Doctor Foster tops iPlayer charts for September

Returning show receives nine million requests throughout the month

The new series of acclaimed drama Doctor Foster has topped September’s charts for BBC iPlayer. 

The four episodes airing throughout September received nine million requests on the iPlayer platform. 

All five episodes are available to watch as a full series on BBC iPlayer until early November.

New detective series Strike, which adapts JK Rowling’s two novels about detective Cormoran Strike, The Cuckoo’s Calling and Silkworm, also performed well, with three episodes in the top 20 most popular programmes in September.

The return of Strictly Come Dancing also proved popular, as did new crime series Rellik, each getting over a million requests.

There were 239 million requests for TV programmes on BBC iPlayer in September, up on the same time last year.

Dan McGolpin, controller, programming and daytime, said: “Fantastic content has driven a strong September for BBC iPlayer.

“We’ve had the return of brilliant shows like Doctor Foster and Strictly joined by superb new series like Strike and Rellik, all of which has made for a great start to the autumn season.”
