The new version of cult sci-fi TV show Doctor Who has become an instant hit in Britain - the first episode attracted a staggering 10.5 million viewers on Saturday night (26MAR05).

The programme returned to screens at the weekend after a 16-year absence, with GONE IN 60 SECONDS star Christopher Ecclestone playing the eccentric time travelling doctor and former pop star Billie Piper as his side-kick.

And it blew rival shows out of the water, winning a 44.3 per cent share of TV viewers.

A spokesperson for the BBC says, "We're pleased so many people sat down as a family to watch the return of the Doctor."
