Doctor Who's series finale, The Wedding of River Song, received a final audience figure of 7.67 million viewers, according to official statistics released by BARB this week; with 6.1 million reported for the initial broadcast, the episode's audience increased by an additional 26% over the course of the week.

The BARB ratings cover the period 26th September to 2nd October, during which Doctor Who was the seventh highest rated individual programme on BBC One and the third as a distinct series, with only episodes of Eastenders and Strictly Come Dancing achieving a higher figure.

Figures do no include those who watched the programme via the BBC iPlayer.

ITV1 programme details for this period have yet to be released; however if viewing patterns have remained consistent with previous weeks, The Wedding of River Song should fall within the Top 20 programmes of the week, and be the eighth most popular distinct series on television - Coronation Street, Emmerdale, The X Factor, Downton Abbey and Doc Martin normally claim higher figures for the commercial channel.

The consolidated chart position should be available later in the week.
