Doctor Who: The Pyramid at the End of the World - Overnight UK Viewing Figures

The overnight UK viewing figures for last night's episode, The Pyramid at the End of the World, have been released.

The episode had 4.01 million viewers on average, a small drop from last week's figure of 4.16 million, but a reasonably robust rating considering the episode was up against Britain's Got Talent on ITV for the majority (it has the latest timeslot this season) and aired on a warm Bank Holiday weekend, which are factors that typically cause low ratings. Here's how it stacks up to the rest of the season so far:
  1. The Pilot - 4.64 million 
  2. Knock Knock - 4.32 million 
  3. Smile - 4.25 million 
  4. Extremis - 4.16 million 
  5. The Pyramid at the End of the World - 4.01 million
  6. Thin Ice 3.76 million 
  7. Oxygen - 3.57 million 
Doctor Who was third for the day, behind Britain's Got Talent and the FA Cup Final, and second on BBC One.

The consolidated viewing figures will be released next week, where Doctor Who will likely rise notably in the ratings.
