Doctor Who

Season 17 generally

Trivia: Season 17 had the highest audience viewing figures of any season of Doctor Who. The average audience for Season 17 was 11.2 million viewers. The highest audience viewing figure ever for any individual Doctor Who episode was part 4 of "City of Death" (first broadcast 20 October 1979) with 16.1 million viewers. However, these figures were artificially boosted by the fact that, at the time, ITV was off the air due to a strike, leaving just the two BBC Channels broadcasting.
