Doctor Who iPlayer Record

Doctor Who’s success has seen the first episode of the current run become the most requested programme to date on BBC iPlayer, the broadcaster’s revolutionary online catchup TV service

Doctor Who - The Eleventh HourThe Eleventh Hour has been requested over 1.78 million times to date, making it the most requested broadcast, beating the previous record which was held by the first edition of Top Gear’s most recent series last summer.

Furthermore, the first four episodes of the current series of Doctor Who received 5.2 million views between them, making them the four most requested programmes in April.

This is of course great news both for Doctor Who and the BBC’s popular online viewing service, which allows both TV and radio to be enjoyed after the initial broadcast.

The Eleventh Hour is available on iPlayer until 6:24pm Saturday 3rd July 2010.
