Last week's Doctor Who story, The Girl Who Waited, had a final consolidated rating of 7.60 million viewers with a share of 30.8% of the audience.
Consolidated figures include those who record and watch the programme within seven days. The final rating is much more accurate than the initial overnight figure and is based on the actual broadcast time of the programme, rather than its scheduled time.
BBC One's highest performing programme of the night was the launch of Strictly Come Dancing, with 8.31 million viewers
A chart position will be released later this week when final figures from the whole week are available.
