So, two episodes in and we’ve got a ratings panic over the ‘collapse’ in viewing figures for Into the Dalek, a superb story. It falls to Doctor Who TV to report: Into the Dalek UK Ratings and avoid the analysis about how the show lost over 2 million viewers thanks to the X-factor.
The same fans / commentators who raved about the exceptional ratings for Deep Breath seem to have forgotten that the week before was exceptional. Yes, X-factor may swing some households, so might it being the last weekend of the UK school holidays! I can’t help but remember last years ratings nonsense: Doctor Who not Cancelled?!
Please let this reactionary nonsense go away; there really is a downside to the everything now or it doesn’t count mentality that social media seems to apply to everything!
