Strong ratings for Torchwood Miracle Day on Starz

John Barrowman{jcomments on}Early figures have been released for the premier of Torchwood Miracle Day on Starz.

TVLine is reporting that the opening episode of Torchwood’s fourth season was seen by 819,000 viewers. The news site adds that when the figures for the replay are factored in that figure rises significantly to 1.5 million viewers. That’s not a bad launch for Torchwood and these figures do not include time-shift viewers – which will probably see ratings rise even further. Much will be made of the premier figure but it will be ratings for the following episodes that will really determine the fate of the series – and its performance on BBC One.

In the UK Torchwood Miracle Day launches on Thursday evening at 9pm on BBC One.
