The historic drama starring Alexandra Neldel draws 8 million viewers, for a 25 percent market share.

COLOGNE, Germany – Actress Alexandra Neldel proved she’s still the top draw for German audiences with the premiere of TV movie Die Rache der Wanderhure (The Revenge of the Wandering Whore), which drew 8.01 million viewers for a 25.3 percent market share Tuesday night on commercial channel Sat.1.

The historic drama, based on characters created by best-selling historic novelist Iny Lorentz, drew an astounding 27 percent share in the key 14-49 demographic. The film continues the adventures of Marie (Neldel), a medieval prostitute who defies prejudice and convention to make her way in the world.

The first TV film adaptation of the Wandering Whore epos drew a record 9.87 million viewers, a 31.3 per cent share, on Sat.1 in October 2010.

While the sequel didn’t hit that high water mark, its performance was more than good enough to win the night. Sat.1 easily outperformed CSI: Miami on competitor RTL, which drew just 3.25 million viewers for a 9.7 percent share.
