5.2 million viewers watched Doctor Who: Robot of Sherwood, a share of 25.4% of the total TV audience, according to unofficial overnight figures.
The rating, the same overnight figure as last week, once more puts Doctor Who as the second rated programme of the day. ITV was top with The X Factor, which had 8.7 million watching, a drop of half a million from the previous week. The Chase: Celebrity Special was third with 4.4 million viewers. Casualty was the second highest programme on BBC One with 3.9 million watching.
With one day to go Doctor Who is the 17th highest programme for the week.
Final figures will be available next Sunday, which could see a top ten final place.
