Re: What minimum ratings does dr who need to get to not be canceled

Who knows? It isn't just about ratings. The BBC has cancelled successful series before simply because it's felt a show's gone as far as it can. There's also the cost of producing it to consider. Even if it continues to pull in 7/8 million viewers each week, if it's felt the cost of producing it is prohibitive then it might be cancelled.
I think it’s unlikely whilst it’s still successful but you never know.

My rough guess would be that if it dropped below 5mil (after time shift/iPlayer etc.) consistently it might be in trouble.
