Is anyone surpised? The modern DW still has its moments but is past its prime which I would argue was from 2006 David Tennant til the 50th anniversary. An actress playing the role was a nice change with Jodie Whittaker, but the quality didn't improve. I'll still watch it because IMO it's still a decent show but it's far from unmissable.4.6 million viewers in the UK yesterday according to unofficial overnight figures.
The rating, representing 22.6% of the total viewing audience, was disappointing for the series making Doctor Who the fifth most popular show on British Television yesterday. Doctor Who was beaten by its ITV opposition, Dancing on Ice: The Launch, which had 5.14 million viewers.
Top for the day was the return of Call the Midwife, with 6.97 million viewers. Countryfile, the lead into Doctor Who, had 5.04 million. Football also did well with Match of the Day seen by 5.14 million during the afternoon.
