Doctor Who UK Ratings Update

The consolidated Ratings for the BBC1 broadcast of 'The Pyramid at the End of the World' were 5.79 million, adding nearly 1.8 million viewers, putting Doctor Who as no 3 for the week on BBC1 and 7th across all channels.

Meanwhile the overnight ratings for 'The Lie of the Land' were 3.01 million or 15% of the audience. This figure, whilst very low, probably reflects the decision to move the final of 'Britain's Got Talent' to Saturday evening on ITV to avoid a clash with the Manchester Benefit Concert. Despite this Doctor Who was still the 4th most watched show of the day across all UK channels.
