Here is the latest Ratings Graph, this time for Fifth Doctor Peter Davison`s episodes.
One of the good things about showing the ratings like this is that it makes the changes in the viewing figures much clearer than a simple list of figures ever could.
Some interesting things to note here:
The top [average] rated Davison story was BLACK ORCHID!
Only two stories gained viewers with every episode – FOUR TO DOOMSDAY and THE VISITATION
The only Davison story to lose viewers with every episode was WARRIORS OF THE DEEP
From SNAKEDANCE to ENLIGHTENMENT, episodes 2 & 4 did far better than episodes 1 & 3
His first year averaged about 2 million more viewers than his second and third
Average Audience Year 1 = 9.2M
Average Audience Year 2 – 6.9M
Average Audience Year 3 = 7.1M
