Doctor Who: Oxygen - Final UK Viewing Figures

The consolidated viewing figures for the fifth episode of Series 10, Oxygen, have been released.

The episode had 5.27 million viewers after a week of recordings, a rise of 1.7 million on the overnight rating of 3.57 million. A slightly low timeshift coming from a very low overnight makes this the lowest rating of the season so far and since 2005.

Doctor Who was 11th for the week on BBC One behind four episodes of EastEnders, the Eurovision Song Contest, three episodes of Masterchef, Countryfile and Have I Got News For You, and 26th for the week overall.

Doctor Who: Extremis - Appreciation Index Score

Saturday's episode, Extremis, had an Audience Appreciation (AI) figure of 82.

The Appreciation Index in an indication of how much viewers enjoyed the episode, based on the reactions of a selected panel of viewers, who rate the episode shortly after transmission.

The score of 82 is considered to be good, though it is slightly below average for the Capaldi era and is one lower than last week's score of 83. It's in line with such episodes as The Girl Who Died and Listen - it is common for slightly more experimental instalments to get a lower AI.
