RATINGS! George Gently, The Durrells, Grantchester, Bigheads, The Trial viewing figures

Grantchester 2017 series 3

The return of Inspector George Gently for its final series interested 5 million viewers last night.

The first of two episodes of the BBC One drama averaged 5 million viewers between 8:30PM and 10PM on Sunday evening.

However it wasn't the most watched show of the day, with that title going to Antiques Roadshow on BBC One which had 5.7 million viewers.

Slightly earlier in the evening on the Beeb, Countryfile averaged 5.3 million viewers, down 300,000 on last weekend.

Over on ITV, dramas The Durrells and Grantchester both continued with their latest episodes scoring 3.9 million and 3.6 million viewers respectively.

That's a notable drop for both from their previous showings: The Durrells was down 400,000 on last week's number and Grantchester fell 800,000 week-on-week.

Earlier in the evening, Jason Manford's new wacky gameshow Bigheads continued with 1.9 million viewers, matching last week's series low.

The series, which had started last month with 2.8 million viewers, will conclude its first series next Sunday night.

On BBC Two, Dara and Ed's Road to Mandalay was the channel's most watched programme as the series concluded its three part run with 1.3 million viewers.

Finally, over on Channel 4 at 9PM, new series The Trial: A Murder In The Family started with 1.5 million viewers.

The series, which follows the authentic trying of a fictional crime, will continue at 9PM nightly all this week.
