The seven day consolidated figure for Poldark S2 Episode 5 was 5.95 m, its lowest figure ever. The Series 1 low was 6.8m (episode 7) and Series 2 premiered with 6.7m.
The 7 day consolidated figures are produced by BARB; the data gives the number of people watching a programme on the day plus those who recorded it and played it back within a seven day period. The figures do not include iplayer: these should be available from the BBC at a later date.
Last night's finale of Victoria was watched by 5.5m (25.5% share), the best figure since the premiere according to OvernightsTV. Victoria's seven day consolidated figure for the previous week's episode was 7.3m.
It was good news from Australia where Episode 3 of Poldark S2 aired last night to an audience of 502,000 in the five city metro area, well up from the 453,000 of the previous week (TV Tonight).
