Doctor Who: iPlayerDoctor Who dominated the listings for the BBC iPlayer for September, with over 8 million accessing the programme at some point during the month.

Top of the list was the series opener, which has been available for almost the entire month, Asylum of the Daleks with over 2.2 million requests. It was by far the most requested programme on the iPlayer for September.

The next three episodes, available for fewer days, took the next three places in the chart, with Dinosaurs on a Spaceship having 1.8 million requests, A Town Called Mercy having 1.4 million requests and The Power Of Three having 1.3 million accessing the episode.

The highest-rated non-Doctor Who programme was Citizen Khan, which had less than half of the requests for Asylum of the Daleks with just over 1.0 million accessing the programme.

The last Doctor Who episode before the mid-series break, The Angels Take Manhattan, was 7th in the list, with 0.92 million requests, despite only being available for the last 28 hours of the month.

Asylum of the Daleks currently stands as the fifth-most-accessed programme of the year. All Doctor Who episodes are available on the BBC iPlayer until later this evening.
