Doctor Who: Deep Breath Makes UK Box Office Top 10

The UK cinema box office figures for last weekend have been released, and Doctor Who has once again made the top ten!

Deep Breath made £552,908 from the cinema screenings on Saturday - that's down on The Day of the Doctor's haul of £1.7 million last November, but it's worth noting that the 50th anniversary special was helped by multiple screenings on the night, as well as several on the Sunday (as opposed to just one screening for Deep Breath in most cinemas for the whole weekend).

The full top ten for the weekend can be seen below, with Deep Breath in the company of several blockbusters:
  1. Lucy (new release) - £3,076,997
  2. The Inbetweeners 2 - £2,366,161
  3. Guardians of the Galaxy - £1,259,998
  4. Into the Storm (new release) - £1,147,657
  5. Deliver Us from Evil (new release) - £629,554
  6. What If (new release) - £592,501
  7. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes - £588,994
  8. Doctor Who 'Deep Breath' - £522,908
  9. Secret Cinema's Back to the Future - £520,187
  10. The Expendables 3 - £511,168
