BBC America breaks ratings records again with Doctor Who
David Tennant’s final bow as the Doctor in “Doctor Who” brought ratings records to BBC America.
The U.S. Premiere of “Doctor Who: The End of Time, Part Two,” followed by the premiere of the series “Demons,” brought the highest-ever primetime rating and delivery in total viewers to BBC America. The shows aired Saturday, Jan. 2.
A “Doctor Who” marathon throughout the day of Jan. 2 brought BBC America its best total day delivery ever in A25-54 in Live and Live + Same Day DVR. BBC AMERICA’s previous highest ever primetime rating was delivered by the first special, “Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars,” which aired two weeks earlier.
The final special starring David Tennant as the tenth Doctor ended with the Doctor regenerating into the eleventh Doctor, to be played by Matt Smith.
“Demons,” which followed “The End of Time, Part Two” stars Philip Glenister (“Life on Mars,” “Ashes to Ashes”) and puts a contemporary spin on Bram Stoker’s “Dracula.” A teaser for Doctor Who season five was shown during “Demons.” That teaser is now online here.
