The final UK rating for last year’s Christmas Special, Last Christmas, has been revealed.

The seasonal episode – Peter Capaldi’s first in his role as the Twelfth Doctor – was watched by an official audience of 8.28 million viewers in the UK making it the show’s least watched festive offering to date.

Saying that, it’s a considerable rise from its initial overnight of 6.3 million which shows that many of its viewers opt to record it and watch it within the first 7 days of its broadcast.

    Looking at the ratings of other Christmas specials, it appears that people are not gathering around to watch Christmas TV like they used to. Nothing broke 10 million.
