A Town Called Mercy Final Viewing Figures

A Town Called Mercy Viewing Figures

Final viewing figures show that A Town Called Mercy was watched by a very impressive 8.42 million viewers beaten only strictly come dancing an the BBC that week. This figure includes those who recorded and programme and then watched it within 7 days.

This does not include iplayer.


Overnight viewing figures showed that A Town Called Mercy was watched by 6.6 million viewers.

These overnight figures have become increasingly unreliable as to the true audience with many people choosing to watch the show at a later time.

    YES, the show has come back to it’s highest ratings with these fantastic episodes. Where can I find a complete schedule showing the upcoming episode names and projected release dates in the US? By the way, this is my absolute favorite TV show of all my 54 years.

    Season 7 is a giant improvement over the previous season (sorry). These first 4 episodes remind me of the best episodes written for David Tennant. I love the raw emotion and look into the Doctor’s emotional growth and setbacks as well as the innovative creatures and characters. Can’t wait to see what follows a Town Called Mercy. Big thumbs up!

    The first thing when I saw these figures was “Oh thank GOD!” Obviously the interesting take on a western drama really worked! I’m guessing that as the Weeping Angles are most peoples favorite creatures that The Angles Take Manhattan will have great viewing figures.

    This is great because if the new people liked what they saw maybe they’ll keep watching. I expect Angels take Manhattan to be very High.

    Wow. That’s a million more people than last week! I know that over nights don’t count for much, but it’s still a bit worrying if they keep getting lower and lower.
