This figure includes those who recorded the programme and watched it within a week. However, it does not include the 300,000 viewers who watched the BBC repeat, or the 1.7 million who have watched it on iPlayer so far.
The data shows that Doctor Who was the sixth highest rated show on BBC One for that week. The most watched programme was Jonathan Creek, with 8.75 million viewers.
A full ratings chart will be available later in the week.
