Parting of the Ways Reaction

As reported on the BBC website, the glorious British weather affected overnight ratings of Parting of the Ways, although it still managed 6.2 million according to overnight figures (subject to revision) which is 41.8% of the available viewers for that timeslot.

The BBC also report that 3m viewers tuned in to watch Doctor Who:The Ultimate Guide (a compilation of various editions of Doctor Who Confidential) at 6.15pm (this information can also be found at Digital Spy)

On Sunday, following broadcast, the Newsround pages of the BBC website revealed an interview with Russell T Davies, in which he reveals (nameless) returning characters in season 2, as well as the fact that there is another running theme/meme:

“…that word has already been heard on screen. And that’s all I’m saying. You’ll have to go back and trawl through 13 episodes to realise what I’m on about.

“You’ll hear the word in the Christmas special though”

Meanwhile, BBC photos of the great adventure that we’ve all jus had are available at

Finally, the Official Doctor Who website has updated it’s splash page with the final episode’s most poignant moment…
