Doctor Who WIns Christmas Twitter Battle Plus Deleted Scene Video – as a new deleted scene from the show is released online it’s revealed that the special edition of Doctor Who was the most talked about UK tv show on Twitter this Christmas Day.

Just during the time of the show being on air there were over 183k tweets sent with the hashtag #GoodbyeMattSmith being used almost 8k times.
