'Poldark' at MipCom 2016

This week ITV Studios, the international distributors of Poldark, are promoting the show at MipCom, a global entertainment market where TV programmes are bought and sold.

Aidan Turner as Ross graces the 'Welcome' page of ITV Studios Programme Highlights 2016, with details of the drama appearing a few pages later.

ITV Studios have a rather neat sales 'house' at MipCom this year: the photos of the 'house' being constructed and of it complete are via DesignScene WW

Here's wishing ITV Studios a terrific week with their sales of Poldark.

Audience Numbers for 'Poldark'

Poldark, S2, Episode 7, viewing figures, aidan turner

With no Victoria on ITV to compete with and a cracking episode of Poldark last night it's good to see the overnight viewing figures edge towards the 5 million mark this week, with an audience of 4.96m which is a 22.4% share of viewers, according to OvernightsTV. The small increase on the previous week (4.9m) means episode 7 was the third most popular of this series so far.

The seven day consolidated figures from Barb (which do not include BBC iplayer) give an audience of 6.16 m which is good news after the previous episode's dip below the 6m mark. While the number of viewers for series two has not matched those for series one, Poldark is BBC One's best performing drama in September and October. This week, for example, the shows with higher audiences were The Great British Bake Off, Strictly Come Dancing, The Apprentice, Eastenders and Countryfile.

NB: We usually take a look at the viewing figures for Australia here too, but they don't seem to be out yet, so we'll catch up with those next week.
