The Appreciation Index (AI) figure is a measure of how much the audience enjoyed the programme. The score is out of 100 and is compiled by a specially selected panel of around 5,000 people who go online to rate and comment on programmes.
The AI figure of 84 is slightly lower than what Doctor Who usually achieves, but the episode still scored higher than most of Saturday’s programmes. Shows scoring higher included Casualty with 87, Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway with 88 and Dad’s Army with 87.
