THE STOLEN EARTH - Ratings


We don't normally do ratings here at BLOGTOR TOWERS but news is slow and this info is rather astounding. The 'final' viewing figures are in from BARB for THE STOLEN EARTH. A healthy 8.87 million tuned in to see it and this places it at No. 2 in the chart for that week. This is only the second time in the show's history that it has scored so high. Not only that, it is the highest placing for a 'normal' episode ever (ie. not a special). So what beat it you ask? The EURO 2008 final but only by 60,000 or so. Fact fans may note that the BBC3 repeat got just over a million and the Saturday's DOCTOR WHO CONFIDENTIAL got 1.27 million - the highest placed 'multi channel' programme for the week. It's worth pointing out that the penultimate SERIES 4 episode scored an APPRECIATION INDEX of 91 - the highest DOCTOR WHO has ever received and well above most other TV shows.
