The overnight UK viewing figures for last night’s episode, Dark Water, have been released.
The episode had 5.27 million viewers on average and a share of 22.6% of the overall TV audience. That’s a rise of 240k on last week, and the best overnight rating since Deep Breath.
Doctor Who was the fourth most watched programme of the day, before Strictly Come Dancing, The X Factor and Pointless Celebrities.
The consolidated viewing figures will be released next week, where Doctor Who will rise considerably in its ratings.
