The overnight UK viewing figures for last night’s episode, Arachnids in the UK, have been released.
The episode had 6.43 million viewers on average, a slight tick up from last week’s figure of 6.39 million, and a clear indication that the season’s ratings have stabilised following the premiere.
As with last week, Doctor Who was second for the day behind Strictly Come Dancing (9.14 million), and comfortably ahead of The Little Drummer Girl (5.19 million) and The X Factor (4.2 million). It’s currently the fourth strongest overnight rating of the week.
The consolidated and four-screen figures will be released next week.
