1/02/2012 08:53:00 pm - Reported by Marcus

Doctor Who, The Doctor, The Witch and The Wardrobe had a final official rating of 10.77 million viewers.

The official rating takes into account those who record the programme and watch it within 7 days. It is much more accurate than the initial overnight figure. It does not include those watching on iPlayer, where over 700,000 accessed the episode within five days of transmission.

The final ratings saw ITV1's Downton Abbey leap to the top of the list to claim the prize as the most watched programme of Christmas Day with 11.60 million watching. EastEnders was second with 11.33 million and Doctor Who came in third. It overtook ITV1's Coronation Street which was the 4th most watched programme of the day.

Christmas Day dominated the ratings for the week, making Doctor Who the 3rd most watched programme for the week. In the history of the programme only eight episodes of Doctor Who have made the top Three for the week.
Congratulations to Daniel Elkington of Brunswick, Victoria, Australia who guessed 10.79 million in our Christmas Competition.
Other winners are Bridget Walker of Rockhamption, Queensland, Australia (10.71), Matthew Boorman of Warwick (10.82), Morag Bennett of Telford (11.11) and Lee Higgins, Shrewsbury (11.3)
