Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

LONG-run­ning hit Si­lent Wit­ness tri­umphed in a head-to-head clash of the crime dra­mas as it edged ahead of Broad­church, ac­cord­ing to rat­ings.

The BBC1 foren­sic pathol­ogy pro­gramme – star­ring Emilia Fox – pulled in an av­er­age au­di­ence of 5.9mil­lion view­ers, while the ITV pro­gramme man­aged 5.7mil­lion, which in­cluded view­ers of its catch-up +1 chan­nel.

Broad­church, which was was one of the TV hits of 2013 for its first se­ries, had been the win­ner when the two shows were screened at the same time a week ear­lier.

Broad­church, which stars David Ten­nant and Olivia Col­man ( above), had last week pulled in 6.1mil­lion, which put it 600,000 ahead, but Mon­day night’s episode drew its low­est ever au­di­ence.

The first se­ries kicked off with 6.8mil­lion in March 2013, with 8.7mil­lion watch­ing its fi­nale the fol­low­ing month.

The sec­ond se­ries has seen its au­di­ence de­cline by 1.9mil­lion from the 7.6mil­lion who watched the open­ing episode ear­lier this month. KOALA bears and hu­mans have sim­i­lar fin­ger­prints
