In this Extra Edition of Doctor Who: Podshock we look back and review the 2010 series as a whole. Ken, James, and Louis give their thoughts about the first series with Matt Smith as the Doctor in this studio recorded episode.
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.
Earth, 2084. Two global superpowers hover on the brink of war. When the TARDIS is forced to make an unplanned visit to Sea Base Four, the Doctor (Peter Davison, The Last Detective), Tegan (Janet Fielding, Minder) and Turlough (Mark Strickson, A Christmas Carol) find themselves accused of being enemy agents.
The First Lot of Doctor Who tour Dates have Been confirmed and are as Follows:
As the final act of the Night at Glastonbury, electronic band Orbital who hadn't played live in 16 years had a very special Introduction For the last song of the Evening. Matt Smith showing no end to his talents, showed that of a showman firing up the Crowd. Orbitals first song of the night... Their version of the Doctor Who Theme Music. Follow the link below to see the 33second clip of Matt's Introduction.
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.
