Doctor Who: The Big Bang - Overnight Ratings

Unofficial overnight viewing figures indicate that Doctor Who: The Big Bang was watched by 4.6 million viewers on BBC One, with an additional 0.5 million on the BBC HD channel, giving the episode a total rating of 5.1 million viewers with a share of 31%.

Doctor Who was the second most-watched programme of the day on British TV, and the most-watched programme on BBC One of the day.

For the very cynical ones amongst you, remember that the episode was transmitted in one of the earliest time slots since 2005, and the baking hot weather (a very sharp contrast to when 'Journey's End' was transmitted!) will have forced many people to record the episode and watch it later (as we have seen throughout this series!), or catch up on the BBC iPlayer. In this interview with his son, Steven Moffat talks about how the 'timeshift' of viewing has become more important.

Final figures - which are usually much higher - will be published next week.
