Peaking with 746,000 viewers, in all 1.1 million Canadians watched some or all of the episode.

In next week's episode, "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship," premiering Saturday, Sept. 8 at 9 p.m. ET exclusively on SPACE, an unmanned spaceship hurtles towards certain destruction - unless the Doctor (Matt Smith) can save it, and its impossible cargo...of dinosaurs! By his side are a ragtag gang of adventurers, including a big game hunter, an Egyptian Queen, and a surprised member of the Pond family. But little does the Doctor know there is someone else onboard who will stop at nothing to keep hold of his precious, prehistoric cargo.
