The Christmas 2007 Doctor Who festive treat that was Voyage of the Damned gave us thrills and spills on Tuesday evening – us and another 13.8 million viewers!
Some might say that being sandwiched between an EastEnders double-header will no doubt have helped the series, but nevertheless it does seem that rather than Doctor Who benefiting from the misery of some cockneys, the second installment of the soap in fact benefited from Doctor Who!
The figures available so far are the overnights, which don’t include recorded broadcasts, so the final figures are likely to be higher, bearing in mind the time of year.
Here’s the full list:
1. EastEnders part two (13.9m)
2. Dr Who (13.8m)
3. EastEnders part one (11.8m)
4= To The Manor Born (10.1m)
