Doctor Who has set a new record for BBC's iPlayer downloads. The Eleventh Hour has achieved the highest number of requests in a week, with 1.27 million requests to view seven days after it was screened by the BBC. An episode of Top Gear was the most watched programme of 2009 with 1.6 million views, and it is possible The Eleventh Hour could exceed this figure when final figures are calculated.

As reported earlier this week, over 10 million watched the initial broadcast on BBC One and BBC HD.

Meanwhile Matt Smith and Karen Gillan have continued their wooing of the American media with a appearance on Fox News's Strategy Room talking about the series and explaining how the sonic screwdriver works.
