Well Gravity couldn’t hold on to the top spot this week as it had huge competition from not only a few new films but also from a couple of special events.

Four new entries in this weeks top 10, two of them films and two of them special events.  Firstly going in at number nine was Andre Rieu: Home for Christmas 2013, this is the first time that Rieu has managed to enter the chart and it’s extra special as it’s rare to see a classical music concert in the top 10.

The first new film to enter this weeks chart went to the Robert De Niro gangster comedy the Family which went in at number eight.  Into the top three and the doctor has made his first ever appearance in the top 10 with his 50th anniversary episode The Day of the Doctor which was shown on 440 screens and nearly made £2 million.
