Series 7 premiere breaks records around the world
Last weekend’s debut of Asylum of the Daleks has only gone and broken records around the world!
As the BBC reports the opening episode wasn’t just a huge hit in the UK (where it was seen by an overnight audience of 6.38million), as it’s managed to score an all time high for BBC America. With an audience of 1.55 million, the episode has become the channel’s most watched non-sports telecast ever, the coveted title previously held by last year’s series premiere, The Impossible Astronaut.
Meanwhile the episode delivered a strong 620,000 viewers for SPACE in Canada, where it was that night’s most watched show in its timeslot. Although fans in Australia have to wait until this weekend for the Doctor’s televisual return, the episode was released on iView following its UK transmission, attracting a record-breaking 75,000 overnight views.
Many thanks to Chris!
