Last night’s episode of Doctor Who, The Long Game, scored an impressive 7.51 million viewers and a 38.9% share of the total audience according to overnight figures.
This result makes the episode the 4th best performing in terms of overnight viewers and one of the best perfoming episodes in relation to audience share.
Making the figures all the more impressive is the fact that The Long Game had less onscreen promotion than most episodes this season. This provides further evidence that the series has found a regular and loyal audience.
Meanwhile ITV’s Celebrity Wrestling scored another dismal result with just 2.56 million viewers tuning in.
