New UK Exclusive 5.5 inch Doctor Who Collectors Series Action Figures


Toys “R” Us has linked up with Character Options to bring to Doctor Who fans young and old a very special collector's series of figures that will be available only in Toys “R” Us Stores in the UK . The new collection of 11 Figures has launched and will be displayed in brand new resealable packaging that allows the figures to be enjoyed out of pack while also storable in pristine condition.

The new 5.5 inch figure series has been created in response to the great demand from Doctor Who fans who are eager to see the return of the highly detailed larger format. It will include:
·        Clara Oswald (played by Jenna Coleman) – the most recent time travelling companion of The Doctor
·        Rose Tyler (played by Billie Piper) with K9
·        Amy Pond (played by Karen Gillan)  in her famed police outfit
·        Three separate Eleventh Doctor figures (played by Matt Smith): One in purple Jacket, another donning a cowboy hat and finally a classically posed Eleventh Doctor with his ubiquitous Sonic device
·        Four versions of the Twelfth Doctor (played by Peter Capaldi) are also part of the line-up. Known for being a rather dapper Time Lord, there is a choice of figure in White, Black, Purple or Polka Dot shirt.
·        And last but definitely not least a brand new Eighth Doctor figure (played by Paul McGann) and as seen in the episode Night of The Doctor. The Eighth Doctor has never before been seen in the 5.5 inch figure format and so this piece is bound to whip up a storm with fans. 
What’s more, to add variety to this stunning Collector's series, four 3.75 inch Wave 4 figures will also be available.

"The Girl Who Died" - Consolidated Ratings


"The Girl Who Died" has a consolidated 7 day rating of 6.56 million (not including repeats) - an increase of just over 1.7 million from the initial overnight figure of 4.85 million.

This puts the episode eleventh for the week on BBC1.  The consolidated ratings so far this series are:

"The Magician's Apprentice" - 6.54 million
"The Witch's Familiar" - 5.71 million
"Under the Lake" - 5.63 million
"Before the Flood" - 6.05 million
"The Girl Who Died" - 6.56 million

This figure includes those who recorded and watched the show within one week of transmission - plus iplayer views through televisions.  It does not include pc/laptop, tablets or smartphones - initial figures for which will be released by BARB in their Online TV Player Report on Wednesday.



"The Woman Who Lived" - AI Score


"The Woman Who Lived" had an Audience Appreciation Index (AI) score of 81.  The AI scores so far this series are:

"The Magician's Apprentice" - 84
"The Witch's Familiar" - 83
"Under the Lake" - 84
"Before the Flood" - 83
"The Girl Who Died" - 82
"The Woman Who Lived" - 81

The Audience Appreciation Index (AI) is a score out of 100 which is used as an indicator of the public’s appreciation for a show. Over 90 is considered exceptional, 85 or over is excellent, 60 or less is poor, and less than 55 is very poor.

The strange little trend whereby part one of a story scores 1 point higher than part two is continuing...
