Doctor Who’s return to BBC America has been met with healthy ratings as The Eleventh Hour topped The End of Time!
The arrival of Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor coupled with the beautiful Karen Gillan as Amy Pond and an alien invasion made The Eleventh Hour BBC America’s most-watched telecast ever, with 1.2 million viewers tuning in.
Interestingly, the previous record of 1.0 million was set in January with the broadcast of the final Tenth Doctor episode, The End of Time. Doctor Who also remains No. 1 TV series in the iTunes store, says BBC America.
We’d like to pass our congratulations to BBC America for a great result which must owe a lot to the superb promotional campaign that has been run over the past few months.
