Overnights for top 3 shows of Xmas day were:
Eastenders: 10.9 (million)
The Royle Family: 10.2
Doctor Who: 10
Seems there was a drop in the overall numbers given Doctor got 13 million last year, but no show rated as highly this year. Still, third ranking with less than a million between it and the country's most popular soap isn't too bad at all!
These figures are only overnight ratings. Expect rating updates in a few days - and the all important appreciation figures!
