The average rating for Peter Capaldi’s last season was 5.8 million viewers. No episode that season rated above 6.68 million - and that rating was for the season premiere. That season featured the only two episodes to rate below 5 million viewers EVER since Doctor Who was revived in 2005.
The season before that the average rating was 6.20 million. That was the first season since 2005 not to have a single episode rate over 7 million viewers. Every season before that had an average rating in the 7 millions, except for season 4 in 2008 which averaged 8.42 million. Incidentally, that was David Tennant’s last full season, and the final full season before the Moffatt years.
Whilst the ratings have only been announced for 4 episodes so far, not a single episode of Jodie Whittaker’s first sesason has fallen below 8 million viewers. The average rating so far has been 9.15 million. Its true that it is unlikely the average will stay that high - ratings have technically been dropping week by week. Exactly as happened every season in the past - it is perfectly normal for ratings to fall towards the middle of a season, and rise again for the finale.
A lot of the media will just do anything to discredit this season because they can’t handle the fact the Doctor is female now.
