Doctor Who "The Name Of The Doctor" Overnight Ratings

Official figures show that 5.46 million people tuned in to see Doctor Who "The Name Of The Doctor” live on transmission on BBC One on Saturday night.

That’s a nice hefty increase over recent weeks, and thankfully so for such a blinding episode. Hurrah for a damned fine finale, and one that must have created one hell of buzz for the 50th anniversary special. We expect this one to do pretty darn well on iPlayer too as more people want to find out what all the fuss was about (it’s at number one at the moment, needless to say).
