Doctor Who Delivers

Doctor Who Delivers

Cult classic Doctor Who is proving to be a ratings success for Prime Television. In only its fifth week on screen, the programme’s ratings have placed the network in third place amongst the four commercial channels for the 7:30pm time slot.

Last night’s figures reveal that Doctor Who achieved an all time high, boasting a channel share of 15% for AP 18-49. The programme also performed strongly against the network’s core demographic 25-54 achieving a 14% share. Doctor Who is particularly strong with male audiences 18-49, achieving a channel share of 20% last night.

The highly anticipated second series of Doctor Who has commenced filming with David Tennant stepping into the role of the tenth Time Lord. Billie Piper will return as the Doctor’s feisty young companion, Rose Tyler.

Prime Television has scheduled series two of Doctor Who to screen in Winter 2006.
