Series four ends in the UK as it begins in Australia--to excellent ratings. We would like to emphasize this site is spoiler free.
Overnight figures have Voyage of the Damned getting almost one and a quarter million viewers; final figures will show if this has beaten the 2005 premier to be the highest rating episode of Doctor Who in Australia.
It seems that Doctor Who smashed Big Brother in its time slot
OK, "Partners in Crime" may not exactly be a sci-fi classic, but it had my kids rolling around the floor in hysterics........and as for Donna, DONT BELIEVE THE NEGATIVE RUBBISH....shes turning out to be the best companion by far of new Who.
No, not really. Overnight figures have the News at 1,227,000, followed by Partners in Crime at 1,112,000 and A Noble Return at 921,000. So if Voyage didn't hold the record then Partners would be a contender, and even the ratings for the first Confidential Cut Down would be a respectable figure for a Saturday episode. So far, so good.
