Series Eight – complete ratings

With the release of the BARB viewing figures for last week’s series finale, the final ratings for the whole of series eight look like this:

 

SERIES EIGHT AVERAGE AUDIENCE = 7.2M

… which is consistent with the averages for each of Capaldi’s three predecessors. So although, by the BARB measure, it looks like the audience for the show is down it isn’t really.

Series Eight Ratings So Far…

With Kill The Moon having a similar overnight figure to The Caretaker [4.2M versus 4.8M] it looks like things are staying pretty stable ratings-wise at around 7 million viewers each week. Halfway through the run, here’s how Series Eight is shaping up so far:

and if you compare Capaldi’s first series to that of each of his predecessors, things look like this:

Three things worth noting before we all start to panic over these consistent, but still relatively low viewing figures:

1]¬†we’ve just come off the back of the Fiftieth, so there may be a bit of Who fatigue among the non-fan audience

2] this is the first season to start transmission in the Autumn, whereas all the others TX`d in the Spring

3] the Average Audience for these first six eps is 7.3M, which is consistent with what every previous series has achieved.

…which at first glance make it look like Matt Smith is nearly as popular as Tom Baker but Smiffy’s ratings get a boost by virtue of being the Doctor at The Fiftieth.
