Poldark is at No.2 and 3 in the top 20 requested programmes on iplayer for April 2015!
The BBC figures show that episode 5 and 6 got 1,449,000 and 1,068,000 requests respectively. The only show to get more was Peter Kay's Car Share with 1,495,000. Poldark's episode 7 was also in the top 20 at number 13 with 940,000 requests.
The figures for episode 5 of Poldark on iplayer beat those for episode 1 (1,192,000) although the BBC did not capture all the data in March. This may be accounted for by episode 5 being shown on Easter Sunday, as the consolidated viewing figures of 6.95m for the episode, showed a drop in viewing compared to the episodes in the weeks before and after. As one would expect, people who missed the drama on the Sunday, caught up on iplayer.
