The Day of the Doctor scored an Appreciation Index figure of 88 for its broadcast on BBC One on Saturday.

The Appreciation Index, or AI, is a measure of how much the audience enjoyed the programme. The score puts the programme firmly in the "excellent" category, and is particularly impressive given the large audience. The score was the joint-highest for Saturday on the five main channels.

Sunday's BBC Three repeat of The Day of the Doctor had an overnight audience of 0.64 million viewers, where the programme won its timeslot. The broadcast peaked at 0.76 million.

The Saturday showing of Doctor Who Live: The Afterparty had an audience of 1.34 million watching, but a rather poor AI of 69. The Sunday repeat had 0.22 million watching.

Sunday saw I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! take top slot in the overnights with 10.6 million watching, pushing Doctor Who into fourth place for the week. Final figures will be released next week, and are likely to see Doctor Who very near the top of the chart for the week.
