End of Time All Time High?
Source: The Doctor Who News Page:
"The End of Time Part One received an AI figure of 87. The Appreciation Index, or AI, figure is a measure of how much the audience liked a programme. A score over 85 is considered excellent. Doctor Who had the highest score of the day on BBC One or BBC Two. The only programme to score higher on the main five channels was the film Gladiator on ITV1, which scored 89 with a much lower audience."
While it seems fan reaction was a little mixed, for those the show was made for, RTD's epic first part finale was a GREAT success!
