    I would worry about the rating if I was you folks. FA cup or not if the writing and and acting doesn’t improve a show that is a long time favorite will be in serious trouble. The last couple of seasons have been very hit and miss. This season has been all miss as far as my friends and me are concerned. At least this episode the Doctor didn’t need to have the companion save the day. I am getting sick of the Doctor not knowing what to do most of the time and the companions needing to save the day, even if it is by accident. If they reveal the Doctor’s name Mr. Moffat my need a team of bodyguards or to go into hiding.

    Also, for someone who spent 3 hours on the phone and internet trying to book proms tickets (and failing) which completely sold out in 2 hours, i can say for sure the Doctor Who is still very very popular

    Wouldn’t be worried about this one folks, it was up against the FA Cup final after all. Plus, the final viewing figures have still been decent after we thought they would be bad when the overnights were so low and considering the last few episodes haven’t actually been advertised, they’re doing incredibly well.

    many people will watch it on record or i player as viewing habits are that way,not dire figures by the time it all ads up.

    I admit myself, I recorded it. I watched the FA Cup final, have watched it now though 🙂
    I did expect that tbh.

    I am quite dissapointed with these figures but let’s hope next week is better. As long as it did better than last week’s.

    I would imagine a lot of folk would’ve recorded it on sky plus etc to watch later,but honestly those ratings figures are terrible.

    Bad, but better than last week I suppose

    I reckon the viewing figures will go up next week as they’re doing a tv trailer and because it is simply called’The Name of the Doctor’!
