Unofficial figures show that the final episode of Series Four, Journey's End, was watched by 9.4 millionviewers, giving it a 45.9% share of the total television audience.

Not only was the programme the highest rated on Saturday, beating the second placed Casualty by nearly 4 million viewers, it is currently the highest rated programme of the week. If no Sunday programme manages to beat it then this will be the first time in the series' long history that it has ever been the top rated programme of the week.

Fifteen minute breakdowns show that Doctor Who peaked with 9.8 million viewers while the highest rating ITV1 got against the programme was 2.4 million viewers. After it finished BBC1 lost 5 million viewers. ITV1's highest rated programme on Saturday was New You've Been Framed! with 4.2 million.

Final figures will be released by BARB in ten days time.
