Strange Transmissions

Over the OG central for the latest ratings:

Time ...... BBC1 ............... ITV ............ BBC2 ........... CH4 ..........CH5
18:30 .. 5.1 (31.6%) .. 3.4 (21.1%) .. 0.6 (3.8%) .. 1.1 (6.6%) .. 0.5 (3.4%)
18:45 .. 6.1 (34.5%) .. 3.9 (22.0%) .. 0.7 (3.9%) .. 1.2 (6.8%) .. 0.6 (3.2%)
19:00 .. 6.7 (36.5%) .. 4.1 (22.3%) .. 0.9 (4.7%) .. 1.0 (5.7%) .. 0.6 (3.4%)
19:15 .. 6.0 (32.2%) .. 4.0 (21.6%) .. 1.3 (6.8%) .. 1.3 (7.0%) .. 0.7 (3.9%)
19:30 .. 4.8 (25.2%) .. 3.8 (20.2%) .. 1.7 (8.8%) .. 1.7 (8.9%) .. 0.8 (4.3%)

Average: 6.3 (34.9%)

The needlessly early start certainly hurt the numbers although the ratings were down across the night and across the networks and the show still maintained its supremacy as the top show for the even. Just. It's still a bit disappointing considering this is a Dalek story with all the prepublicity that entails. Perhaps the Radio Times cover put people off.

Anyway, the interesting thing to note is that BBC One gained a million viewers as the show began then lost them again directly afterwards, BUT they didn't go to the other side. I wonder if next week will follow the general pattern of these things and we'll actually gain viewers for the second part.
