The team behind the BBC’s Official Doctor Who website have been nominated for International Interactive Emmy Award.

The award recognises innovation in media beyond broadcast television – for instance the Web, the Interactive TV services, TARDISODES on mobile phones, etc.

“The Doctor Who television series has always been at the forefront of creative innovation, and we’ve been determined that our interactive and online offerings are equally ambitious,” said Interactive Producer Rob Francis. “In the past year we’ve launched the highly successful Comic Maker application, which allows fans to create their very own online adventures. This follows on from previous innovations such as the Attack Of The Graske interactive TV adventure starring David Tennant, and the TARDISODE episode prequels for mobile phones.

“These, plus our ongoing work on the website itself have helped make Doctor Who the BBC’s most important programme support interactive offering. Everyone here at BBC Wales New Media is very passionate about their work on Doctor Who, and very flattered to have been nominated. We’re already working hard on some exciting new interactive features for Series Four.”

So good news there for fans, and congratulations to the team on your nomination. They find themselves opposite Spooks, ITV soap Emmerdale and Sweden’s The Truth About Marika for the award.
