I'd disagree for two reasons: Long time Who fans were expecting a Christmas show, and were (to my surprise) extremely loud and nasty about it (on social media). Also, it was very poorly advertised, at least here in the USA. I never saw a single ad for it, and the only mention of it on BBC America you could find was by following the Dr. Who show link. Bad.Assuming the traditional "let's all sit down and watch tv" viewing experience, I would actually argue that Christmas Day is more hectic than New Year's Day and would so would expect higher figures for the latter. But those figures are considerably lower than others in this series so that's a real oddity.
