The ratings are in… and it’s very good news indeed. Trojan averaged out at 1.46 million, or a 6.3% share of the total television audience. And that’s just the overnights – it doesn’t factor in Dave Ja Vu, same-week repeats and PVR viewings. It beat BBC Four, BBC Three, ITV2 and CHANNEL 4 in its timeslot. It’s the second highest rated UKTV programme of all time, behind Back To Earth. The fact that it’s slightly down onBTE shouldn’t concern us – bank holiday weekend ratings are always higher than a standard mid-week slot, and Series X has six episodes worth of total viewings to gather.
Coming up later today – a proper Dwarfcast version of our Trojan Instant Reaction. We haven’t quite managed to fix all of the sound problems (although they are improved), but at least we’ve taken out the 20 minutes of dead air in the middle. We’ll also be posted our massive written review of the episode either later today or early tomorrow. Please don’t break our website again in the meantime.
