The Day Of The Doctor Hits UK Cinema Charts

The Day Of The Doctor ranked in the UK cinema charts this weekend after showings of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special in 450 screens shot it into third place. The chart success comes in the week that entertainment ranking service Rentrak have announced that Event Cinema releases will be included in the official UK chart.

The Day Of The Doctor, starring Matt Smith, David Tennant and John Hurt, brought in £1.7 million from the simultaneous screening which took place at the same time as the international TV broadcast. It was beaten only in the UK film rankings by The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Gravity

The figures so far released do not include the total for the Sunday repeat screenings.

The Day Of The Doctor will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on 2nd December in the UK and 10th December in the USA
