The initial ratings for the BBC1 UK broadcast of 'Dark Water' on 1st November 2014 are 5.27 million, representing 22.4% of the audience. By both measures, this is an increase on last week's episode. Consolidated numbers are due next weekend.
The consolidated viewing figures for 'Flatline' on BBC1 Saturday 18th October 2014 were 6.71 million viewers. This once again means that Doctor Who added a significant audience to the initial overnight result - an additional 2.16 million in fact. 'Flatline' remains one of the lower rated stories so far this season but remains part of a good run of programmes ratings-wise.
Last night's episode on BBC1 reversed the drop seen with 'Flatline' - the episode was seen by 5.03 million people on broadcast which was 21.6% of the audience. It was number three for the day behind 'Strictly Come Dancing' on BBC1 and 'The X Factor' on ITV.
The next episode of the current series arrives at 8.20pm tonight on BBC1 in the UK and around the world shortly afterwards. You can watch the latest trailer at the BBC website by clicking here:http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0299rxw
