Torchwood "To The Last Man" Overnight Ratings

Overnight ratings for the third episode of Torchwood’s second season came in at 3.2 million, slightly down on last week, and once again fourth in its slot. This week the powerhouse that is Grand Designs on Channel 4 was the winner with a hefty 4.7 million, but Torchwood wasn't too far behind ITV1 (Honest, 3.9 million) and BBC1 (What Women want, 3.7 million).

Meanwhile, final figures are in for the season’s first episode, "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang" (which include the number of people of recorded it to watch it later) and show a very healthy increase to 4.22 million (up from 3.7 overnight). That makes it BBC2's most watched show that week (a million ahead of the channel's number two show, a documentary on Norman Wisdom) and the BBC's second most watched show so far this year after Louis Theroux Behind Bars (which was great, so we can’t grumble).
