Telefantasy huge on BBC iPlayer

12 episodes of Ashes to Ashes, Torchwood and Doctor Who in the Top 20

If download figures from the BBC’s new iPlayer service, launched on Christmas Day 2007, are anything to go by, then BBC bigwigs should be happy to commission a third series of Torchwood.

Seven episodes of the show feature in the Top 20 downloads in the three months following iPlayer’s launch, along with four epiodes of Ashes to Ashes and the Doctor Who Christmas Special, “Voyage of the Damned".
