The Time of the Doctor had a final official rating of 11.14 million viewers, according to figures published by the Broadcasters' Audience Research Board.
The consolidated figure includes those who recorded the programme and watched it within seven days, and is a substantial increase on the initial overnight figure. The episode is confirmed as the second-highest rated programme on British television for Christmas Day, and the third-highest rated programme for the whole week. Only three programmes in the week rated more than 10 million.
Top of the list for the week was the revived sitcom Still Open All Hours, which had 12.23 million watching, while Mrs Brown's Boys topped the charts for Christmas Day itself, with 11.52 million viewers. ITV's highest-rated programme was Coronation Street, scheduled directly against Doctor Who, where it had 9.83 million watching.
Doctor Who was accessed on the BBC iPlayer around 1.9 million times in the week after transmission.
