"Into the Dalek" - Overnight Ratings
"Into the Dalek" achieved overnight figures of 5.2million - a 24.7% share of the audience. The highest rated show of the night was, of course, "The X Factor" which managed 9.3million.
With "The X Factor" starting 30 minutes after "Doctor Who" it was good to see that the ratings for "Doctor Who" held firm and suffered no drop once "The X Factor" started. However, approximately 2 million viewers turned over to ITV once "Doctor Who" finished.
Final figures will be released next week and should show a large increase in "Doctor Who" ratings.
