The Witch's Familiar - final viewing figures

The second episode of the 2015 series, The Witch's Familiar by Steven Moffat, achieved an official consolidated viewing figure of 5.71 million viewers in statistics released by BARB (the Broadcasters' Audience Research Board). This figure includes viewers who timeshifted the programme in the week following transmission.

Doctor Who was the 8th most-watched programme of the week on the BBC, and the 24th most-watched across the whole of UK television.

This episode's scheduling proved particularly controversial, with the BBC placing Doctor Who opposite the live England v Wales Rugby World Cup match on ITV, causing a significant dent in the former's viewing figures.
