Benjamin Francis Elliott: BBC America aired the full episode, albeit with oddly placed ad breaks. An ad break DURING a regeneration - not cool. I'm surprised they never just run a set of commercials in the natural pause at the end of the opening credits, reducing the number of intrusive breaks required.
Final figures: 2.47m viewers (19th place)
The episode achieved a 2.472m Live+SD rating for the evening on cable, with a 1.0 Adult 18-49 Rating. [source: TV By The Numbers]
