    That good news what will be interesting is the figures for this Sunday. Will the content of the last episode put some people of, although I do not think so it will be interesting to see as it will probably act as guide what way the series will be moving in the future. I think their a strong possibility it will be tone although I hope not.

    Is it still only a few million average for the digital channels? Digital viewing figures fall way short of the main terrestrial channels. Even BBC2 and Channel 4 get better averages on some programmes. Mind you, the 2.4 million viewers Torchwood got is about a million more than Channel 5 will ever get.

    I wonder what the combined BBC2 and BBC3 viewing numbers are?

    /edit: I realise now it's for homegrown shows. That's actually pretty impressive for a digital channel series.

    Isnt 2.4 million about double the old BBC3 record?
    Equality is not a concept. It's not something we should be striving for. It's a necessity. Equality is like gravity. We need it to stand on this earth as men and women. And the misogyny that is in every culture is not a true part of the human condition. It is life out of balance, and that imbalance is sucking something out of the soul of every man and woman who is confronted with it.

    Really? I didn't know. I haven't kept track of channel viewing numbers for ages now. Are there any figures for the BBC2 broadcast?

    That figure is pretty amazing when you think about how few people in the UK have access to the channel and that its on relatively late on a Sunday night

    I'll be interested to see if the numbers stay up given all the complaints I've seen about the show. Although for all the complaining being done I think folks are still watching.

    I'm glad the numbers are good. Hopefully they'll stay that way. Feels a bit weird to love something that a lot of other people seem to be grumbling about, though. Makes me feel very AU.
