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.
