Ashes Victory

The episode actually outperformed the season one debut by 100,000 viewers, but last year saw a big drop off of nearly million viewers between episodes one and two, with the series settling at around the six million mark for the rest of its run (which is still a very good figure for a non-soap drama in this day and age). But if the reaction on the internet so far is any indication (the episode is getting a big thumbs up) then hopefully the series will perform even better this time round.
