Doctor Who News: Reports " had an estimated audience of 3.58 million viewers, a share of 20.6% of the total TV audience, according to unofficial overnight viewing figures "
Lets Get Real:
After the depressing Thursday it was nice to have Doctor Who back on form, the Doctor on Mars trying to stop a War between 1881 UK Armed Forces and the Ice Warriors, to be fair to the Doctor he was in awkward place, the British had invaded Mars, the local residents were not happy to say the least. The Doctor spent most of the episode trying to make sure that neither side killed each other, of course both sides tried to do so. What was excellent was the guest stars, they were given back stories, made you care about them, the Colonel turned out to be a hero of a kind, even if he did shoot his 2nd in Command, the Doctor did not seem that bothered on that subject. It was nice see at the start and finish the lines, God Save the Queen, the Queen must think this 1974 again, when she faced having to have two elections!!!
