The Score To Beat - Doctor Who Viewing Figures

So how do you think "The End Of Time" will perform in the ratings? Could it be the top-rated New Who episode ever? Could Part Two do even better? Can either of them beat the Kylie factor?

Here's how every episode of New Who has done so far, arranged in order of OVERNIGHT viewing figures. The number in brackets afterwards is the final consolidated rating (in millions), when timeshifted figures are added in. As you can see, last year "The Next Doctor" benefitted from a phenomenal time shift. Perhaps that was because, like this year, it was shown slightly earlier, at 6pm. Could the same thing hapen this year? Or will even more people watch on HD (how many people have treated themselves to a new telly for Christmas?) which could affect the figures (the BBC doesn't officially add in HD figures to the BBC1 figures).

Anyway, enjoy the browse.
