Doctor Who continues its excellent ratings in Australia. TV Tonight reports that Flesh and Stone averaged 967,000 viewers in the five major capital cities, again despite stiff competition from the commercial networks. This was 58,000 more viewers than the previous week and the program's best overnight ratings since 1.033 million Australian viewers watched Matt Smith debut in The Eleventh Hour. Yet again it was the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's top-rating program of the day, rating higher than its popular Sunday 7pm news and a new episode of Foyle's War. The corresponding Confidential Cutdown also rated an excellent 629,000 viewers in the five major capitals.
