"Robot of Sherwood" - Consolidated Viewing Figures


The consolidated viewing figures for "Robot of Sherwood" give the episode a final rating of 7.28million - which is an increase of 2.06million from the overnight figure of 5.22million.

With the first three episodes of Series 8 showing a huge timeshift, it makes the overnight ratings practically meaningless.

Please note that this figure includes UK viewers who watched the episode in the first 7 days after transmission - it does not include those who watched it on iplayer via computers or tablets (although apparently BARB are working on it).





"Listen" - Overnight Ratings


"Listen" achieved an overnight figure of 4.8million - slightly lower than "Into the Dalek" and "Robot of Sherwood" - with a 23.5% share of the total audience.

"Listen" was the highest rated BBC programme and second overall behind "The X Factor".

For some reason, overnight figures for all programmes were down but I expect the  Consolidated figures which should be available next week will more than make up for this.

"The Caretaker" - Official Synopsis


The BBC have released the official synopsis for episode 6, "The Caretaker", which will air on BBC 1 on Saturday 27 September 2014:
The terrifying Skovox Blitzer is ready to destroy all humanity - but worse, and any second now, Danny Pink and the Doctor are going to meet. 
When terrifying events threaten Coal Hill school, the Doctor decides to go undercover.
Steven Moffat wrote briefly about "The Caretaker" in his Radio Times episode guide:
"Clara has it all under control: her life at school, her life in space; her new boyfriend and her mad old Time Lord. Everything is humming along just fine, so long as everybody never actually meets. And then, one morning, just before assembly, Coal Hill welcomes a new relief caretaker with a Scottish accent."

"Into the Dalek" - Consolidated Viewing Figures


The consolidated viewing figures for "Into the Dalek" give the episode a final rating of 7.29million - which is an increase of 2.09million from the overnight figure of 5.2million.  Proof, I think, should any be needed, that timeshifting is now a huge part of "Doctor Who" ratings.

Please note that this figure includes UK viewers who watched the episode in the first 7 days after transmission - it does not include those who watched it on iplayer via computers or tablets.
