Daleks? Not a problem. Cybermen. Same goes. But when it comes to Ant and Dec The Doctor may need a bigger sonic screwdriver.  Saturday’s ‘The Rings of Akhaten’ had an audience of 5.5 million, sharing 28.8% of the total TV audience.  Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway topped the list with 7.3 million tuning in, while The Voice came next with 6.4 million viewers.

Once again The Doctor was third place. This perhaps reflects the lighter nights and early time slot, but the dark reach of Ant and Dec should never be underestimated. The final ratings are due to be released next week and are expected to show a notable increase in ratings for those who timeshift. Ant and Dec may have won the battle but will the Doctor win the war.
Still, ‘The Oncoming Storm’ took down Harry Hill again, with Doctor Who winning the time slot against You’ve Been Framed Rides Again! (attracting an audience of 3.4 million). Bow ties beat big lapels!
