The data does not yet include those watching on Android devices.

The report ending 27th September indicates that Doctor Who: The Magician's Apprentice was streamed 373,826 in the eight days following transmission. It currently stands as the 6th most streamed programme in the previous 28 days, behind five episodes of The Great British Bake Off and one episode of Doctor Foster.

The Doctor Who New Series Prologue is currently the 12th most watched streamed programme over the period.

In the two days it was available The Witch's Familiar was streamed 202,949 times.
