebel Flesh 3
The Curse of the Black Spot 3
The Almost People 3

A mainly average series!

Only if your cup is half-empty, I'd say a series where all the stories get rated as either rated as average or above is an above-average series.

It's median average and it's modal average is 3, which is average.

50% of it above average though. It'll be interesting to see what we get for AGMGTW.

Surely, even using your figures its median is 3.5 which is above average.

Anyway, a fairer* way of averaging back to a 1-5 score is to add up all the average scores, divide by six to get a series average so far and then divide by 20 to get back to an 'out of 5' score. This gives us a wrinkly average for the first six episodes of 3.74. Which is above average.**


* OK, a different way...

** Hang on, I'm not entirely happy with recent Doctor Who.
Why am I attempting to up the average score???

Would it be worth our while running polls on Series 1 - 4 over the next couple of months?

I think we would need to keep to the existing format Rich.

But it's not a very effective - generally people will rate something with a 3, a 4 or a 5. I've got all 3s for this year (except for one 5) and yet I like some of those 3s much more than the others. On a 10 point scale I could throw out a 5, a 6 or a 7.

I'll be guided by the consensus then. Any other thoughts folks?

Keep it as it is. In my head a mark out of five means something (Respectively: great, good, average, poor, Timelash).

I agree with Stanmore. And this includes the Timelash rating.

So with the four votes in so far, we should be marking the stories out of 30 (mean average) or 5 (mode average) or 7.5 (median average) or 5 again (Rich's interpretation of median average).
