YAS!!! Jodie Whittaker's first episode of 'Doctor Who' draws biggest ratings in 10 years.



- The season premiere of 'Doctor Who' draws huge ratings for BBC.
- Jodie Whittaker's first episode draw 8.2 million viewers in the UK and a 40.2% share.
- Last season premiere only made 4.6 millons.
- Her entrance was also bigger than debuts by previous doctors David Tennant, Matt Smith and Capaldi.
- To put this in context. UK is also experiencing declining ratings through every network, same as american TV, since people are moving to streaming TV. BBC1's terror thriller 'Bodyguard' opened with 6.7M viewers and a 35% share to become the biggest new drama launch of the year, with DW surpassing it.
