The recent Doctor Who Prom was watched by an impressive 1.45 million viewers, it has been confirmed.
Broadcast on the August Bank Holiday (Monday 26th) this was a 15% share of the television audience at the time, with a further 230,000 people tuning into the event on BBC iPlayer. And as if that wasn’t enough, the programme won its time slot and achieved an impressive score of 87 on the Audience Appreciation Index, with 76% of those surveyed saying the show was of high quality. (Simply put: people liked it!)
The Prom, which ran for just over an hour, featured music from the most recent series of Doctor Who, as well as a host of tracks from the ‘classic’ era, including the terrifying Cyberman theme from The Moonbase, and Dudley Simpson’s wonderfully ‘Parisian’ number from City of Death.
Sadly, the only thing missing from the TV transmission was Murray Gold’s new anniversary composition Song for Fifty. Will it make its television debut in the upcoming special The Day of the Doctor? It wouldn’t be a bad idea!
