2013′s Most-Watched Drama: The Day of the Doctor!
With viewing figures that even Michael Grade would have appreciated, the subsequent iPlayer requests beat last year’s Olympic Opening Ceremony, whilst the Twitterverse looked set to implode whilst the episode was on the air.
BBC Drama Controller Ben Stephenson said:
The Day of the Doctor also went on to secure a Guinness World Record for the largest ever simulcast of a TV drama, (a feat that has been reported ad infinitum in the online press, but it’s so nice to type!) What an accomplishment for a show that grew from humble beginnings in Lime Grove’s Studio D.
And who knows, with the DVD release now upon us, maybe The Day of the Doctor will be the most-watched drama of 2014 as well…
