The Day of the Doctor made a hugely impressive £1.7 million on Saturday night alone in cinemas ($2.8 million) from around 450 sites around the country. For context, that's close to the recent opening of box office smash Thor: The Dark World, which has now made over $500 million worldwide.
The huge success enabled The Day of the Doctor to come third in the UK weekend box office behind The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Gravity - both of which had far more screenings and counted takings for all three days.
