As always we would like your views on the Doctor Who Christmas Special after it screens where you live. This time round we will be drawing all the comments received out of a virtual hat and the winner will receive a copy of the brand new BBC audio book 'Engines of War' (rrp £25).
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.
