Jodie Whittaker’s debut as The Doctor is officially ratings gold as it earns a 40% market share in it’s native U.K.. Previous Doctor's debuts maxed out at 8 million viewers in the UK, this time it averaged at 8.2 million viewers and peaked at 9 million. 

Along with the ratings success the after show special gave us a peak at this seasons guest stars. The guest stars are going to be exciting to say the least with highlights including Chris Noth, Mark Addy, Phyllis Logan, Lee Mack and the one that has us the most excited, Alan Cumming.

The question was out whether or not this season would be a winner, and if these numbers are any indication it’s a resounding, “YES”.
