BBC Reports

BBC Live+Same Day: 4.94m; Repeat: 0.28m; Time-Shift: 2.07m; iPlayer: 0.66m; Live+7 Total: 7.96m
The Live+7 figure is calculated by the BBC to try to get an accurate estimate of the total unique audience for an episode of a programme. Unlike official BARB figures the Live+7 uses data to include those who watched one of the broadcast repeats of the episode and those who watched the episode on iPlayer all within 7 days of the original transmission.

The BBC's iPlayer performance figures reported that the episode was requested 1.194m times to the end of the month, making it the eighth most requested programme in September (the figure does not include requests via Virgin Media or Sky).

Ms Delphox, as played by Keeley Hawes (Credit: BBC/Adrian Rogers)DRAMA In July, I visited the warehouse of monster-makers Millennium FX (based in the very same road where I grew up in Chesham, Bucks) and spotted in a corner a tangle of latex-rubber limbs and a hideous head with eyes on stalks. Even in a dishevelled heap, this latest addition to the Whoniverse looked pretty impressive. One of the selling points of tonight's episode, the Teller is a creature who can detect guilt, drain your brain of memories and leave you with a concave bonce.

Keeley Hawes is the other main draw, playing Ms Delphox, head of security at the Bank of Karabraxos. She is reunited with her Line of Duty director Douglas Mackinnon but don't expect anything like the same heights of dramatic tension. Time Heist (co-written by Steve Thompson and Steven Moffat) sees the Doctor and Clara forced to raid "the most dangerous bank in the galaxy", but long before they breach the vault it's clear someone's forgotten the combination for what produces solid-gold Doctor Who.
