BBC America announces the U.S. premiere of Doctor Who featuring Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor.
On the heels of returning from San Diego Comic Con where BBC America saw a strong reception to its Doctor Who programming and panels (including appearing in person, David Tennant, John Barrowman, and Russell T Davies), and with the strong ratings that the recent airing of Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead brought in, BBC America has announced the acquisition of 13 episodes of the new upcoming Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor series. The new series shot in HD will be shown on BBC America shortly after the UK in the second quarter of 2010.
BBC America has reported that the week of July 20, 2009 was their best week ever in terms of ratings due to Torchwood and Doctor Who premiering that week in the US.
The channel's most successful series ever, Torchwood: Children of Earth reached 3.3m with an average audience of 705,000 viewers per episode. The finale on Friday of that week seeing 807,000 viewers, the largest average audience in history for BBC America.
Also performing strongly was Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead with 657,000 viewers.
Now that Torchwood: Children of Earth has been televised on both sides of the Atlantic, it is clear that it is a ratings champ all around.
In the UK, the estimated numbers for the BBC showing started strong and maintained its audience throughout the week long series (26.8%). Torchwood: Children of Earth, a five part series was shown consecutively Monday through Friday in the UK starting on 6th of July and then BBC America followed suit showing them on consecutive nights starting on the 20th of July.
