Vampires over night Figures

Unofficial overnight figures for The Vampires of Venice was watched by 6.2 million viewers with a share of 30.6% of the audience.
5.90 million watched on BBC One, where it was again the most watched programme of the evening, with an additional 0.24 million watching on BBC HD.
The rating was down slightly on the previous week, most probably due to the earlier time slot. On ITV1, Funniest Ever You've Been Framed! had 4.4 million watching.

This is now showing a few parallels with Doctor Who of old, that constantly shifting the times of transmission will mean that viewing figures will drop.

Steven Moffat on the Return of the Weeping Angels

Executive Producer and Lead Writer for Doctor Who, Steven Moffat writes in the BBC TV Blog about The Return of the Weeping Angels (The Time of Angels).

Paul Cornell's New Pulse Pilot - An Exciting New Horror Drama

Paul CornellWriter of some of the best Doctor Who stories in recent years and long time friend of Doctor Who: Podshock, Paul Cornell has written a pilot for a possible new series on BBC3, Pulse.

The 60-minute pilot scheduled for this spring on BBC3 is a medical horror drama set in one of the UK's top teaching hospitals, St Timothy's. It is home of the country's most promising trainee doctors, but beneath its veneer of medical normality lies a secret network of dangerous experiments pushing back the boundaries of science with potentially horrifying consequences.

It stars Claire Foy as Hannah Carter whose mother was a consultant at the hospital before she died suddenly a year prior. Taking a year off teetering on the edge with grief, she's back to resume her training. Hannah remains fragile, so when she starts glimpsing strange events in the hospital and unsettling behavior from her ex-boyfriend and star surgeon Nick played by Stephen Campbell Moore, she's unsure what to believe.

Hannah puts her sanity on the line, ignoring the pleas around her to uncover the truth of the hospital.

What a difference BBC America makes!

bbc america ad

Doctor Who is on a billboard, on the sides of buses, and there are screenings in major cities throughout the country, featuring Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, and executive producer Steven Moffat. What country is this? It's got to be the UK, right?

WRONG!!!! It's the United States of America!

So what's changed? When the show was relaunched in 2005, and when David Tennant became the Doctor there was nothing. Well, that was when the show was on Sci-Fi. Now it's on BBC America, the show's natural home, and these people just get it! They know that the show can be a huge success - it's already the #1 show on the channel, and want the show to be even bigger!
