Turn Left - Final BARB Rating

The Broadcast Audience Research Board (BARB), the company that compiles television ratings data in the UK, has today published final viewing figures for the week ending Sunday 22nd June. Final figures are more accurate than the initial overnight ratings, and include those who recorded a programme and watched it within the week of transmission.

The figures show that episode eleven of the current series, Turn Left, had a final viewing figure of 8.09 million for its debut showing on Saturday night on BBC One. This is over a million viewers higher than the initial overnight figure, and means the episode finished in 4th place in the most-watched programmes across all channels for the week. This is the highest chart placing ever gained by a regular series episode of Doctor Who, beaten only by the 2nd place finish of last year's Christmas special, Voyage of the Damned.

The BBC Three Sunday night repeat of the episode gained 915,000 viewers, finishing fourth for the week out of all BBC Three programmes.
