Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor – BBC iPlayer Stats

Doctor Who‘s 50th anniversary The Day of the Doctor is already the biggest drama of 2013 in the UK (and the second biggest programme overall to boot), but it’s also smashing records on BBC iPlayer.

After 24 hours, The Day of the Doctor racked up 1.27 million requests, breaking the record for most views in 24 hours (beating out the London Olympics’ Opening Ceremony), and over the week, it totalled 2.9 million requests.

While that number is partially included in the 12.8 million that watched it on TV (due to people watching iPlayer on the TV), the huge number bumps The Day of the Doctor up to well over 14 million unique viewers in the UK.
