    Who cares about that ? The Doctor had a motorcycle that could fly !

    I imagine he was in his 1st incarnation when he came last at the space olympics, or whatever. It was not until his 3rd incarnation that he mastered the motorocycle. Right ? ❓

    What you are forgetting is that more people use iplayer than before, and then you have the fact that VASTLY more people record the show or watch it on the other channels.etc

    Look at me, I watch it on BBC HD every episode, does that go towards the figure ? No.

    Is it ? I didn’t notice because that was only my 2nd time hearing/seeing them.

    (After watching the christmas special I promised myself not to listen to the music until the next episode)

    I remember when Unicorn and the Wasp pulled in 8 million, that will never happen for a mid-series ep again!

    The book was written by amelia williams and clara said chapter 11 was the best refering to the eleventh doctor. 🙂

    The episode was good, how they both related to the other episodes in the past and adding a twist and all, focusing on clara and the doctor who. But there was no effort in ‘saving the world’ it took the doctor a finger slide to change a guys mind and then a couple of buttons from a man who worked there to set them all free. In my opinion it was way to easy and honestly disppointed me.

    No this isn’t low for an overnight now, people choose to watch in different ways, final figure will be about 8m i would think

    I’m not trying to stir trouble or nothing, but haven’t these over nights been a bit low? I know loads of people watch on iPlayer and stuff, but iPlayer did exist back when DW would pull in 8 million+ overnight.
