2009 HUGO Awards Nominations

Doctor Who receives two nominations in the 2009 HUGO Awards lists – the series fourth year on the trot since its 2005 return, and the second in succession where two stories are represented.

This time around it’s the turn of Steven Moffat’s Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead to be nominated – giving the writer his fourth nomination in succession as well as the chance to add to his earlier awards.

Of particular note however is the presence of Turn Left – an episode heavy on sci-fi staples such as alternate history and therefore possibly not as worthy of a place in the nominations as Russell T Davies’ other cracker from 2008, Midnight – realistically the only story from Doctor Who capable of giving Moffat’s Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead a run for his money.

Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form
The Constant – Los
Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog
Revelations – Battlestar Galactica
Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead – Doctor Who (w. Steven Moffat)
Turn Left – Doctor Who (w. Russell T Davies)

Congratulations of course go to both writers on the nominations, along with hopes of yet another Doctor Who success!
