Viewers continued to enjoy Poldark last night with 6.2 million people watching episode 3, which was 26.5% of all TV viewers (Overnights.TV). Episode 1 had 6.9 million (29%) and episode 2, 6.7 million (28.2").
Poldark is well up on the BBC's viewing average for this 9pm Sunday night slot which has been 5.1 million (21.6%) for the last year. It also soundly beats the competition with Sunday's episodes of Mr Selfridge and Indian Summers drawing 3.7 m and 1.2 m respectively.
The consolidated weekly viewing figures for Poldark episode 2 remained strong at 8.1m compared to 8.7 m the previous week, according to Barb. This put it in third place behind Comic Relief (8.5m) and The Voice Sunday (8.3m) for the week 9-15 March.
