Doctor Who - Legend Of The Sea Devils, had an audience of 2.2 million according to unofficial overnight viewing figures. 

The figure is disappointing for the series, making Doctor Who the 11th most-watched programme on Easter Sunday. 

Doctor Who was pitched against  Britain's Got Talent on ITV 1,  which won the day with 5.2 million watching.  The new ITV drama The Thief, His Wife and the Canoe on ITV had an overnight audience of 4.71m.

Final figures, released next week, will include those who recorded the episode and who watched it later. 

The current lowest rated episode of Doctor Who was the first episode of the 1989 story Battlefield, which has 3.10 million viewers
