That’s the only word for it. Wow.
834,000 viewers watched Let’s Kill Hitler last Saturday night. Making Doctor Who the most watched show in SPACE’s almost 15 year history.
At it’s peak 977,000 people were watching.
Doctor Who’s popularity has been on the rise in North America, but this is probably the biggest indicator yet. SPACE is a first-tier cable station. It’s getting numbers that are astonishing for broadcasters like CBC and CTV, never mind them.
It’s getting viewer figures on par with CBC…when they gave Doctor Who heavy on-air promotion and an ad budget and had no hockey. Of course, SPACE gives Doctor Who on-air promotion and it clearly has an ad budget. And there’s no hockey on right now, so perhaps that’s no surprise.
Even so. This is incredible news. Wow.
