Ratings Records for BBC America With Doctor Who Tennant Finale
Saturday night the initial telecast of Doctor Who’s “End of Time, Pt 2”, David Tennant’s finale as the doctor, averaged over a million viewers for BBC America (1.015 million) from 8:30p-10pm. That’s better than the 671,000 for the first airing of Pt. 1 on BBCA, and even better than December’s “Waters of Mars” episode which averaged 803,000 in its first telecast.
An additional broadcast from 11:30p-1a averaged 224,000 and the 2:30am-4am telecast added in another 96,000 for a total of 1.47 million between the three airings surpassing the 1.1 million for the three airings of “Waters of Mars.”
