The overnight UK viewing figures for last night’s episode, Time Heist, have been released.
The episode had 4.92 million viewers on average and a share of 23.5% of the overall audience – that’s 110k up on Listen. The episode had a stronger lead-in this week, with Pointless Celebrities instead of Tumble leading into the episode.
Doctor Who was once again the second most watched programme of the day, behind The X Factor.
Next week will most likely see a major change for the ratings, as the show moves to a late timeslot of 8.30pm with Strictly Come Dancing as its lead in and a full clash with The X Factor.
The consolidated viewing figures will be released next week, where Doctor Who will rise considerably in the ratings.
