"A Town Called Mercy" - Overnight Viewing Figures
The overnight viewing figures have been released and "A Town Called Mercy" achieved 6.6million viewers. This was a 29.1% share of the audience. "Asylum of the Daleks" achieved 6.4million overnight and "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship" achieved 5.5million.
I'm sure some of the rise is due to the "Strictly Come Dancing" effect - "Strictly" aired just prior to "Doctor Who" and managed 8million in the overnights. Last year, the third episode in the Autumn run, "The Girl Who Waited" achieved 6million in the overnights.
The consolidated figures for "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship" should be revealed by BARB tomorrow.
