Doctor Who - Season 12

Average is how I would consider the majority of stories in recent series. This last series has been decent in my opinion (bar Orphan 55), even tonight's episode I guess was alright. Though I think you notice how much the public perception of the programme has changed since Tennant/Early Smith when even here on TV Forum, people aren't discussing each episode as they would have a decade ago.

Doctor Who - Season 12

I think I am enjoying this series more than last series. Though to be fair, the ratings are certainly far from what one might consider to be impressive.

The overnight ratings are not concerning - it is the consolidated ratings after a week which are key. However when we look at shows on Sunday nights across the main channels, their ratings are down too.


Dancing on Ice last week only narrowly beat Doctor Who in the overnights, Dancing on Ice at 4.4 million, Doctor Who 4.2 million - so even ITV's big Sunday night live entertainment show is not doing great in the overnights.

For perspective, the highest rated overnight show last Sunday was Call the Midwife on BBC One with 6.5 million. No show attracted more than this last Sunday.

Definitely agree with you there. Sunday's don't seem to be doing well in the overnights at the moment. When putting Doctor Who's overnights into perspective, they're actually rather decent.

BBC Oneness adds a bit of hot air

When do you reckon we'll see the teaser for the Christmas 2019 promo?

Probably tomorrow or Friday at the earliest. Maybe even later today if we’re really lucky.

So you haven't got a clue then. Laughing
I reckon probably sometime before Christmas at the earliest.

BBC Oneness adds a bit of hot air

It's odd considering that only people who are watching the show would even recognise the fact that it is a 'His Dark Materials' variation; and the fact that they were putting it before already popular shows such as MM's Big Show and Strictly suggests that they were intending to promote it to a larger audience - despite HDM having been going for a couple of weeks already. Also, not even showing it before the programme itself just seems bizarre.

Not really, if the point is to promote it, then there's little point putting it on in front of the actual thing when the audience is there watching it

TV companies don't usually run traditional prkmos before the thing they're promoting
No but you would think they would use it into the programme itself. Take the Doctor Who variations of Capes and Hippos for example. Not only were they used before other programmes surrounding Series 8/9, but they were used into Doctor Who itself also.
