'Doctor Who' premiere breaks BBC America ratings record | Inside TV |

Way to go Doctor Who!

The Brit sci-fi series just delivered its most-watched telecast ever on BBC America for its latest season premiere. The Saturday telecast was seen by 1.6 million viewers, which is both a time period high and a series best for the show since it started airing on the network in 2009. Not bad for a program that’s nearly 50 years old (if you count its various incarnations).

Doctor Who, which also recently enjoyed an Entertainment Weekly cover story (not that we’re taking credit or anything), was up 23 percent from its 2011 premiere.
