Doctor Who series two opener attracts eight million

BBC News is reporting that the series two opener of Doctor Who, New Earth, starring David Tennant as the 10th Doctor, attracted over eight million viewers to BBC ONE in the U.K. on Easter Saturday.

The audience peaked at around 8.3 million viewers, not taking in to account those who had recorded the show to watch it later.

It was up against Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets on ITV1, which netted around five million viewers in all.

9.4 million people tuned in to The Christmas Invasion towards the end of 2005, and 10 million tuned in to watch the opening episode of the season revival last year when Christopher Eccleston stepped into the Time Lord's Tardis for the first episode of the series in over 16 years.

Doctor Who signs up for a third series!!

David Tennant as Doctor WhoThe publicity bandwagon has started rolling in to town for the much-anticipated second series of Doctor Who, which will mark Scots actor David Tennant's first full season in the guise of the famous time-traveling Gallifreyan.

Most of the main U.K. media outlets and tabloid newspapers are gearing up for the launch of season 2 (date still to be announced) with a variety of interviews and features concentrating on the forthcoming series.

However, today's main news surrounded David Tennant agreeing to play The Doctor well into a third series, and perhaps beyond -- along with his companion, Rose Tyler, played by Billie Piper.

I'm excited to announce a recent addition to my 2006 Doctor Who episode guide & download webpage!! "School Reunion", featuring Sarah Jane Smith and K-9 from the Jon Pertwee/Tom Baker era has joined the existing line up of "The Christmas Invasion" and "New Earth"

Please be mindful of my limited bandwidth! Only download one episode at a time please!!
