Hello everyone

Cosmic Masque New Volume

Cosmic Masque - CM II

CT 451/2

We are aware that CT issue 451/2 has yet to arrive and are investigating the matter. In the meantime there is no need to contact us to advise of non-receipt

***UPDATE***

With no days to spare, issue 451/2 is hitting UK doormats on the last day of 2015. Our apologies for the delay. It was certainly anticipated that the magazine would arrived by Christmas Eve. Unfortunately it missed that slot and the subsequent public holidays held it up until today.

Christmas Special Overnight Ratings

The overnight ratings for Doctor Who in the UK on Christmas Day were 5.8 million, representing 29.4% of the audience. Doctor Who held its own against other shows on TV scoring similar results to 'Call the Midwife', 'Coronation Street' and others. It also beat the Christmas Day edition of 'EastEnders'. Overall Doctor Who was number 7 for the day, although the top ten were all close together.

Diminishing Returns?

The average BARB viewing figures for Series 9 were 6.03 million. This is down a hefty 17% from Series 8 which garnered 7.26 million.

For two performances only - Hector

David Gooderson's play "Hector" is coming to the Ambassadors Theatre in London, on Wednesday 9th December for two performances only at 2.30 and 7.30pm. The play tells the true story of crofter's son Sir Hector MacDonald, a Scottish legend and fallen hero.

David is, of course, best known to Who fans as Davros from the 1979 Tom Baker story "Destiny of the Daleks".

'Face the Raven' BBC1 Overnight Figures

'Face the Raven' achieved overnight ratings of 4.42 million viewers, which was just under 20% of the audience. Doctor Who was number 5 on TV for the day.

Overnight Ratings

The BBC1 overnight ratings for 'Sleep No More' were similar to last week - 4 million, which was 18.6% of the audience. The episode itself seems to be polarising opinion - with people either loving it or hating it. Let su know your view in our poll.
