Doctor Who: Deep Breath – Final UK Viewing Figures

The consolidated viewing figures for the series eight opener, Deep Breath, have been released.

The opener had 9.17 million viewers after a week of recordings – a large increase of 2.38 million from the overnight figure of 6.79 million. The figure is the third highest rating for a series opener (behind Rose and The Eleventh Hour) since 2005, and is the second highest rating of the week behind The Great British Bake-Off.

The figure does not include those watching on iPlayer on computers or tablets, and Doctor Who was number one on iPlayer for three days after transmission.
