How big was ‘Doctor Who’ on Tumblr on Saturday?

Since we’re talking numbers, we should mention that we asked Tumblr analytics firm Union Metrics to tell us just how big the fandom was on The Day of The Doctor…

And the answer came back in a single sentence:

Because of you, Saturday, November 23, 2013, The Day of The Doctor, was the biggest television event they’d ever seen on Tumblr.

5.0 million posts
4.9 million reblogs
3.1 million likes
1.0 million contributors

It was bigger than the VMAs, the Super Bowl, and the Grammys…

…combined.

We’ve always said that the Doctor Who fandom on Tumblr was bigger on the inside. Now we all have a better idea of just how big that inside is.

And what’s amazing is we’re still growing.

Congrats, Whovians.

Both Jenna and Time Lord Matt Smith said they tried to avoid going online too much and did not use Twitter.

Matt said: “I spend so much time on my phone and I find the idea that you communicate your life via Twitter quite peculiar so it doesn’t really interest me. “It is not up my street, I am not on Facebook either, I just cant be bothered.”

Jenna added: “I am the same it is just about trying to keep off the internet really.”


PSA: neither Matt Smith nor Jenna Coleman are on Twitter

When they do post they post through the Doctor Who (Public Service) Blog, Doctor Who Facebook Page, and this here Doctor Who Tumblr.
