TORONTO, Sept. 10, 2012 /CNW/ - Dinosaurs, Queen Nefertiti and a "spaceship the size of Canada" were no match for the Time Lord as Saturday night's episode of DOCTOR WHO drew an astronomical 575,000 viewers on SPACE, making it the #1 program on television overall Saturday with the key A18-49 demo. For the second week in a row, SPACE was the #1 network - conventional or specialty - in the DOCTOR WHO timeslot (Saturday night at 9 p.m. ET) with total viewers and in the key A25-54 and A18-49 demos. The episode peaked at 693,000 viewers and attracted 817,000 unique viewers.

In next week's episode, "A Town Called Mercy," premiering Saturday, Sept. 15 at 9 p.m. ET exclusively on SPACE, The Doctor (Matt Smith) gets a Stetson (and a gun!) and finds himself the reluctant Sheriff of a Western town under siege by a relentless cyborg, who goes by the name of "The Gunslinger." But who is he and what does he want? The answer seems to lie with the mysterious Kahler-Jex, another alien doctor whose initial appearance is hiding a dark secret.
