Legend of the Sea Devils Ratings Bomb?
2.2 million viewers overnight ratings
It appears that yesterday's Doctor Who Easter Special, Legend of the Sea Devils, was only the 11th highest rated broadcast series on UK TV scoring only 2.2 million viewers in the overnight ratings.
Doctor Who was broadcast against Britain's Got Talent on ITV 1, which won the day with 5.2 million watching and the new ITV drama The Thief, His Wife and the Canoe on ITV had an overnight audience of 4.71m.
Legend of the Sea Devils has now earned the title of the lowest rated episode in the series almost 60 year history. Previously this was held by Battlefield episode 1 with 3.1 million.
