The overnight UK viewing figures for last night’s episode, Under the Lake, have been released.
The episode had 3.74 million viewers on average, completely even with last week’s episode. Once again, the rating was hit by a major Rugby World Cup match between England and Australia, in which England’s fate in the competition was decided, but represents a solid hold from last week’s rating.
Notably, England’s exit from the World Cup last night means that Doctor Who will face significantly weaker opposition next week.
The consolidated viewing figures will be released next week, where Doctor Who will likely rise notably in the ratings.
