10.2 Million People Watched the Doctor Who Special in the UK

Really, a lot of Brits tuned in yesterday for the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who. But still not as many as watched something called Strictly Come Dancing, which aired just before it. The 75-minute special shouldn’t feel bad though — especially since it’s unlikely that dancing show also simultaneously aired in a record 94 countries and 1,500 movie theaters. United States and worldwide viewing numbers aren't available yet, but we expect them to be high.
