Thank you for your comments about 'Deep Breath', last week. Surprisingly there were not that many of them, so it would be great to get more reactions from members and other fans this time round.

I guess we all know that anyway - but on BBC1 in the UK 'Doctor Who' was, in terms of numbers, yesterday's most popular programme, and is currently the most popular programme for the whole week.

The overnight audience was 6.8 million which represents a 32.5% audience share. The next closest programme was Casualty with 4.2 million.
