Could Doctor Who be heading back to Saturdays?

One of the biggest shake-ups the BBC made last year was to move Doctor Who from its Saturday evening slot, to Sundays. 

However, The Mirror has claimed that the BBC are planning to move Doctor Who back to Saturdays due to a “a steady ratings slide”.

The report states that even though the Final Ratings proved successful, the overnight figures saw a steady slide, nearly 8 million viewers turned in to see the new Doctor, however by the last episode just over 5 million viewers were watching. The series averaged 5.7 million across the 10 episodes.

Normally we would take this with a pinch of salt, however the Mirror correctly reported that Doctor Who would move to Sundays, as well as reporting that instead of a Christmas Special, we would instead see a New Years Special.

Doctor Who will return in early 2020 and see Jodie Whitaker return for her second series as the 13th Doctor - alongside companions Graham, Ryan and Yaz who will also return.
