Re: I will watch it eventually
Gallifreybase "rate and review poll" 1800 votes when I checked just now 24% rate it 9 out 10 ("excellent") and 75% rate it 7 ("well above average") or better.
On that unscientific poll, fandom is fairly happy with this episode.
Overnights: 4.81 million viewers, 21% of audience, there was a shift of audience to ITV at the end of Strictly (which had 44% of audience at one point)
Overnights have been level from episode to episode so far. So no sign the average viewer is giving up on it either.
