US Audience Record

Congratulations to BBC America who have seen their highest ever ratings with the broadcast of the Doctor Who episode The Waters of Mars on Saturday, 19th December.

Over 1.1 million viewers tuned in to see the prepenultimate episode to star David Tennant as the Doctor battled Water Zombies controlled by the bizarre and still mysterious Flood and challenged Time itself – a move that could have had far more devastating consequences than saving a few lives…

“The final specials starring David Tennant have opened the door for new audiences to this iconic series while taking long-time fans on an incredible journey,” said Richard De Croce, senior vice president of BBC America.

“Tennant’s remaining two specials ‘The End of Time Part One’ and ‘Part Two’ are the most-anticipated episodes in the history of the series, which is why we’re airing them just a day after their UK premiere.”

No doubt this new approach to broadcast Doctor Who soon after its UK broadcast will see BBC America’s audiences for The End of Time increase further still…
