Re: Doctor Who

Looks like the ratings still held up too. 6.4 million before iPlayer is factored in.

Also the second episode has gone up to 9 million with iPlayer views.

https://tellymix.co.uk/ratings/38114...figures-4.html

Same ratings again. Seems to be coming in solidly at 7 million.

Quote:
An average audience of 6.4 million tuned in for the fourth episode of the new series of Doctor Who yesterday evening, matching last week's numbers exactly. The series average so far based on overnight data is 7 million viewers, well up on the previous season.
So far the show seems to have done what the BBC needed to do. Refreshed itself and stopped the ratings decline, it's getting numbers similar to the David Tennant era. I do think next season needs to see the writing get tighter though.

Parts of the first ep of s3 of line of duty (the shooting in the house bit) were filmed about the same distance away from me- missed the whole thing! LOL

Initial figures are around 6.1 million this week, so far its fallen each week.

I'm starting to find her (and her sonic) quite irritating, and apparently so are many others. There is no substance to her, just a constant (often incomprehensible) babbling and virtually no plot (and lets not forget the constant PC lectures as well). It least the giant spiders were quite realistic and frightening last week, that teddy bear thing this week was a joke, it reminded me of Nibbler from Futurama.

Re: Doctor Who

It’s always been a lefty show but the level of PC-ness so far, and indeed to come (no doubt next week we’ll all be told how evil Britain has been) is seriously starting to put me off. Jodie isn’t so bad as the Dr but the show needs to start being about her and not whichever currently lefty narrative is in vogue.

Re: Doctor Who

I really did enjoy it again. Ok story, great effects and the music was again really good.

I all this talk of PC this and that. Not one thing has annoyed me. I just don't notice it.

The Pting was a bit like nibbler and Stitch melded together.

Well yeah it will fall for each episode, people tune out of shows more than that tune in during a season for the most part. That is standard really.

The one before came in at 8+ million once time-shifted viewing was factored in. So until the this episode the numbers were still quite high, again comparable to Tennent's era. 6.1 is quite a drop unless that catches up with time-shift viewing as well. The season as a whole is currently the most watched:

Quote:
Overall series info:

Final ratings (in millions):
  • The Woman Who Fell To Earth - 10.95
  • The Ghost Monument - 9.00
  • Rosa - 8.41
  • Arachnids in the UK - 8.22
Average for series 11 so far: 9.15 million - This is the highest ratings average of any series of new-Who by this point in the series.

Overnights, i.e. live TV viewership (in millions):
  • The Woman Who Fell To Earth - 8.20
  • The Ghost Monument - 7.11
  • Rosa - 6.39
  • Arachnids in the UK - 6.43
  • The Tsuranga Conundrum - 6.12
It also appears iPlayer/catch-up numbers are higher than ever. It's adding about two million each time.

Whatever else about the season the BBC will be happy with the ratings.

Personally I have not caught up on the last two episodes. I like Jodie as the Doctor but I still find it difficult to get into Doctor Who that much. I'll try and catch up. I might not though, it doesn't draw me in.

Good call!

Next week they have British Imperialism in their sights in 1947 India.

Review of series so far on link above.

Not watched it but snuggled up behind Countryfile that has gone the same way it's a PC fest for the evening.

Lefty ? Tom Baker is a communist for sure and he's played Rasputin..... However Hartnell, Troughton and Pertwee were definite Tory toffs ! The Daleks are a bit right wing too

Re: Doctor Who

Here's one which is bound to provoke some controversy. I am working my way through the last issue of SFX and they have given Dr Who 3.5 stars (out of 5) and season 2 of Iron Fist 4 stars.

Chalk and cheese, wouldn't really classify DW as Sci-fi, it has a much wider appeal than the usual sci fi clique. Its certainly been a needed change which only this programme can do and thrive on.

To be fair ... Iron Fist is for people who wear black tee shirts and hand around in the back of Forbidden Planet. Doctor Who is a teatime fantasy designed for families with pre-teen kids. That Who has garnered a wider audience over the years is a mark of its genius, and in many ways its unsurprising that people instinctively want to compare it to Marvel TV. But it isnít the same.
