    I’ve seen all the adverts you talking about on YouTube.

    You win, Tim M. It got 3.01 million overnight, which I do believe is the lowest since the revival.

    Yes, hopefully.
    My guess is a slightly more optimistic 3.5 million overnight, simply because the next time trailer has quite a lot of views on YouTube. Let’s see who turns out to be closest. 🙂

    Hopefully ratings will increase with the relaunch next year.

    Lowest overnight ratings of the series I reckon, maybe even since it’s return in 2005. I’m going for 2.9 million viewers for ‘The Lie of the Land’.

    Is it just me , or has anyone else noticed the lack of advertising to promote series 10 week by week. ? I have seen very little of the teasers in between the normal programs on the BBC channels.

    It would be awesome if that’s true and is mentioned in the episode, even more so if it shows us the monks facing off the daleks etc. 🙂

    I think we should expect low viewing figures for this one. It’s on at the same time as the final for Britain’s Got Talent. :/
