Final Viewing Figures for the Big Bang

So after what seems like an eternity and for some peculiar reason as to why the figures could not be released( The Official Viewing FIgures were with held by BARB on the BBC's request.) the final viewing figures for the "Big Bang" are available. 

6.12 Million People Watched the Big Bang officially on BBC 1. with 0.72 Million watching the Repeat on BBC 3. as of yet I am unable to find the BBC HD numbers.

My Fingers in Custard

5b5tz4.jpg

I meant to post this a couple weeks ago, but with series 31 wrapping up and with all of our live shows reviewing it all at the time, I never had a chance.

Even in this day of podcasts and other new media, the art of the fanzine is still around. As evidence is the launch of a new one covering Doctor Who, Fish FIngers and Custard.

In the premiere issue, it features a review of The Eleventh Hour, an article about the infamous 'PBS hijacking incident', Invasion Convention review, 'Cracks', an original 11th Doctor story, 'The Doctor in Wonderland', "It Could Have Been a Spin-off", a column by actor Harry Sedgewick, and what else?

Oh yes, an interview with some bloke named, Louis Trapani. There's much more, so check it out.

The BIG BANG overnight... Figures

The Complete overnight Figures for the season closer of doctor who are 5.1 Million.  4.6 Million of those on BBC 1 and 0.5 Million on BBC HD. Doctor Who was the second highest rated show of the night with the football (soccer) world cup match USA against Ghana coming top with 5.7 million.  Doctor Who even beat Wimbledon which was showing on BBC2 at the same time.  Overall Doctor Who did really well all season when the constantly shifting Time-slots are taken into consideration, and hopefully this will prove to the BBC that they handle the show with more respect next year. In comparison to previous seasons of Doctor Who in the same time slot, it faires better than Patrick Troughtons final episode on The Wargames which had a Final figure of 5 Million viewers, at a time in British Television where there were only three channels, and not as it is today.
