The penultimate episode of the series, Dark Water, had an AI (or Audience Appreciation Index) score of 85.
The Appreciation Index or AI is a measure of how much the audience enjoyed the programme. The score, out of a hundred, is compiled by a specially selected panel of around 5,000 people who go online and rate and comment on programmes.
The episode was clearly a hit, with the same score as Mummy on the Orient Express and Flatline. Six programmes scored higher on Sunday, so Doctor Who ended up in 29th place for the week. The final figures will be released next week
- Mummy on the Orient Express, Flatline & Dark Water – 85
- Into The Dalek & Time Heist – 84
- The Caretaker and In The Forest Of The Night – 83
- Deep Breath, Robots of Sherwood, Listen & Kill the Moon – 82
The Sunday repeat of In The Forest Of The Night on BBC Three had an overnight estimate of 0.26 million viewers, a 1.0% share of the audience.
